You may think of technology as cold, impersonal, the kind of thing to boost bottom-line productivity and efficiency perhaps, but hardly an aid for that most human of things – company culture.
Yet, the right technology – tactically deployed – can indeed help to build and maintain the right culture at your company.
It’s not a case of trying to replace the distinctly human element of culture, but instead of incorporating technologies that have been carefully chosen to alleviate day-to-day pressures on your workers and assist your firm’s drive towards its broader goals.
Here are a few examples of what we mean.
In-house recruitment software
The most appropriate in-house recruitment software, supplied by experts in the field like Webrecruit, can do so much to support the development of the right company culture, including when it is used to develop talent pools and create bespoke reports.
Whatever technologies your firm uses for both recruitment and onboarding, when you take on a new staff member, they are not automatically experts in exactly how your company does business.
In recent years, Learning Management Systems (LMSs) have arisen to facilitate everything from general onboarding to the development of individual skills. Such technologies enable both new and existing employees to develop the full potential of abilities that may presently be going unnoticed or underutilised.
Maintaining open lines of communication
In a working landscape in which the likes of irregular contractors and remote workers are becoming increasingly normalised, the challenge of fostering the most collegial atmosphere is becoming an ever-greater one.
This is precisely where such dynamic communication and collaboration platforms as Slack and Google’s G Suite are becoming invaluable for minimising the effects of physical distance, which has long been one of the greatest strengths of technology.
Such solutions, for relatively little investment, do much to enable smoother cooperation between employees with complementary skill-sets and interaction across various departments, locations and areas of expertise.
Technology can be central to bringing people together
Ultimately, businesses will always be about their people. It is precisely this that serves to highlight how invaluable the most suitable technology can be in enabling everyone who makes up a company’s workforce to communicate more easily and efficiently.
