Workplace digital signage: 5 ways to enhance culture

Digital Signage Tips

Lachlan Ross | July 5, 2021

Open and clear communication is the key to any company’s success. Driven by technology, much of this back and forth has jumped over to emails, social media, and third-party apps like Asana and Slack.

But when faced with a screen full of emails, it can be a little disheartening and isolating for many employees.

By using digital signage as another link in your communication toolset, there’s plenty of opportunities to bring staff together and enhance workplace culture.

Here’s how.

Workplace digital signage can promote your company values

Want to remind everybody of why they’re proud of their workplace?

With well placed digital signage in the office space, employees can always have a clear sight of the values and ethos that your business is built upon. It’s a great way to reinforce the core principles of your company and the many benefits you provide to your customers.

And for businesses who are trying to build a socially responsible workplace, digital signage goes a long way to keeping staff informed of how they – and the organisation – are making a difference.

Workplace digital signage can highlight top performers and milestones

A little bit of recognition can go a long way.

One of the most effective ways to boost employee performance is praise from up top. Digital signage is an easy way to highlight those who are putting in the work and getting the results. You can effortlessly display employee of the month, individual achievements or team success. 

On top of this, you can also showcase employee milestones, anniversaries and birthdays – bringing everyone together to celebrate their amazing colleagues.

Communicate internal activities and events

“Sorry, I must’ve missed that email.”

Who hasn’t forgotten an important meeting or team event because of an overly full inbox?

With digital signage, you can strengthen your internal communications strategy and ensure that all employees know what’s on and when. It helps maintain office consistency and keeps everybody in the know. 

Here are a few bits of information you can share with your employees:

  • Meeting room schedules
  • Important dates and deadlines
  • Calendar and holidays
  • Conferences and speakers
  • Upcoming team events

Workplace digital signage can highlight COVID safety protocols

On-site workplaces have had to adapt quickly and thoroughly over the last 18 months. With COVID information changing on an hourly basis, it seemed almost impossible at times to keep employees and visitors up to date on news and protocols.

Using digital signage like our Mandoe’s Digital Signage solution, companies can now easily design and upload posters with COVID tips and reminders to several locations at once. It’s also an easy way to have QR codes displayed when following government mandates. This is particularly effective when information needs to be accessible for both desk and non-desk workers, like those who work in warehouses, clinics and supermarkets.

Here are some protocols you can include on your signage:

  • Properly wash your hands
  • Use disposable gloves
  • Use elbow for coughs and sneezes
  • Disinfect shared spaces
  • Stay at home reminders

Regular communication, messages from executive team

Meeting challenges head on becomes much more difficult when messaging is lost in translation – or worse – it doesn’t get there at all.

Communicating important strategies and changes in workplace culture are a vital part of any successful business. And by using digital signage to announce new company initiatives, you’ll find more employees are up to speed and ready to jump on board when the time comes.

Boost your internal communications today

There’s no doubt, companies have recently had to adapt to a new way of operating. With the increase in employees working from home, and the uncertainty of how they will adjust once back in the office, getting on the front foot will be key to fostering a stronger workplace culture.
