In the early digital transformation era, business solutions were mostly associated with management, productivity or performance.
Afterwards, companies quickly realized that these tools cannot succeed without the commitment and well-being of employees. Hence, they recognised there is a need to integrate this dimension into their transformation processes.
This puts more pressure on companies to provide tools that are agile and tailored to the needs of their employees.
According to Gallup, 51% of employees are not engaged. So, making all your employees want to work and collaborate with you should be a huge goal, if not a top priority. This can be achievable through leveraging the right tools for them to be more productive, to get the job done and hopefully to choose to stay at your company.
While technology itself cannot solely solve the problem of how to better engage with your employees and get the best outcomes, it nevertheless can help in significant ways.
Information sharing, innovation, creative collaboration, open interaction and flexibility: the role of technology in employee engagement is essentially limitless and will likely continue to evolve and expand.
