3 Reasons Your Organization Needs an Employee App

Today, in order to attract and retain employees, organizations have been forced to rethink the way they work and adopt a modern approach for productivity, communication, and engagement through mobile enablement.

After all, our smartphones and tablets have become a huge part of our lives. As Mike Brinker, global Deloitte Digital leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP shared in a post: “Smartphones now empower and dominate our personal lives. Mobile technology isn’t just a phone — it’s a supercomputer in our pocket. It connects us to family, friends, and businesses in ways few could imagine when the first smartphones emerged.”

Thanks to our smartphones, the workplace has been forever changed.

Tools for the Modern Age

As a result, leading organizations are adopting a mobile-native mindset by implementing their own employee platform, which employees can access anytime, anywhere via an app on their smartphone or tablet.

1. Accessibility

According to a LinkedIn article, 80% of workers, globally, are not stationed behind a desk every day. This means that, as an employer, unless you’re using an employee app to reach your employees, it’s likely the majority of your workforce are missing out on important company updates, are unable to access information concerning their employment, and, therefore, less connected to your company.

Benefits, salary, pension and insurances — employees are presented with a personalised experience.

2. Personalisation

Whether we’re streaming music or watching a film via an app or online, not only can we listen or watch whatever we like whenever we like, but we also get personalized recommendations based on our history and preferences.

3. One-Stop-Shop

McKinsey reported that employees spend 1.8 hours every day — 9.3 hours per week, on average — searching and gathering information. The report states, “The average interaction worker spends an estimated 28% of the workweek managing e-mail and nearly 20% looking for internal information or tracking down colleagues who can help with specific tasks.”

An employee app is a win-win for employee and employer.
