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!

Diving into the tech element: four amazing days in Barcelona!

Diving into the tech element: four amazing days in Barcelona!

There is no need to explain what the Mobile World Congress is. Everyone in the industry knows that is the event of the year.

Internalia Group had to be there! We always have a place in this event for several years. This year we were located in the Telefonica partner’s corner at the 4YFN, which is part of the Mobile World Congress. As they explain in their website: 4 Years from Now (4YFN) is the start-up business platform of Mobile World Congress Barcelona that enables start-ups, investors and corporations to connect and launch new ventures together.

It was a great pleasure to be there on behalf of my company. I had the opportunity of talking to dozens of people who were interested in speaking to Internalia: potential clients, potential partners and people in the mobile/technology sector. I do believe that this kind of events are an amazing opportunity to grow in a professional and personal way!

I have to highlight the good vibrations in the whole event. We were all working there, but we were enjoying at the same time.

We really hope to be there next year as well! Counting down the days!

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!
