Want to connect and engage with employees? Build a workforce mobile app.

Are your employees happy? Now more than ever, it’s important to connect with your workers and make sure they are engaged with you. Engaged employees tend to be happier and more satisfied at work. And that makes workers more productive and more loyal to your company.

According to Gallup, just 33 percent of American workers are engaged by their jobs. Fifty-two percent say they’re “just showing up,” and 17 percent describe themselves as “actively disengaged.” That means most employers have a lot of work to do to unlock the full potential of their workforce.

So here’s the tricky part — making sure your employees feel they are a valued part of your organization and that you will help them unlock their full potential.

  • Do you encourage your employees to find satisfaction in the work they do?
  • Are you connecting employees with each other so they can collaborate?
  • Have you created a community and culture that engages your employees?

Here are some ways that a workforce mobile app can help your employees connect, engage, and collaborate with you and each other:

Create a sense of community

Now more than ever, companies must create a sense of community for workers. One of the easiest ways to bring your remote workers and in-office employees together is with a mobile app. Everyone has a mobile phone. And we all know how to use mobile apps. By setting up a no code, custom branded app, your organization can connect your workforce and share a “single source of truth” for all of your pertinent and relevant content and information.

Unite employees with internal communications

With a mobile app, it’s so easy to communicate by sending instant, non-intrusive push notifications to app users. Notifications can be sent globally to everyone in your app or to specific channels or groups that you set up. Share company-wide announcements from the CEO. Let your sales team know a new product or service is available. Use news articles to provide tips and tricks to your employees who are working from home. Group chats can be set up to communicate among channels, teams, or departments.

Keep employees informed with timely, relevant updates

A mobile app lets you load the most current information into your app in real-time. Everyone is accessing and sharing the exact same information. What happens when it becomes out of date? In a matter of seconds, it can be deleted from the app and a new version loaded — replacing the old version instantly.

Your entire staff can use your mobile app and access the content they need in a matter of seconds, right at their fingertips. Employees can locate timely information on their smartphones — whether they’re working from home, in the office, or out on a sales call.

Make it easy for employees to collaborate

Your employees may be working from home, in the office, or have a flexible work schedule. For that matter, your workers may also be scattered across the country or the world. How can your employees efficiently interact with each other? Our Cardware mobile app offers push notifications, a newsroom, email, group chat, feedback on content in the app, a Zoom integration, and much more!

Share mission-critical information

In today’s climate, businesses must be prepared to instantly and efficiently communicate breaking news to employees. For instance, COVID-19 has created the need for real-time updates that can be immediately shared with your entire organization. Additionally, you can set up active shooter or biohazard alerts so that you can quickly share critical information to your workforce.
