You Need an Employee Management Platform – Not Just an App

Janine Townsend

An employee management platform should offer much more than just a communication tool or be just another app that never gets used – it needs to be useful and provide a range of tools to improve employees’ satisfaction and engagement at work (Read: Employee Satisfaction Forms the Foundation for Employees’ Engagement. Here’s What You Should Know).

“Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.”

– Steve Jobs

A business’ success is reliant on the effort and talent of a team, and as a team grows it becomes increasingly important to ensure that everyone remains accounted for. Here, we aren’t just talking about being physically present, but mentally and emotionally too. When you show your employees that their voices are being heard and their work is being recognized, and you give them the requisite tools to work autonomously while still offering support and guidance when necessary, you’re turning them into brand ambassadors. Technology platforms provide a meaningful way to manage employees in this manner.

An employee management platform vs. an employee management app

An employee management platform typically includes comprehensive management tools, while employee management apps are usually condensed into only the most basic functionalities of an employee management platform, such as internal work chats. Why should you be aware of this distinction? Because employees need more than a standalone app – an employee management platform, such as Ezzely, allows employees to access the tools they need to be effective at work wherever they are, on any device available to them, by empowering managers and employers to support and manage their staff even when they are not in direct personal contact; this is especially effective for teams that work remotely or companies that have staff based in different regions.
