Innovative Technology Tools for Company Culture
In the modern-day business environment, technology has become essential for building a strong and positive workplace and culture. Leaders need to leverage these tools to create an inclusive and engaged workforce because when people feel more connected, it helps create a culture that leaves a positive impact on your workforce.
Here are a few examples of technology tools that leaders can use to enhance their company culture:
1. Communication and Collaboration: Microsoft Teams and Zoom are examples of technology tools that provide an opportunity for building relationships, fostering a sense of community, and enhancing connectedness across your company and teams. This is especially important in virtual and hybrid workforces, but all companies and their people will benefit from effective communication and collaboration across all teams, departments, and locations.
2. Learning and Development: LinkedIn Learning is an example of a technology tool that provides an opportunity for a culture of continuous learning with access to a vast array of learning courses and training programs, enabling your talent to enhance their skills, knowledge, and professional growth. Your employees desire a culture of growth, learning, and opportunity and these tools can help you invest in the growth of your current and future leaders and all employees.
3. Culture Surveys and Other Feedback Surveys: Companies are using culture surveys as the number one way to identify specific skills and development opportunities needed to achieve the vision, live the values, and execute strategy. We want to hear from your top-of-the-house leaders about what they believe is needed for current and future executives, but culture surveys help ensure all your employees have a voice, too.
EDA’s Culture 20/20 Survey™ is an example of a culture survey that helps leaders discover cultural insights and needs, track and sustain culture and measure the company’s cultural health. These surveys use a data-driven approach to measure and understand the company’s culture, which can help determine strengths and gaps in culture and leadership capabilities. They also provide a comprehensive view of your company’s overall culture in real-time, enabling leaders to see patterns and trends in your culture over time.
Other feedback surveys (e.g., employee engagement, pulse surveys, exit interviews) aid in identifying talent gaps and opportunities for development. In short, surveys help companies and leadership teams enhance and transform their overall cultural health by providing insights, tools, and resources to create a compelling culture that aligns with the company’s vision, goals, and people. Like the culture surveys, these additional feedback surveys are helpful for identifying needs for improvement, monitoring progress and change over time, and increasing engagement in your company.
