Demands for enterprise mobility and flexibility are a new reality in today’s workforce, and employers have turned to mobile apps, such as Continuwell, to meet these demands. The right technology can increase productivity, enhance communication, and improve employee engagement. A standard app off the shelf is not likely to engage your employees because it does not solve problems specific to them and it does not feel like it is part of the company. Develop or customize a brand-specific application that is unique to your company’s mobility goals.
For example, your customized app allows you to make sure that the app includes critical information that is relevant for employees. In a recent survey, 58 percent of respondents indicated that access to critical information was their first priority in deciding to adopt an app. Focus on the features employees will need in a mobile environment. Have an app that encompasses essential workflows, empowers your employees, and supports productivity, such as access to healthcare resources when employees or their family members get sick.
Important benefits of custom apps include:
Customize to your company: Use company branding to improve team spirit and pride in the company name. Have the app reflect what is significant to your company and employees. Highlight the resources that are important to them so that they are easy to access.
Use it to communicate with employees: Keep the team spirit going. Make sure that the app allows you to segment employee groups so that it is also personalized. Send push notifications that include messages or videos to keep employees engaged. Send quick surveys to get employee feedback. Send event invitations to encourage employee participation.
To attract and retain exceptional employees, your business should support a culture of mobility, information sharing, and collaboration. Implement your enterprise mobility strategy and be prepared to enhance, change, and update your app to avoid falling behind demand.
