Here at Promevo, we are starting to get into holiday mode. We’ve had a fabulous holiday party, turned up the heat, and we swear we’ve seen a wayward reindeer in the parking lot. One thing we haven’t done yet is made our office appropriately festive. However, it’ll be simple to use the office’s Google Homes to help us transform the building into a place whose holiday spirit rivals the North Pole’s!
Celebrating the winter holidays isn’t just about having fun. It can increase employee morale by showing your workers that you care about their happiness and wellbeing. Employee Channel, an internal communications and HR app, discovered that only 16 percent of American workers felt their employers connected and engaged with them. Worse, Gallup found that disengaged workers have more absences, accidents, and make 60 percent more errors than engaged employees. Using the Google Home to make a more pleasant working environment shows workers you are trying to engage with them, while keeping things easy for your office manager.
It’s starting to get pretty chilly outside, but offices often have fluctuating temperatures, depending on the room. Some areas might be perfectly toasty, while others might be more appropriate for polar bears. If you have a zoned thermostat system, you’ll be can set different temperatures for individual rooms with Google Home-compatible Nest thermostats. Just say “Hey, Google, can you turn it up to 72 degrees on the first floor?” and everyone will thank you.
If you don’t have a zoned system, you can use a space heater and a smart plug instead. Tell Google Home to turn on the heater in the marketing office, and your employees will spend less time defrosting in their office and more time finishing year-end reports.
Happy Holidays & Happy Employees.
Making your office more cheery is a simple way to engage your employees and bring more joy into their worklife. The Google Home makes it easy to festively boost morale, increase focus and productivity, and decrease absence, accidents, and errors. Use the Google Home and its compatible devices to show your office that it’s truly the most wonderful time of the year!
