4 more Strategies to Boost your People Power using Tech
The 4th industrial revolution #4IR is here and the future of work is digital. While tech gets the spotlight in #The Internet of Things people will still lead the way. People who are equipped and empowered with Artificial Intelligence #AI to make smarter business decisions.
How will having everything connected change our lives? More importantly, as talent leaders, how can our organizations get onto the party list?
Get started by making your business a smarter work-place by implementing these four strategies:
Net Promoter Scores (NPS) have dominated consumer metrics, measuring customer satisfaction by asking for input (by rating from -100 to 100). In the face of big data, tuned in companies are leveraging these metrics internally to determine employee satisfaction and engagement (lately coined #eNPS). eNPS puts only one question to employees on whether their workplace is a good place to work. By harnessing the power of this data, companies can simply and accurately measure the loyalty that exists between their employees and the business. #cultureamp tested the validity of this single question metric finding it correlated at 0.9 to conventional survey question results.
The number one way to engage your workforce is by ensuring they have the development tools needed to succeed on the job. While technology will never replace people as mentors, AI will allow your business to retain the best and brightest of the bunch, giving you the edge over competitors. Advanced learning tools, such as #Everwise , #Degreed , #Lynda, #Pathgather, and #EdCast allow your business to scale exponentially. Gone will be the need to “stop everything and train someone,” saving your institution’s knowledge and propelling organizational effectiveness.
As companies become global and employees shift from traditional working hours to working remotely, the need for software tools that encourage communication and collaboration intensifies. Texting a whole workgroup can have big downsides. Companies are finding that leveraging IM technology from #Slack, #Confluence, Basecamp, #Workboard, or #Asana allows your team to flawlessly kick off a project, hire a new employee, deploy some code, review a sales contract, finalize next year’s budget, measure an A/B test, plan your next office opening, and more, transforming the way you get things done.
Along with the rise of awareness about the impacts of stress on our bodies, comes apps focused on health and wellness that are taking off. Mindfulness and meditation, while it may not be embraced by everyone, is taking our cell phones by storm through the app #Headspace with 3, 5 or 10-minute meditations on the go. Keep your teams well and at work by using tools that literally manage wellness, work/life balance, and overall health, such as #AmWell or #MDLive, your employees can stay productive and skip the waiting room by connecting with board-certified doctors 24 hours a day using their phone, tablet, or computer. #Heal enables your sick employee to request a physician to schedule an in-house visit, maximizing productivity by setting up a convenient appointment 365 days a year. Insurance company apps like MyCigna, track employee wellness, medical charts, and provide reminders for health check-ups, cutting costs by preventing disease.
In the age of Artificial Intelligence, there are a myriad of ways to maximize productivity while creating loyalty and adding value for your employees. According to Belinda Morris, Peoplescape’s President and Founder, “As we have seen in the last half-decade of technology leaps, there are no limits to what’s possible – just imagine!”.
