Meeting the needs of today’s workforce

Why the event services sector is investing in employee apps

1

Transforming internal communications

When a workforce is so distributed, on the go and typically split into permanent and casual staff, regular connection and rapid communication is key. There’s a real desire for real-time, targeted comms that will:

  • Get and keep everyone on the same page, bridging the physical gaps and removing the cascade burden from managers and supervisors

  • Overcome the practical challenges around a highly mobile, multi-faceted operation, especially on event/match days

  • Underpin standard operating procedures and emergency response as well as supporting and enabling the individual 24/7

2

Improving employee experience

Organisations want a properly people-oriented tool that has all the capability out of the box to:

  • Make life easier and better everyday with all your communications, information and occupational resources in one ‘go-to’ place

  • Assist and encourage every worker from day one, from pre-boarding new starters, on-demand video training and wellbeing support to benefits, employee awards and thank you cards

  • Offer plenty of ultra-handy self-service options and digital ‘help’ such as epayslips, holiday requests, instant incident reporting

3

Modernising intranets 

No intranet? Or an old desktop-only version? Stadia and arena managers know that mobile has to be front and centre of their distributed and very diverse workforce, allowing them to:

  • Create a common single sign-on platform across mobile app and desktop that delivers the requisite choice and flexibility for every user, from office staff to the facilities team to the event day casuals

  • Leverage familiar social media and consumer app styling to drive adoption and regular usage across all IT literacy levels

  • Re-energise the whole intranet experience with dynamic creative content as well as evergreen resources to maintain its relevance and value

4

Supporting digital transformation

Organisations are always looking at how best to transition from analogue to digital to:

  • Drive greater efficiency and performance while minimising staff churn, accidents, environmental impact and non-compliance

  • Enable and empower every employee regardless of role or situation

  • Be better equipped and more responsive to operational changes, staffing needs or emergency scenarios
