Five Ways Digital Signage Supports HR


If you’re in human resources, your job is full of challenges. Anything you can do to streamline systems and support your work is not only appreciated, it can make all the difference!

Digital signage is not often considered as part of the Human Resources toolkit, but it should be. While there are obvious uses for your marketing team, communicating well with your employees falls to your department and the more effective you can be, the better your entire company is.

Companies using digital signage in their facilities are able to communicate quickly and with impact across numerous locations without ever leaving their desks. And, when you use highly visual motion graphics you’re far more likely to grab the attention of your team than you are with a memo pinned to a bulletin board.

While there are dozens of ways digital signage might be helpful to your team, here are the top five ways that we have seen our digital signage solution help the human resources professionals we’re supporting:


When something important changes, communicating the change among a large staff and across numerous locations and shifts presents a real challenge. In seconds, with Retriever Digital Signage, you can update everyone on the team right where they are.


When you’re starting a new position, it can be challenging to learn all the names of the key people you need to know and get oriented with your internal procedures and policies. Leveraging digital signage in key spots will flatten the learning curve and cut your onboarding down by weeks.

Safety & Wellness

It has never been more critical to keep our employees safe and healthy, and digital signage is a tremendous way to communicate the important – and often quickly changing – health and safety policies team-wide, without leaving your desk.


Keep everyone on the same page with your goals and progress by displaying your KPIs on your digital signage. Track your goals and stay on target, together!

Employee Engagement

Whether you’re highlighting employee achievements, celebrating life’s greatest moments, or getting the word out about the company picnic, digital signage is a great way to keep your employees engaged and build your team dynamic. Particularly for manufacturing settings where an employee may not be connected via email, utilizing the power of digital signage to support your team building efforts is an effective solution to engaging your employees.
