Cutting Company Costs With Employee Notifications
Posted by Angela R. in Staffing / Employees on July 28, 2014
It makes no difference the size of your company, big or small you need a way to stay connected to your employees. Every industry imaginable from restaurants to manufacturing plants can benefit from a reliable method of keeping employees informed. Consistent communication is the cornerstone to building strong employee relationships.
All businesses rely on communication to operate. Employees need to be informed of key changes in procedures, shift adjustments, and closings in the event of an emergency. A business owner can cut his costs while at the same time improving his employee communications by signing up with a mass notification service.
Every successful business man or woman will tell you that time is money, and when you need to relay an important message to a large group of employees it can take time. Looking for phone numbers or planning meetings wastes precious resources that could be better spent building your business. When you use DialMyCalls to relay those messages, the time you spend talking to one employee will be the same as talking to hundreds or thousands.
In a corporate environment where every penny must be accounted for, changes in policy and employee procedures are common. A smart executive recognizes the labor costs involved in holding a departmental or company meeting to go over a policy that could easily be outlined in a text message. DialMyCalls makes this easy for you and will even track the calls/texts it makes so you can be sure everyone in your employee calling list has been notified.
Do you need some feedback from your branches in other towns? Use the polling feature to ask the right questions to as many employees as you need and get updated on the responses through your online broadcast report. With this feature there is no need to waste valuable time and resources traveling from location to location.
You can also use an employee notification service to help cover shifts when you are short handed. Your contact list can be broken down into groups, allowing you to contact only those employees in the relevant department and ask if anyone is available. This is an easier solution to a shortage of hands then calling employees one by one when you are looking for help.
In the event of an emergency or a closing due to inclement weather, one 30 second phone call is all you need to alert every employee in your contact list. There is no need to worry that your workers will be showing up at a closed office during a major snow storm again. Plus once you are ready to re-open, a quick message will have them all ready to clock back in as soon as you re-open the doors.
In these days of economic uncertainty, companies need to be cutting down on costs where ever possible. Streamlining your communication processes and eliminating costly meetings will not only gain you more time, it will trim your labor expenses. This allows you and your business to see more of a profit while not sacrificing the important communication that it needs to thrive.
