Offering tools and platforms that help your employees reach higher modes of success and productivity should be at the heart of what is pushing your business further. Here at KXP, we know that the world is changing faster and faster. For you and your business, staying at the frontier of that change is important and ushering your employees into this new frontier with you is also necessary.
Growing a useful digital employee experience is about a team mindset. This type of mindset should be rooted in productivity, but it should also keep the well-being of the employee in mind. When growing and shifting business culture, no employee should be left in the dust. Growth—ultimately—will be fostered when everyone’s needs are taken into consideration.
What matters in digital realms?
What is a digital employee experience?
Is that a question you feel confident in answering?
According to Avanade, 84 percent of companies believe that email and social media alone constitute a digital workplace. But that’s certainly not the case. The reality is the digital employee experience is made up of many elements, one of which is employee experience, which according to Deloitte Insights, ranks high as a major trend in the year 2017.
The popularity of digital workspaces
A digital workspace is only one element of the overall digital employee experience. This workspace works most effectively when there is a seamless experience between a workstation to a mobile device to connect employees back to the work environment—wherever the employee may be.
The same tools that are available at the office should be at the employee’s fingertips when they are at a strategy session with a client over coffee, while they are traveling cross-country for a conference, or while they’re headed home at the end of the day and they may want to check in on a few last minute details to make sure everything was tabulated correctly. Business, then, can be taken anywhere, and the goal of having these workspaces be similar (read: identical) is meant to limit distractions.
When employees are able to continue working within their digital workspace, they’ll become more productive. With digital workspaces, productivity increases, employee engagement increases, and revenue growth is also presented.
24/7 access is always a necessity
There may be many options out there that can help ease the transition from one mode of working to another, but a cloud-based solution makes it easy for employees to login from anywhere. While someone might be traveling via train, plane, or car, a simple way to check in and see what business has been taking care of should always be an option on the table.
Personalized innovation for your unique strategies
Keeping up with the pace in the digital era may mean you need assistance. We get that. It can be hard to go at it alone, which is why we are professionals in the realm of creating productive and successful digital employee experiences.
Maximize effect + productivity
When the digital employee experience is both taken into effect and maximized, your organization will be stronger in attracting and retaining top talent, communicating, collaborating, and meeting the needs of a multi-generational workforce.
There may be employees on your payroll who remember waking up and walking to the end of their driveway to gather the morning paper, but you may also employ a handful of millennials who grew up with a smart phone in their hand as soon as they hit middle school. Accommodating and offering platforms that can help unite these different generations will not only help increase the bottom line, but will also help make strides in regards to business productivity and inter-office camaraderie.
Bolster your digital presence
Be on the lookout for ways you and your company can bolster the digital workspaces and realms that are required of the modern day employee. KXP is skilled in not only transforming digital realms to meet your needs, but also keeping your business agile. Now more than ever, organizations need innovation. We are here to help you and your employees keep pace, avoid burnout, and hopefully outperform your competition. At the end of the day, we are here to aid in the success of your endeavors.
When we speak about the digital employee experience, we do not mean the offices with large windows, colorful seats, and possible whimsical and modern art on the walls. The digital employee experience stems from the fact that “work” is no longer limited to an office-only environment. “Work” can be attended to as your employee is debarking from the airplane, while they’re catching a cross-town taxi, or taking care of last-minute details as they’re putting on the pasta to boil before their spouse and kids arrive home in the evening at the end of the day. Just as smartphones and the need for technology will not disappear in the months and years to come, “work” will no longer be the same, either.
Innovation + non-traditional work environments
Since employees will be working in a non-traditional (though it has become the new traditional format of conducting business), our aim is to make the experiences of your employees who are spending most of their working hours taking care of certain elements, tasks, and routines related to business on certain devices and application the best that it can be.
The most successful digital transformations are seamless and smooth. In the end, the hope is to integrate the role of individuals, with technology, and with process.
A well-designed digital workplace is at the core of an organization’s inside-out digital transformation process; a digital workplace is nothing if it is limited with device and firewall boundaries.
If an employee of yours is on-the-go, being able to access content, reports, tasks, feeds, and documents is paramount. Why stunt their success by not having an adequate digital employee experience in place?
