How tech can make workers happier

New technology has made workplaces more efficient. It’s easy, for example, for workers to use video conferencing technology to hold meetings with their fellow workers across the globe. But new tech may also leave employees feeling isolated. All things considered, new communication technology has eliminated much of the face-to-face aspect of the business world. But Natalie Burg, writing for tech provider Unify, says that tech doesn’t have to make the workplace a less human place. It’s all up to companies to deploy their technology the right way.

Using it right

Unfortunately, too many companies today make use of tech at the expense of the human element of business. Employees rarely meet face-to-face. They rely upon Skype. They seldom even talk by phone. Instead they shoot endless chains of e-mail messages at one another. This can wear on employees. It’ll make work seem like a grind.

The better way

Companies need not abandon new tech. They simply have to evolve to take full advantage of it. Think of companies with offices spread across the globe. An employee in the United States doesn’t need to sit in an office until 8 p.m. to share a key fact to a fellow worker in Hong Kong. Preferably, that employee can send a quick e-mail from the dinner table at home. That’s using technology to make life easier for workers.

Happier employees

Mobile technology is key to creating a more content workforce, Burg writes. Employees want the power to chat with their co-workers from the road any time of the day. They don’t need to be chained to their desks during the day. Mobile tech is great way companies can use high-tech to create more content workers, not stressed out ones.
