BMF launches new App to bring company information to employees’ fingertips
The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has launched a new mobile App specifically designed to create a regular communications stream between companies and their employees.
Developed by Corsby Associates and named BMF Employee Engage App, the App is ideal for multi-site builders merchants or building materials suppliers.
By making essential HR information visible at all times, including the company’s Employee Handbook, Policy & Procedures and the employee’s Contract, the App reduces the time HR staff spend on dealing with basic enquiries.
It can also be configured to push notifications through to each user, so important information is instantly available. With the App on their mobile device, employees can also quickly complete topic surveys when it suits them.
Other functions, such as the Employee of the Month, are designed to encourage and thank workers. Staff members can also interact with each other via the App.
Richard Ellithorne, BMF Membership Services Director, said: “We are extremely excited to offer a fresh approach to employee communications. Most of us use apps everyday for different functions at home so why not use one at work? Particularly one that makes it so simple to interact with directly with everyone in your business.”
John Porter, MD Crosby Associates, added: “The Employee Engage App provides a new way of thinking and working for many HR functions. Everyone who sees it, loves it, because it is not a one-size fits all approach. he app can be customised to include the modules that suit the needs of different organisations, and the look and feel can also reflect the company brand. It is also simple to update and include new features and content at a later date.”
