The light-touch employee app content plan that creates 90% app usage

Most of your news feed should be about employees

The first thing every successful employee app has is a news feed. What really matters is what content you add. People are naturally interested in each other and want to hear about their news.

Share ‘moments that matter’ - welcome new hires, share promotions, retirements, milestones and more.

Promote your health and wellbeing events and add polls to encourage feedback and suggestions.

Use push notifications to encourage people to read changes to important polices and useful information.

Use your news feed to drive employees to other sections of your app and keep news items short and engaging.

Build social connections with a wide range of employees' photos

People are interested in other people and love to see colleagues' stories. Providing a space for social interactions creates a close-knit culture and positive experience for your teams, as well as driving engagement and app usage.

Encourage people to share their stories through photos and get people talking about their life and interests.

Mix employees' photos with official company photos like training events, team building days and more.

Ask employees to like and comment on their colleagues photos.

Avoid silos & share important projects

Most organisations work across different departments or locations and it's impossible to speak about projects with everyone at the same time. However, it's really important for teams to learn about the great work that is being completed, even if they aren't involved in it.

Allow project managers to add project updates from their phone or laptop.

Use push notifications within your app to notify everyone of new updates and key wins across the business at the same time.

Encourage collaboration and new ideas across different departments.

Give every team member quick and easy access to the great work happening across the business, no matter their location, department or role.

Employees, especially new hires, may feel uncomfortable about asking questions around company policies. The best approach is to ensure your teams have equal and easy access to policies. This removes any embarrassment and also saves time spent in HR meetings.
