So how can you strengthen company culture to reap some of these amazing benefits?

Enter digital tools.

4 Digital Tools to Kick Your Culture Up a Notch

One of the easiest ways to start improving your company culture today is to start using digital tools that allow your employees to communicate effectively, track milestones, stay healthy, earn rewards, and have fun!

Let’s take a look at a few tools that can help do just that.

1. Limeade

Limeade is “an engagement company that inspires commitment by elevating culture.” They do this by aiming to improve well-being through happy, healthy, and high-performing workforces. Not only does their solution focus on the individual employee, but on the company and cultural ecosystem as a whole.

Their engagement platform allows users to earn points by completing objectives, like biking to work, eating a healthy snack, joining a wellness team, and more. These points can then be used to earn rewards, and others can recognize their colleagues for achievements.

2. Tango Card

Tango Card provides companies with bulk, one-off, or automated deliveries of e-Gift cards, donations, and prepaid rewards. These can be tied to marketing, customer loyalty, referral, health and wellness, or sales goals that are predetermined by the company.

Tango Card also makes it easy on the companies that implement their system, automatically sending out up to thousands of rewards at once and eliminating the need to restock physical gift cards and other rewards.

3. talkspirit

talkspirit is a branded enterprise social network solution that improves and enhances the way your company communicates. It allows employees across multiple teams, departments, and office locations to communicate via searchable, topic-focused threads.

What’s more, talkSpirit allows each team member to have his or her own personalized newsfeed, meaning only the conversations, activities, and information most relevant to the user are shown. This reduces unnecessary noise, streamlines communication, and makes for happier, less stressed employees.

4. Picnic

Picnic is a gamification solution that uses fun and playful community engagement to drive loyalty, revenue, and growth. The Picnic Baskit is their “gamified engagement, loyalty and contesting package” that engages employees while providing them with recognition and rewards.

Use their campaign manager to easily configure and operate campaigns, and check out their reporting modules to learn more about engagement psychographics, including what’s motivating your employees and what isn’t.

Conclusion

Digital tools like these make employees feel more invested in their respective companies. They’re not at work to simply punch-in and punch-out, they’re there to build community, improve their well-being, and be rewarded for doing so!

It’s a small start to improving overall company culture, but implementing these tools is a relatively inexpensive way to reap big rewards, including happier, healthier employees, increased productivity, and a cushier bottom line.
