How to keep workmates plugged in to the office and connected with each other.
If your office is more like ‘The Office’ of TV than ‘The Office Of The Future,’ it’s time to turn up your social media game. For the recent Future of Work report, PSFK Labs challenged creative agencies from around the world to generate product and service concepts that leverage the trends identified within the report. Below, find four socially-minded ideas that promise to change how we communicate with co-workers at the office.
Keep staffers smiling with Office Mood-in - an app that permits employees to log how they feel, so potential improvements can be made. That might mean fewer slanderous gossip sessions by the water cooler.
A digitally-delivered notification of a job well done will foster camaraderie between co-workers and enthusiasm for shared project successes. Since we all spend too much time glued to our computer screens, the digital memos are sure to reach the intended recipients and put a smile on their face.
The CultureDNA app will work its magic by collecting data and information from employees to help team members find common interest points. Who knew Jim from Accounting was also a craft beer enthusiast? CultureDNA will help you connect.
Divisions within teams can cause ideas and temperaments to splinter, but WorkforceDNA can eliminate the risk of intra-group fallout by allowing users to check in on their colleagues.
