9 Ways Digital Signage Helps HR Managers


As the creators of Retriever Digital Signage, we work with an array of businesses who are using digital signage to get their message across to a number of audiences, in a number of ways. But, when we look at our customer base, we see a major trend of people for whom Retriever has been a lifesaver: Human Resources Managers.

For people in the human resources field, Retriever has been an ideal solution for quickly and easily keeping their team informed and engaged with live, up-to-the minute information across numerous locations with very little effort from the Human Resources team.

Here are just nine ways that we have seen our digital signage solution help the human resources professionals we’re working with:

Welcome Guests and Visitors

When you have guests in your workplace, make them feel important from the moment they enter the door! We’ve had clients tell us that people ask to take a picture with the screen showing their name – how awesome is that?

Introduce Your Team

When you’re starting a new position, it can be challenging to learn all the names of the key people you need to know. Introduce your team in a way that’s passive for your employees to absorb as they learn their new job, without the embarrassment of having to ask people to remind them of their names.

Promote Wellness and Safety Information

When it comes to safety and wellness for your employees, you can’t be too communicative. But, new procedures and policies can be challenging to enact, especially if your team is large. Rather than frustrating memos and meetings, keep your team reminded using your digital signage and save yourself the time of repeating things over and over!

Engage People with News, Trivia & Weather

The biggest error people make with both static and digital signage is not keeping their content fresh. When the same content repeats endlessly, everyone tunes it out. But, when there’s always something current and relevant on your signage, it keeps people engaged. Retriever comes with auto-updating trivia, weather, and local news built in! All you have to do is add the slide to your playlist – then your content will stay fresh every day!

Celebrate Company Goals

Working towards a goal together? Track your progress and celebrate it with your Retriever screens throughout your space!

Celebrate Birthdays

When your team is large, it can be a challenge to show your team that you value them individually. A quick win is to celebrate their birthdays – but the larger your team, the more of a challenge that becomes! With Retriever, you can easily celebrate employee birthdays and schedule them out for the entire year!

Celebrate Wins

Speaking of celebration, celebrate EVERYTHING! Celebration breaks up the monotony and reminds people that what they’re doing matters. Small and big wins are celebrated easily using digital signage – just add a slide to your playlist to spark a smile!

Showcase Customer Feedback

When you’re not customer-facing, it can be hard to keep your end-user at the top of mind. Regularly showcasing customer feedback is an effective strategy to keep your team pulling in the same direction and feeling a sense of purpose in their work.

Keep Your Team Informed, Up to Date, and Happy

There are limitless ways to utilize digital signage to communicate with your team, with your own creativity your only boundary. Whatever you do with your Retriever screens, it will immediately improve your ability to keep your team informed, up to date, and happy – and that’s the way to create a culture of engagement on your team.
