3 Ways to Rethink Staff Engagement with Interactive Technology
Staff engagement was once just a good-to-have objective and used to involve strategies to make the employees "feel an emotional bond" around special occasions and conventional team-building events. The pandemic is forcing establishments to throw away playbooks that they had become relaxed with. Staff engagement
is now a mission-critical approach, which can make or break the development story of the business in both, short and long term.
Before the pandemic, most workers were working in typically the same office building. The projects they worked on and the individuals they interacted with, would more or less outline the culture. Managers and leaders could focus on a few, well-defined levers of inspiration to improve performance.

In the new normal, everybody is feeling the need to clinch and adapt to hybrid work. From the viewpoint of the leadership, they need to figure out the optimal employee engagement plan that serves the needs of workers whose workspaces and schedules can differ extensively. Though the test is daunting, fast-evolving interactive technology is here to help.
Here are 3 ways to rethink personal engagement that inspires and aligns everybody towards a mutual goal:
- Establish regular virtual town halls: Interactive technology allows you to offer townhalls, which stir a sense of community among your personnel. A transparent, “all-hands” dialog format enables them to be heard. Virtual town halls can be used to give context to business goals and inspire responsibility and ownership.
- Go beyond old-style sales kick-offs (SKOs): Imagine a sales kickoff that wasn’t enthusiasm squeezed into a 3-day trip, but an evergreen team association with more impactful training and inspiration. A virtual SKO format allows you to feature outside speakers, and top sales leaders to show that you are investing in their development.
- Repeat and experiment by learning from statistics: With every event, you have the aptitude to derive insights from a sea of figures to track employees’ engagement stages. What they looked at, who they spoke to and what led to better participation. With such understandings, you can then personalize future events for greater influence.
