Remote employee engagement
September 3, 2021
During this historic time, many are working from home or on furlough and are struggling with finding structure and helpful information each day. I, for one, find myself consumed by the news which makes it tough to focus on what feels like insignificant tasks. Like many, I’ve been documenting my days through a blog – I’ve also been seeking out suggestions from others in our virtual community in an effort to feel connected and productive. These are some of the best tips and for sure, they are simple and common sense, but when life feels overwhelming simple is tough to achieve. Do I succeed in implementing these each day? Of course not, but knowing the destination is helpful, even if you don’t quite get there. It’s time to connect your team with remote employee engagement ideas. Learn what digital signage can do for your employee engagement?
Caution: Do not add stress to your life by jotting down tasks that you will in no way accomplish. If you were not already hopping out of bed at 5 to make bread then take a run around the neighborhood, don’t court failure by adding super-human tasks
Stay connected with your employees
It’s easy to find yourself at the kitchen table attacking that to-do list without any interaction with other humans (in this scenario, partners and kids do not count?). For employers, it’s so important right now to be communicating vividly and often with your staff. They may be uneasy about their job, the company’s health, and how their colleagues are faring. One great tip is to use your investment in your digital signage network to communicate with employees. You may ask “How will you get your message across if no one is in the office to see the screens?” If you have computer-based employees, they have screens right in front of them! You just need to find access to it.
With our content management software, WovenManager, your marcom teams can continue to create messaging including engaging video content and push it to your workforce – adding a bit of normal to their day and giving them much-needed information. Wovenmedia has always had this notion of an evergreen URL associated with a playlist or channel. It’s so easy to share the URL of your HR playlist for example. The best part is that when you update the content, the URL doesn’t change – only the content does. So imagine a weekly email with a playlist or a link on your intranet.

If you are isolating with your family, you may be spending a lot of time with people who you love dearly, but frankly aren’t used to being in close proximity to every day, all day.
