More and more, employee apps are becoming very popular to help streamline workforce management initiatives across companies of all shapes and sizes. There are many tools out there for workforce management, but most of them usually focus on a specific area such as HR administration, benefits, time and attendance, etc. Using an employee app for communications can help make the experience of utilizing your workforce management tools even better.
In this article, we will explore just how this layer can tie all the different pieces of the HR workforce management puzzle together.
Many professionals in HR, even in internal communications and corporate affairs, spend countless hours and budgets to create platforms for workforce management, making the workplace more productive and easier to get access to. This is where the employee app for communications can play a huge role. Think of the employee app as the first place everyone lands when they begin their day and the last place they exit from when the day is over. Integrating all your existing HRIS platforms and linking them directly into a single employee communications platform makes it easy for people to find what they’re looking for and get the information they need in order to do their jobs well.
Workforce management can be effectively streamlined inside of an employee app by helping management not only take care of the basic HR daily tasks like job scheduling, timesheets, performance management, and tracking absences but also communicating mission, vision, and values, while getting important messages across to the right people, at the right place, at the right time.
Just think of how difficult and cumbersome it can be to streamline the process of personnel management without automating onboarding, organizing all your tools and their data, and running the entire recruiting process in general. Just this simple example can be solved very easily inside an employee communications app.
Workforce management is basically a set of procedures and processes that companies have to develop and implement in order to manage productivity. But if you’re not effectively providing the correct access and answering the question of why your employees have to access these platforms, then the effort can become fruitless for the company. Using employee apps for communications and engagement means your employees can find information that they need, understand why it’s important that they have to complete said tasks, and participate in order to keep productivity moving.
Using advanced tools such as employee segmentation means you can push the right content and systems to the right people. Tailoring the experience inside of the employer makes it highly relevant and more engaging. You can even add the layer of gamification on top to incentivize your employees with points, rewards, recognition, and more so that they take part in these workforce management platforms that you have rolled out.
It can get very confusing to employees when you ask them to have multiple platform apps and multiple systems to access. Using an employee app streamlining everything into one single platform makes workforce management a lot easier. Would you like to see how?
