WRITTEN BY: Nate Rubin, 03-01-2020
Businesses these days are constantly looking for ways to foster a positive workplace culture because—put simply—it makes a world of difference. It leads to happier and more productive workers, more effective workplace communication and engagement, and better employee retention rates.
The problem is that there’s no clear formula for building and maintaining a positive workplace culture. This leads many companies on a wild goose chase for ways to generate positive vibes in their building—usually to no avail.
Luckily though, technology is changing the ways that companies can create positive workplace environments. In short, digital signage is making it a whole lot easier for businesses to improve their workplace culture so everyone involved stays in good spirits.
What is digital signage?
Digital signage is the use of screens and other digital displays to deploy valuable messaging in strategic areas. It is used across nearly every industry including healthcare, hospitality, food and beverage, corporate, education, and more.
Workplace digital signage is primarily used to send employee communications in order to achieve a variety of goals.
Benefits of workplace digital signage
As we alluded to before, promoting a positive workplace culture leads to numerous can’t-miss benefits for companies:
- Increased productivity
- Improved internal communications
- Better employee retention
- Higher workplace engagement
How? Well, utilizing digital signage displays in your company’s offices can allow you to communicate with employees more effectively. Unlike other forms of internal communications, digital signage isn’t intrusive, and thanks to its flashy nature, isn’t easily ignored.
Put simply, you’ll be much better off creating visually appealing digital signage content that draws the eyes of your employees to the information they need rather than sending them a barrage of annoying emails.
Digital signage benefits statistics speak for themselves.
Using digital signage to create a positive workplace culture
When it comes to creating a positive workplace culture with digital signage, content that shows your employees how much you value all of their hard work is the top priority.
In addition to that though, effective workplace digital signage promotes healthy and ethical workplace habits, recognizes the value of diversity, encourages teamwork and collaboration, and generally makes workers feel more involved in the goals of the company.
That way, your employees will always know their contributions are valued and will feel more invested and engaged in your company’s overall success. At the end of the day, happy workers are better workers.
