Downloaded onto a smartphone or tablet, the new app has been designed for organisations with a scattered workforce such as multi-site builders merchants, building materials suppliers or those with teams working off-site.
The App can be customized to suit the requirements of individual companies, with modular elements designed to streamline communications, motivate teams, create a winning culture and retain staff.
By making essential HR information visible at all times, including the company’s Employee Handbook, Policy & Procedures and the employee’s Contract, the Federation says the app reduces the time HR staff spend on dealing with basic enquiries.
It can also be configured to push notifications through to each user, so important information is instantly available.
The BMF says one of the app’s big advantages is that it enables rapid two-way communication between an organisation and its employees, with the app’s survey tool making it simple to respond on any given subject.
Other functions, such as the Employee of the Month, are designed encourage and thank people for a job well done, and staff members can also interact with each other via the app.
John Porter, MD of Crosby Associates, said: “The Employee Engage App provides a new way of thinking and working for many HR functions. Everyone who sees it loves it, because it is not a one-size fits all approach. The app can be customised to include the modules that suit the needs of different organisations, and the look and feel can also reflect the company brand. It is also simple to update and include new features and content at a later date.”
