Building Solid Construction Industry Communication with an Employee App
Achieving Zero Accidents Is Job #1 for Internal Communications
In the construction industry, employee safety is a top priority. But with so many workers either off-site and far from their home base, or between satellite offices and construction sites, efficient communication can be a challenge. With a branded employee app you can immediately provide all of your employees with targeted information, practical HR tools and services, and important safety updates. Wherever they are and whenever they need it.
Connect your people no matter where they are and what they're doing
In the construction industry, where your employees work, what they do, and what they need all vary. And for international companies, even languages and security regulations can differ. With an employee app, communications and HR departments can reach their many non-desk workers and target content to meet their specific needs.
Generate real dialogue, interaction, and transparency
Get your employees talking and find out what they really care about. With surveys, feedback channels, and the ability to comment, like, and share, an app for mobile internal communication generates dialogues throughout an organization.
Increase speed, reach, and relevance
When it comes to sharing news, training, and safety procedures in the construction industry, messages must be communicated promptly and reliably. With push notifications, acknowledgement functions, and targeted content, an app helps companies in their efforts to achieve flawless information distribution.
