In today’s digital business environment, savvy companies are conflicted about what makes employees productive. Google gives its employees a luxurious work experience including free buffet meals, gym access, and shuttles to and from work; all perks designed to keep employees happily in the office. Facebook and Twitter follow a similar model to Google.
Other companies such as Automattic, GitHub, and Mozilla have decided that allowing employees to work from home is the best gift they can give. All three companies have taken a distributed approach, meaning the majority of employees work remotely. In either office situation communication with and between employees is a corporate priority that has significant impact on productivity and employee engagement.
Advantages of digital communication in office environments
Collaborative software, videoconferencing, and web-based tools have removed barriers to telecommuting. One recent report by Global Workforce Analytics and FlexJobs found telecommuting by employees has grown by 159% since 2005. The challenge for business leaders is to ensure that remote employees are both productive and engaged.
It is important that organizations don’t treat remote employees as, “out of sight, out of mind!” All employees either in the office or remote need access to the right communications tools to do their jobs effectively and efficiently. Omnivex provides a digital communications software platform that organizations can use to create first-class engagement for distributed employees. It helps organizations optimize employee productivity, leading to lower costs and increased revenue.
