Improve Employee Experience with Technology
Creating a positive employee experience helps reduce burnout, increase productivity, and boost company culture in general.
While you certainly need to have the right values and mission in place, many technological solutions help improve your employee experience.
Here are some of the best ways to create a healthier workplace for both office and remote workers.
Implement Digital Signage
A straightforward way to improve the employee experience is with digital signage. Digital signage is precisely as the name suggests: displaying essential information on a digital screen. For example, you could share the latest COVID-19 health and safety policies, reminders for hand-washing, bulletins of company news, or employee highlights. The possibilities are endless for leveraging digital signage.
How does this improve the employee experience? For one, these signs are far more engaging. Therefore, they will catch your employee’s attention and ensure they receive the key information. This is important whether you are sharing important safety information or highlighting team members.
Furthermore, digital signage can help reduce time-consuming tasks for employees when digital signs are used to communicate with customers/clients. Digital signs can display key information so that employees do not have to spend the time giving the information to customers.
Create a Productive Environment with Sound Masking
Noise interrupts our productivity. At work, there can be a lot of distractions. From coworkers chatting to construction outside, there can be a ton of noise to tune out. A University of California Irvine study found that productivity drops by up to 40% due to noise and distractions. Workplace noise is a serious issue that impacts the productivity and overall well-being of employees.
One of the best ways to improve their experience and create a productive workspace is with sound masking. While it may not always be possible to sound-proof your office space, you can create a less distracting environment with sound masking.
Sound masking uses a simple background noise (white noise or pink noise) to disguise other noises. Since sound masking evenly distributes across a space, it helps block out other noises without distracting itself. Planar loudspeakers are an excellent option for sound masking. They are easy to install, and you need very few of them to provide effective sound masking.
Health and Safety with Thermal Scanning
Employees need to feel safe at work. As many businesses return to in-person and hybrid office setups, thermal scanning is an efficient way to keep your team safe.
Thermal scanning is an accurate, fast way to measure body temperature. Fever is a primary symptom of COVID-19, as well as other illnesses. The easy-to-use devices will measure the temperature of employees and customers before they enter, helping to identify those at risk for illness.
