How do we keep staff engaged when lockdowns, home schooling, & working from home have put all our lives are under relentless pressure? Many businesses in Australia are struggling with how to maintain work relationships & engage staff when they are stuck in an enduring pandemic.
Finding an easy communication method to maintain employee relationships & show empathy is key. Digital MicroGifts are one way Business’s have found to keep spirits up. MicroGifts are being used to grow relationships & engage with staff. Conn3cted a leading Sydney IT development company with around 20 staff who normally work in a single office have been using MicroGifts to keep staff enthused & motivated while communicating their ongoing need for teamwork.
“We are a technology company and have been using MicroGifts to send digital care packages to our staff to let them know they are valued and that we care for them.” said Glenn Murray, the Co-Founder and CTO of Conn3cted.”The response from our team has been fantastic, they love that we can reach out to them and share a little in such a frustrating time”
MicroGifts Co-Founder Nick Roche explains that by humanising the message, you can engage with your employees, so they feel less isolated & victimised by something out of their control.
“We have sent all our clients MicroGifts emphasising to “Stay Safe” with a $7 gift paying for their coffees, anytime we hear the lockdowns are extended.” Roche explains “It is a small gesture to reinforce how important our relationship with our clients is to us. Given our gifts accumulate in the Apple or Google pay wallet the balance builds, so sending $7 in not seen as cheap or inconvenient, but as a building block in an ongoing relationship. The feedback has been tremendous & incredibly personal”
