What Are Industry Best Practices?

Industry best practices are an established set of guidelines and techniques for success within a particular area of business. These tend to change over time, as new ideas emerge and technology and consumer perceptions shift. Teaching employees best practices on an ongoing basis helps create healthy work habits and improves productivity and engagement.

Problem: Niche Ideas That Change Quickly

Solid best practices can be elusive, as they are highly subjective and sometimes niche. Without an easy, wide-reaching way for employees to communicate these types of ideas, a company can lose out on valuable insights, or miss opportunities where new ideas could have prevented things from going stale.
When new employees come on board, it’s important for them to have a way to learn these practices quickly, and also for them to contribute ideas that they took from previous roles. This back and forth is crucial for keeping up with the fast-paced modern business world.

Solution: Easy Sharing With MangoApps

Designated department, group, and project work areas give employees a window into each other’s workloads, and can offer valuable insights by contributing a new perspective.
Group areas are strategically organized and highly searchable, helping onboarding and transferring employees form good habits right away and ensuring a unified work process. You can even designate best practice posts as must-read messages, helping leadership track and manage who has seen the new message.
Employers can even create wide-reaching company posts to share effective best practices with the entire organization. These are transported instantly, meaning there is no lag time or potential for messages to be diluted as they spread by word of mouth. It’s also easy to use the library function to organize this information into efficient guides for employees to find and consume.
We really wanted to gather best practice examples of membership campaigns and fundraising campaigns, and understand when a trust has done something really well or not so well. We needed a platform to share it with everybody so that they didn’t reinvent the wheel. MangoApps is perfect for that because we can share images of door drops and digital marketing campaigns and so on.

How To Create Groups:

    Give your group a name and establish some of its basic details. Provide a description, establish permissions, enable or disable features, and more.
  3. 3
    You’re now ready to add users and get to work. Select the group tools button and then ‘Invite Network Users’ to start adding group members.
