The evolution of today’s workforce demands a communication solution that connects employees to the information they want—when, how, and where they want it. The EmployeeChannel app offers unprecedented access to personal and professional information, acts as a constant companion, and is there at an employee’s moment of need. The app provides a powerful self-service tool to make it easier and faster for employees to get the answers they need.
The intuitive experience of a consumer app to guarantee instant use and value
The immediacy, convenience, and responsiveness of self-service
Virtual, real-time, and personalized communications that create high-touch interactions throughout the employee lifecycle
The EmployeeChannel app meets employee expectations for how a mobile app should work, reducing the learning curve and ensuring immediate value. Download it from the App Store or Google Play. That’s it; it’s ready to use. Employees stay organized and informed with a communications timeline, a configurable dashboard featuring personalized information, an interactive search portal, in-app messaging with internal and external experts, and much more.
The EmployeeChannel app provides anytime, anywhere access to internal communications, organizational information such as employee directories, or personal information regardless of location, time, or whether an employee has corporate email or not. For the majority of frequently asked questions, the app provides an immediate answer. The app can also provide a direct link to other sources or provide instructions that navigate employees to other sites where answers can be found. When an employee wants more information than the app provides or when they want to speak to an internal or external expert, they can send a request from within the app via a call, email, or ‘in app’ messaging.
The EmployeeChannel app's self-service experience allows employees to engage in virtual conversations with the organization, receiving organization-specific or employee-specific responses to important questions. For example, an employee can use the app’s search functionality to enter the word “tuition,” and the app will provide the organization’s tuition reimbursement policy. They could also enter a general term, such as “deductible,” and receive a general response regarding medical plan deductibles or a personalized response that contains the employee’s personal medical plan deductible based upon their plan selection and plan details.
