As a business owner or manager, it’s your job to make sure that you keep your organization running efficiently with productive employees that meet goals. The pressure involved in keeping up efficiency and productivity is significant, though. You’ve taken steps that you believe are improving company processes, but you’re not sure which technologies are actually helping your employees and company culture and which are actually making things worse. Here’s a harsh reality: 42% of employees in the United States are unhappy with their provided technology. If you’re having a rough time balancing technology and employee happiness, here are a few ways to tell if your technology is ruining your company culture:
Technology was made to improve the lives of your employees and boost the bottom line of your organization. It should be used for good, but not to manipulate and overwork your employees. When you’re adding in too many pieces of software, not investing in the right internet and micromanaging already overworked employees with your technology, it breeds anger, disengagement and stress; all of which have been shown to hamper productivity and company efficiency. As you formulate your growth plans, account for how you’ll use technology for good to improve the user experience and help them deliver more efficiently on your behalf. You won’t be sorry.
