Today’s workforce isn’t typically located in a single office, in one timezone or even on one continent. Instead, employees work remotely, are in different offices across the globe or are on the road every day.
Connecting your employees to one another, and to your company’s purpose, mission and values, is more crucial than ever before – especially if you want to stand out as a top employer in your industry.
This was the case for one organization in particular, Lime Energy, a forward-thinking organization in the energy efficiency industry. Its mission is to “empower small businesses, energize communities and advance clean energy.”
Lime Energy needed to connect its 300 employees, spread out across five offices in the U.S. – with about one-third of employees on the road each day – in order to move the business forward and increase employee satisfaction levels.
The organization invested in values-based employee recognition and communication tools that connect an on-the-go workforce from any location, at any time.
Examples of Lime Energy's value-based eCards.
The new employee experience platform, named Bright Stars, helps fuel connectivity in the workplace. Employees can send one another values-based eCards, including “Passionate,” “Customer Focused” and “Adaptable,” helping to reinforce company values, connect employees to the overall mission and recognize desirable behaviors.
Plus, managers are able to send awards to those who have exceeded the expectations of their role and had a significant impact on the company and those around them.
Both the eCards and awards live on a social recognition wall – helping to increase visibility, improve relationships and connect all employees – all available on any device, at any time through the Connect+ app.
