Why not empower your employees with mobile apps that provide tips and reminders (to drink water, to move, to breathe for 3 minutes, etc) for a healthier and less stressful working day?

Leveraging technology to reduce daily stress, improve work-life balance, support a healthier life and provide inhouse assistance can tremendously increase employee satisfaction. Here are four opportunities.

Chatbots

Chatbots are becoming an increasingly important part of the digital customer service strategy. If you already use internal messaging services in your company, you may start with analyzing the main areas your employees seek assistance. If you can support your employees in making things easier and less time-consuming for them (e.g. organizing a meeting, booking a flight, ordering food to your desk), they will internalize the benefits of your best-in-class customer service strategy.

Mobile Stress-Relievers

Mobile devices are one of the key stress drivers for each of us. Why not empower your employees with mobile apps that provide tips and reminders (to drink water, to move, to breathe for 3 minutes, etc) for a healthier and less stressful working day?


User Experience

We invest in our digital platforms to provide meaningful and personally relevant experiences for our customers. However most companies do not prioritize internal digital platforms and the experiences provided by internal channels. Tech-savvy Gen Y and Gen Z would love it! How can your employees believe your digital experience strategy if they cannot use it in their day to day work?

Productivity Tools

To reduce the number of e-mails in a working day is a key issue to secure work-life balance. Each day, more and more companies are switching to teamwork messaging productivity tools. It is an essential part of many startups to follow-up teams and projects. I have met many people from start-ups who have quit company e-mail and are now only using these teamwork productivity apps.
