Want to Communicate Better With Your Employees? Join us at PRSA Connect ‘14

Many companies are faced with similar challenges when it comes to communicating with their most important audience – their employees. As employees are increasingly dispersed and not beholden to a desk, internal communications professionals struggle to keep employees connected. There are often many conversations taking place about how employers can better engage with their employees but never much action. It’s time for a change. At PRSA’s Connect ’14 conference, taking place in Chicago on May 20 and 21, communicators will learn how to take these thoughts and ideals and execute them among businesses, improving companies from the inside out.

PRSA Connect is a two-day event which features power networking with colleagues, as well as targeted programming that responds to the latest internal communications challenges and opportunities. theEMPLOYEEapp is proud to be part of this event because we know that we will interact with internal communications professionals who are truly looking to improve employee communications and engagement.

For those unfamiliar, theEMPLOYEEapp is a native app platform that securely integrates with an organization’s active employee database and allows companies to push important company information and content (documents, audio and video) to their employees. In only a month, a company can have its own branded employee app available for iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices and can be incorporated into a bring your own device (BYOD) program.

There is still time to sign up for Connect ’14. You can register online on the PRSA site and join us for an educational and exciting few days in Chicago! While you’re there be sure to stop by theEMPLOYEEapp table to experience our platform and to discuss your internal communications strategy. Tweet us @theCOMMSapp to set up a time to meet. We hope to see you there!

The Challenge Facing Internal Communications and the Mobile Employee App Solution

Since we launched theCOMMSapp at the PRSA International Conference in October, I have had the opportunity to speak with and demonstrate our platform to dozens of internal communications professionals in small, medium and enterprise sized organizations.  What has struck me as very interesting is the fact that they all seem to have the same challenge – ensuring that they are able to get important content and information into the hands of all employees within their organizations at the same time.

For many companies, their employees are not necessarily sitting at a desk tied to a desktop computer.  Rather, they are on the road, in warehouses or working in the field.  Many companies we spoke with have corporate intranets; but as we learned, unless they are accessible from a hard-lined computer, they are not easy to access.  And, the troubles compound when attempting to access the intranet via a browser on a mobile device.

In a recent article, Mobile Enterprise got it right in acknowledging this challenge and praising theCOMMSapp for developing a turn-key and cost effective native app solution to communicate with employees.  Think about the following – how nice would it be to be able broadcast an alert to an entire workforce in a matter of seconds to address important company or industry news (no matter where an employee is located in the world); or for a sales force to have all of their presentations and materials in their pocket on their iPhone or Android device rather than having to lug a file cabinet cross-country.

My professional background is in communications.  I am relatively new to the technology world.  However, one of the things that I have quickly learned is that in techno-speak, the words “no” or “can’t” do not exist.   A mobile employee app solution for what once was considered impossible is now available.
