It was only a few years ago that you were expected to travel to work, put in your hours, and drive back home forgetting about the office until the next morning. That has all changed now and the era of the 9 to 5 job is now over thanks to laptops, smartphones and tablets. Wherever you can get an Internet connection, you can send emails, file reports, hold meetings, write proposals and complete practically all of your tasks away from the office. As a result, telecommuting and flexible working is on the rise, and more and more work is completed via our mobile devices. A trend of “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) is also emerging meaning that employees have the latest gadgets, phones and tablets to consume torrents of delicious content at work or on the move.
The rewards and benefits industry has had to respond to these rapid changes over the last couple of years and 2013 will see an even faster transition to mobile working than ever before. Employees are getting used to fast, on demand information in their private lives and should expect no less when working.
So what does that mean to your business? It’s simple; employees that are motivated tend to go the extra mile and in turn provide better experiences for customers. They approach their job with energy, productivity and creative enthusiasm and remain with your company for longer. The energy created by these highly motivated employees will rub off onto customers and will create loyal passionate advocates of your brand. They will not only buy more, but also tell colleagues, friends and family about their fantastic experiences.
There are a number of key factors that are required to deliver outstanding engagement and performance levels in the workplace. Amongst these, and growing in importance, is availability of information. incentivesmart's suite of reward and benefits solutions not only offer great value, but critically, put rewards at employee fingertips; no matter whether they are in the office, on the train or on the beach.
