Employees are the best voice of any company's image. If they are informed and motivated, they will be more productive in their daily lives. They will be proud to use the company’s tools and services, will speak well of the company to their friends, family and contacts which will help in attracting new talent. The solution is obvious. Communication, recognition and encouragement. Giving workers the instruments, they need and the opportunities to feel useful and to turn ideas into differentiating projects that can change the world.
It is a long-distance race. Having an attractive company with ‘x-factor’ is a challenge. Being able to attract and retain the best professionals depends on the philosophy and way of working. Step by step, and from the inside, the company has to set foundations so that the workers feel part of the company and can become the best ambassadors.
I recently read an article in the Wall Street Journal about the need for companies to take into account what their employees’ needs are when rolling out new technologies. Many new technology initiatives fail because employees aren’t involved in the process at some level — whether it’s helping design a solution to their problems or providing regular feedback to their leadership teams on what’s working and what they need to be successful.
Even though it’s early, my discussions these first few months of the year tell me that “employee experience” is becoming one of the buzzwords of 2019. The CEOs and CTOs I’ve spoken with at companies of all types and sizes are talking about the need to provide a world-class workplace experience for their employees (and what that actually means).
Imagine you had a way to see exactly what IT issues were impacting your employees. And imagine you had one view showing both issue diagnosis and resolution path, with the possibility to take instant action with a one-click fix? Nexthink’s Digital Experience Score delivers just this by combining hard metrics with user sentiment data to give immediate visibility, context and understanding of employees’ experiences across key areas.
