Man is a unique resource because he is only limited in rational and limited control.
Anyone as the leader of a company or in a supervisory role knows how hard it can be to motivate the employees. At the same time, this skill is very useful. As different studies show, positively-inspired employees play a decisive role in operating success.
In comparison to unmotivated employees, motivated colleagues aspired up to 36% more performance on the job – A potential that can lead to profitable changes.
Motivation of the Next Generation
Feel-good-Manager, Sabbatical, and Work-Life-Balance are buzzwords that inevitably appear to our minds when we think of employee motivation. But, besides the classic tools in this segment, there are also technical aids, the origin of which lies in the digitalization.
We will show you how you use a monitor and a Digital Signage player to add games, fun, and excitement into your office and which motivation possibilities could be implemented with Digital Signage.
Digital Signage Applications are more than just advertising medians. In the non-commercial area, they can at times be used for information transmission successfully. Especially in companies, lack of information can cause a mood to turn bad quickly. That influences the employee motivation.
This often fails because people do their job, but many do not even question or understand “why”. Clear and transparent company communication can help to explain the goals and visions to the team.
A Digital Signage Installation can assist with this. Graphically prepared, each employee can track the current status, as well as the distance to the goal.
Openly communicated goals motivate, as the achievements so far are visualized and changes are visible immediately. The big annual goals are thus broken down into well-managed stages and the team can make the necessary tasks easier to manage.
At the same time, the transparent communication of the company is reflected, an aspect, which according to a McKinsey Analyse can raise the employee productivity of up to 25%.
Employee Motivation through Appreciation
The first day in the new company has come. The new employee comes to the reception, and there you go. On the at the entrance installed 60” screen, he will be greeted personally by name and with a picture.
A nice way to show appreciation and the employee will thank you in return with his motivation. This way, you will show him that the company has put things into thought and is already expecting him.
At the same time, all the current employees are informed of the newbie and can place a face to the name thanks to this digital solution. That makes the entry process a little easier because it limits the barrier of having to introduce oneself to every single employee. A modern way to motivate employees. We hope for a good Start!
The company’s management team has a very definite idea of how the company is perceived by customers. But it is not less important to find out how the employees view the business. There is no form of expression that is stronger and more emotionalizing than the pictorial language.
With a social wall, you are at this point full in the trend. Use Digital Signage and provide your team with a visual platform, on which pictures of the company, the own products, the next summer festival, or the coming up Christmas party are displayed. Create your company own hashtag and with the right software, all pictures with this keyword will be displayed on your screen.
The colleagues are encouraged by the direct presentation of their posts to generate new content immediately. Thus, a lively exchange can be initiated and the team has a varied common ground. That loosens the work atmosphere. As a result, the motivation of the employees rises.
Alternatively, you could illustrate a companywide photo contest with the social wall. This can be used to determine how the company is perceived by the colleagues. As a theme, the following headline could be used as an example: Describe, using a picture, how you see the company and post your coolest shot with the #….!
Gamification as a Trigger for Employee Motivation
Playfully designed challenges are easier for most people. This fact is not new, but the connection of Digital Signage and gamification as a motivation tool is. In a self-test, we developed an application to motivate employees through sporting goals and at the same time to promote the team spirit. Hereby, the internal motivation, always to better oneself, is addressed.
A Digital Signage Installation combined with a few wearables turn your office into an Olympic Arena. The combination of fitbit and viewneo shows how wide the application possibilities of Digital Signage really are.
The participants are motivated through real-time success seen on the screens, which are made public. In single or team challenges, different tournaments can be played. The presentation takes place in an illustrated environment and underlines the gaming elements. In different contests, you can find out who the true hero of the office is.
Start your own tournament, because competition stimulates your staff!
