Blink is an employee engagement app that will allow your warehouse team, drivers and maintenance crew to stay just as in the loop on key company information as your office staff. Think instant employee updates via smartphone, an interactive social media-style employee experience, and easy access to key company info - what’s not to love?
The Blink employee engagement app works as a mobile intranet...and so much more. Designed as a familiar social media-type feed, your logistics workforce can instantly access, share and engage with company updates. This could be anything from important policy information, route updates and warehouse safety guidelines to that all-important Christmas party announcement.
Deskless workers often feel left out when it comes to receiving company updates. And who can blame them, when most internal comms plans center office-based workforces at the expense of others?
The Blink employee engagement app is perfect for logistics companies looking for a solution that will engage their entire workforce - from your drivers and your warehouse team to your IT department. Effective communication means reaching your workers where they are, whether that means at home, on the warehouse floor, or out on the road.
Are you bored of putting all that effort into a sprawling system of noticeboards, creaky old desktop intranets, email newsletters, break room TV screens, and attachments on pay stubs...only to find that the message still didn’t get through?
Of course you are. It’s a pain. It’s inefficient. It eats up your day and disrupts the workflows of your employees as they struggle to remember which information is contained where. Blink streamlines all your internal comms into one easily-accessible channel, saving both your HR team and your wider workforce valuable man-hours.
Digitize previously paper-based processes like route risk assessments, warehouse health and safety guidelines and time-off requests.
Add route and shift information to the Hub so employees arrive at work fully clued-up, rather than having to wait for a briefing.
Give workers access to user manuals so engineers that visit faulty vehicles have the documents they need to fix issues in the palms of their hands.
Share shift schedules, assignment changes and shipment arrival times using Blink’s instant messaging system.
Empower workers to file on-site accident reports on-site, package defect reports on delivery, and outage updates en route for more accurate reporting.
Engage your employees so that they feel happier and more productive, providing great customer service and delivering packages on time.
Logistics workforces tend to be disengaged as a default. This is because engagement is difficult when the company is spread across different locations and workspaces, often with no direct contact with senior management.
Too many logistics companies take this as a given, and accept the inevitable ‘churn and burn’ approach to workforce management that comes with it. This is expensive and, more importantly, detrimental to your employees’ health and happiness.
When your workforce uses the Blink app, they feel like part of your team. Not only does it make reports and HR tasks easier to complete, but it encourages people to see the bigger, company-wide picture. Employees who feel engaged with their company stay longer, are more productive and deliver better customer service - which all has an impact on your bottom line.
In logistics, time is money. You don’t want your employees to spend hours completing basic HR tasks or finding the right risk assessment form - and they don’t want to either. Blink’s employee engagement app and mobile intranet cuts out the bureaucracy, so your workforce can get on with what they do best.
And, as they become more engaged with your company’s overall goals, they’ll become more productive - it’s a win-win scenario.
