There are some companies out there (I won’t name names) who try to take the easy way out when it comes to employee engagement by applying a “one size fits all” approach to their team. But with a workforce that’s more mobile than ever (in a world where 83% of non-desk employees don’t have access to company email), how can you possibly meet everyone’s needs when some employees aren’t even under the same roof?
At Arbor Homes, Indiana’s largest home builder, a distributed workforce is an everyday reality. With three distinct business functions (in-office, field sales, and construction), meeting employees where they are with the information they need to better do their jobs and giving them a voice to feel heard could be a daily struggle. But using polling functionality through their internal app, they can send messages and get instant, actionable feedback from employees no matter where they are.
“Emplify allows our company to get instant feedback about topics we’re interested in without having to wait. We can make decisions based on that feedback.”
– Ben Watkins
Director of Marketing and Research
At the same time, employees can feel more comfortable giving their feedback knowing their answers are confidential, unlike in town halls or in-person meetings where attendees are more guarded about sharing their true opinions.
