Why we need a new approach to employee experience

Today, employee experience is fragmented, frustrating, and not designed for the new world of work. The situation gets worse for companies with a hybrid workforce. As organizations worldwide adapt to a fundamental shift in how and where we work, here is a summary of the challenges they face.

Problem #1

Difficult to share company-wide news & updates

  • Not all employees have emails
  • Messages get lost among hundreds of other emails
  • No way to embed video or make it visually appealing
  • No way to create engagement (comments, likes)
  • No consolidated view of past news and updates
  • No way to track views, request signatures or acknowledgements
Effectively share news and updates using Posts
Organize company-wide information and resources effectively
Problem #2

Information & company resources are hard to find

  • Company information is spread over multiple tools and systems
  • Content is hard to update so it doesn't get updated
  • No way to track what employees are looking for
  • No automation and governance to ensure periodic reviews
  • No built-in support for multiple languages to support a global employee-base
Problem #3

Finding employees based on expertise, location & other important fields is impossible

  • There is no central employee directory and many offices have their own in spreadsheets
  • Employee directory has incomplete or outdated information
  • Company directory is not available while mobile or remote
  • Company organization chart is always out of date
  • No way to see recent hires or work anniversaries

Problem #4

Too many emails & meetings leave no time for work

  • Email is not quick enough to have a good conversation
  • Reply all to large group mails causes flooding of inboxes
  • Email creates pockets of black holes and a closed company culture
  • Getting responses and resolving issues over email takes forever
  • Too many status meetings just to keep everyone on the same page
Problem #5

No centralized knowledge base to reference

  • Information is spread across many tools making it time-consuming to find
  • It is hard to tell what information is current and what is outdated
  • There is no concept of content ranking, popularity, authority
  • There is no mechanism for content to be periodically reviewed for accuracy
  • There is no way to request or learn about the new information
Create easily searchable knowledge base
Easy mobile, remote and work from home access
Problem #6

Outdated systems don't allow mobile & remote access

  • Very few things we need are accessible from mobile
  • Even if something is accessible, the user experience is outdated
  • Not being able to do things while mobile makes everything slow
Problem #7

Employee training & onboarding is difficult

  • New employee onboarding is inefficient and involves a lot of steps
  • Every time a new employee joins we have to start from scratch
  • There is not a good place to encourage continuous learning
  • Training required for compliance with laws and company policies is hard to maintain and track
Employee training made easy
Automated and Flexible Workflows
Problem #8

Manual paper-pushing makes everything move too slow

  • Too many paper forms to fill out for everyday workflows
  • Getting approvals for things takes forever
  • Reliance on email for approvals slows the business to a crawl
  • We can’t find who is in and who is out of the office
Problem #9

Too many tools and they cost too much to license & support

  • Licensing costs for various tools add up quickly
  • Seems like many of the tools do similar things causing confusion
  • There are a lot of inefficiencies as we keep duplicating work from one tool to another
  • Supporting, training, and upgrading users on all these tools take over
  • Our company data is all over the place creating security risks
  • User experience across tools is all over the map
Replace many tools with MangoApps
Company digital hub
Problem #10

There is no one place that we can call our company’s digital home

  • We have to check 10 different tools to just get started with my day
  • We constantly have to log in and switch between different apps and tabs
  • HR and IT keep getting phone calls asking the same questions, over and over
  • No one place brings everything together
  • Lack of a central company app leaves employees feeling disorganized
Problem #11

Hard to communicate & collaborate with my project team

  • There is no centralized project site for the project team to work together
  • Projects frequently fall behind because of missed communication
  • Seeing all the conversations about a project requires going through endless email chains
  • We had a hard time keeping clients and partners on track with their to-do items
  • We tried everything from email, spreadsheets, Asana, Trello, Slack, Jira, MS projects, Monday, nothing worked well
Flexible project workspaces
Employee engagement, Rewards and Recognition made easy
Problem #12

Employee engagement and alignment with the company is lacking

  • There is no way to recognize colleagues for going above & beyond
  • We don’t seem to have a culture of celebrating team success
  • Our employee surveys have nothing to do with my role at the company
  • We don’t celebrate holidays and personal milestones as a company or a team

These workplace problems have a large negative impact on business
