The importance of using the 3R in the office and outside the office.

The importance of using the 3R in the office and outside the office.

Our Smart Business Apps fulfill the 3R: reduce, reuse and recycle. Basically our apps reduce the paper waste and energy consumption, reuse a tool that the companies already have, the employees smartphones, and recycle the information: is stored in the cloud and is always there, accessible for the head office.

In short, we want to be responsible and sustainable and we want to help others to do it as well with our Smart Business Apps!

Obviously the environmental impact of industrial companies is much bigger if we compare with offices, but still, we have to be aware of how much damage we can make to the environment and society.

The environmental impact in offices is basically about:

  • Energy consumption
  • Travel consumption
  • Paper waste

We help you to reduce energy and travel consumption and about the paper we reduce the level to zero. As we said before, everything is stored in the cloud.

About the society aspect of it, we help as well in improving quality of life:

  1. The director or supervisor lost the uncertainty : with our best seller Working Day Suite, they have real information in real time to work with and make decisions.
  2. The employee is more effective now and reduces travel hours, related costs and energy consumption. They can optimize their time better.
  3. The relationship between head office and remote employees improves dramatically because the reduction of misunderstandings thanks to the accurate real time information: healthier work relationships.

Every small change in our behaviors, in our daily tasks, counts in the environmental protection. We are specially proud of being part of all this green revolution and we want to highlight the importance of using the 3R in our personal and professional life and, remember, that every small step counts!!! 🙂

The difference between communication and control

The difference between communication and control

One of the big questions we use to hear at Internalia, it’s about our best seller, Working Day Suite. Is it a tool to control the employees? Maybe the team is going to be against the application? Are they going to think that we mistrust them?

And the answer is, yes, it can happen. But it depends totally, one hundred percent, on the head office communication work.

Once you decide to get WDS is crucial that the managers explain to their employees how the application works and, above all, which the application main purpose is: exchange of information, better communication, efficient organization, etc.

When you are in the office and your whole staff is working in the office as well, you probably can have reliable information of your employees straight away, probably you can just go to your employee desk and ask how you are getting on.

However, when part of your staff or the vast majority is working abroad, it’s more complicated to get this kind of simple, but essential day by day information.

With WDS everything is easier, you can see in fact the routes they are taking, the calls they are doing, the forms they are sending, etc. But it is not about control, it is about getting accurate information.  Some of the common benefits for staff and management are:

  • It makes easier the collaborative work.
  • Centralization of information.
  • The employees can send proof of their work in a very simple way.
  • Everything is stored in the cloud for 365 days.
  • Working Day Suite has the 3R: reduce, recycle and reuse.

In short, Working Day Suite is a tool to make easier everybody’s working life.  Just talk to your employees about the common benefits. In no time they will be comfortable with the application (very intuitive and easy to use) and everyone will have a better working life!

How to increase the level of happiness among employees

How to increase the level of happiness among employees

It is common sense. If you have happier employees working for your company, they are going to be more involved and they are going to be more productive.

The question is? Which are the keys to increase the levels of happiness and satisfaction in your company? All surveys point to this factors:

  1. Good work environment
  2. The development of the employee and team skills
  3. The rationalization of working hours and the possibility of teleworking
  4. Reconciliation, transparency and trust
  5. Define goals to achieve
  6. Offer leisure team activities outside the office
  7. Encourage empathy and sense of humor

In Internalia Group Ireland we believe that all of them are critical. But we want to underline the importance and interdependence of trust, transparency, goals to achieve, rationalization of working hours and teleworking. If the company makes an effort to, first of all, define goals to achieve, the employee knows exactly what to do. If the worker knows exactly what to do, he/she can focus in the goals instead of being tied to a chair for X quantity of hours. If the company trust the employee and gives to him/her the responsibility of meeting the targets, he/she can make his own schedule or even have the possibility of teleworking, full or part time.

Our Smart Business Apps help to the company and the workers to organize and coordinate goals to achieve, quantity of work done and quality of the job with very simple tools (tracker, forms, planner, orders) in their mobiles and in their laptops. They are all easy to use, plug and go and very intuitive.

In short, we provide the right tools to improve the company organization and the staff happiness level!
