Digital signage can play an essential role in enhancing employee communication in an age where talent around the world craves real-time feedback, appreciation and inclusivity. The Human era of employment can be challenging to navigate but applying digital solutions to existing strategies can assist in reshaping the workplace.
Life is not about work, and work is not the sole purpose of life. The Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the already-present shift to a more human era of employment allowing talent to experience flexibility, better communication, and work-life balance. Studies have shown that many employees from around the world have since been hesitant to return to the office after they got a taste of the good life, leading to The Great Resignation.
The workforce has never looked so different thanks to technological prosperity. The foundation of most workplaces has been upgraded to match the modern world. The human era of employment encompasses interconnectivity, flexibility, value, and work-life balance. Moreover, it is an era of people who know what they want and are not afraid to make their voices heard, leading to a shift in power dynamics that have affected almost every industry around the world.
For the first time in history, we are witnessing five generations of employees working together, and organisations of all sizes are learning to adapt and prosper in the new age of employment. The recipe for success in the 21st century includes caring for people's individual needs and cultivating a positive culture across locations. Of course, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to adapting to the human era of employment, but the foundation of adapting is creating a solid communications strategy that enables talent to engage with their company despite their location.
How companies inspire their teams to live up to their highest potential as employees, individuals and colleagues is the core essence of what a more human era of employment can achieve.
The future of work as they call it is one where humanity and culture co-exist, and this stance will continue to strengthen and grow until companies realise that their success rests on how well they treat their talent or, in other words, how human they can make them feel.
The modern-day employee wants more than just a fat salary increase- they want to understand how their hard work contributes to the organization's overall success, and they want to understand how they can be a part of the bigger picture.
Diversity and Inclusivity
Regardless of their race or nationality, every employee should feel empowered, feel respected, and valued at their workplace.
It is the responsibility of leaders to provide a workspace where every employee feels like they belong. Inclusive working environments attract and retain their talent and are known to acquire customers in the process.
Inclusivity goes beyond internal culture; it enhances a brand's reputation, inspires creativity, and fosters a culture where ideas and different backgrounds are not only valued but celebrated.
Modern challenges require modern solutions, and one unique and easy method of engaging and communicating with staff in a more human way is by incorporating workplace digital signage into internal communications.
