You can’t go to a news site today and miss the articles about the current state of employment. Employers are having a really hard time enticing workers back to work. Everyone seems short staffed, employers are offering higher wages, hiring bonuses, and other concessions. People are just not sold on the idea of going back to work. You’ll also read about states discontinuing the extra unemployment payments that came with Covid unemployment. Which means you’ll have people who, even though they don’t want to work, will need to. Unemployment won’t be enough, and workers should get back into jobs.
These two macro economic factors may have an impact on your business. Whether that means you will hopefully start to find new talent, or your current talent will have some new needs you need to meet, things will likely be different. And that’s where Snowfly comes in.
Snowfly is an employee incentives and rewards system. We have peer and manager recognition features. We have gamification, helping increase usage and engagement. A year and a half ago these were great ways to enhance your work environment. We think that, as workers come back, they’ll want… they’ll demand a different workplace. They’ll want a better workplace.
I was talking to a senior executive recently who was saying how impactful recognition is. When someone does something well, and is recognized by the organization and peers, they feel better about their work. They like coming to work! They want to do more things that will give them recognition! Recognition is one of the great workplace motivators, and it’s something we make really easy. It’s not completely automated because real recognition comes from humans. Your boss saying you did a great job, with some details about what you did, is really powerful. When your colleagues can read those kind words, and then heap on their praise, you feel like a million bucks.
Combine the power and results of employee recognition with a gamification incentives system and you now have something very special. Your employees feel rewarded by peers and the boss, and they get rewards in their pocket. Don’t you think this creates a work environment that your employees will brag about? Don’t you think they’ll be happier about coming to work?
Bragging, happy employees leads to increases in performance, decreases in time off, increases in retention, decreases in bad mouthing your organization. All kinds of good things happen when you create this awesome and fun work environment.
And it’s easy… really easy to do with Snowfly.
We’d love to help you get started. We’d love to help influence your work culture, and give people a reason to come do a great job at your office (or at their home… we work fine with remote workers). We want your brand to stand out. It will need to, since the next few months will likely see a very difficult hiring period while companies do anything they can to find new talent. Using Snowfly, you’ll find your employees spreading the word, enhancing and sharing your company brand, and keep employees longer. After all the other flashy stuff wears off, the power of recognition for a job well done and easy-to-earn and easy-to-redeem prizes will continue to impact your entire organization.
