HR heroes! Employee engagement is a hot topic in 2024. With the remote and hybrid work revolution, keeping everyone connected and motivated can feel like navigating a digital maze.

But fear not, Employee Engagement Platforms (EXPs) are here!

Your secret weapons for fostering communication, collaboration, and a work environment even for your remote employees.

January 2021 Whats new in Sharepoint and Teams

Can They Be the Answer? Let Us Investigate.

EXPs are social butterflies. Alongside SharePoint, platforms such as Microsoft Viva Engaged facilitate knowledge sharing, team discussions, and virtual water cooler moments through forums, photo galleries, and internal news feeds. Empowering your employees to share, feel heard and build meaningful connections.

“Organisations with highly engaged employees have 23% greater profitability” (Microsoft)

Transparency is key, and EXPs empowered it. They provide dedicated spaces for company news and announcements, keeping everyone in the loop and fostering trust with a shared sense of clarity. Cloud based intranets like SharePoint are central hubs for your company’s policies, documents, and resources. Think of it as a treasure trove of information, accessible to everyone, 24/7. No more confusion, no more inefficiency – just knowledge at everyone’s fingertips.

But EXPs go beyond being an easy-to-use document library. Plus, platforms like Microsoft Viva Engage break down communication and information silos, encouraging two-way conversations beyond the usual top-down announcements. Polls, surveys, and suggestion boxes, empower employees to share their voices and be heard, leading to a more responsive and inclusive work environment.

But Wait, There’s More.

EXPs are multi-talented, they can:

Streamline onboarding

Centralised training materials, mentorship programs, and peer introductions, making new recruits feel welcomed and integrated faster. Having a strong onboarding process can reduce turnover and create a happy and engaged workforce generating 2.5X more revenue compared to competitors with low engagement (ADP).

“A healthy work environment is one in which workers and managers collaborate in a process of continuous improvement to promote and protect the health, safety, and well-being of workers and the sustainability of the work environment “ (WHO)
