Employees who feel valued and appreciated by their leaders are infinitely more likely to go above and beyond for the company and hold themselves accountable for their part of a project, we all know that by now. And most importantly, they will be happier in their roles. If leaders disregard the importance of connecting with employees, they lose the benefit of a dedicated, long-term team!
Some find it difficult to personally connect with employees while still maintaining a position of authority, but the trick is to simply show them you care. You can get in touch with what you appreciate from your coworkers at work. While every employee has different needs for appreciation, your own needs can serve you well as a starting point.
And guess what’s the best way to do this? Have an internal communication platform that can help you reach everybody and show them how much you appreciate their work!
We’ve collected here you seven ways to show how Beem can help you in this process below:
Understand your employees/coworkers interests.
What’s your employees’ passion? What content do they like to read about? How much do they like to participate in company events? On Beem platform, you can structure your company content the way you want and change it easily if you see employees are not engaged! This way, you’ll be able t0 get what they’re more engaged about and keep them interested in what’s going on in and around the company.
Praise something your employee has done well.
Identify the specific actions that you found admirable. Share on your Beem app some content related to this: it will feel sincere since you took the time to spell out details—not just, “You did a good job.”! You can also emphasize the actions that you’d like to see the employee do more often and everybody benefits when people experience a clear direction.
Stimulate them with competition and polls
In-app games are fun, but when they are job-related they can be even more interesting. Think about it: wouldn’t you be happy to participate in a competition organized by your company and be able to win amazing prizes along with your colleagues? You’ll be able to do this on Beem and from our experience, our current clients’ employees have loved this!
Offer staff members an easy way to read corporate content.
Those employees who do not have a company email can be really hard to reach and can feel disengaged because of this. By sharing on your company app every corporate material and enabling them to check on it straight away on their phone will help them feel part of the organization and deliver better results.
Do things that set you apart.
Yes, English is the language of the world, but not everybody speaks it. And you know what? Sometimes people just want to read something about your company in their mother-tongue language! To help every employee on this matter, we’ve implemented a feature that live-translates every article in many of the most-spoken languages. No-one is left behind!
Finally, provide opportunity.
Before your employees will believe in or care about, the long-term vision of the company, its culture, or its success, they need to feel that you see each of them as a person — not just an “employee” to execute your to-do list. They need to feel that their leader — and the company — is invested in them. Once you show your team how much you value them, there’s nothing they won’t strive to accomplish. Stretch your imagination. There are hundreds of other employee and coworker appreciation ideas just waiting for you and Beem can help you find them!
