Conventional wisdom says that employees are a company's most valuable asset. This absolutely true. Employee loyalty is a crucial driver to increasing the value of your workforce.
The best way to earn loyalty is to give it. A company demonstrates its dedication to workers by showing them how it considers their interests and needs. Gaining employee loyalty begins with valuing their safety and health.
Safety at the Time Clock
Your employees are eager to get back onsite. Others have been working onsite already as essential workers. They may be eager to see their colleagues return and feel a bit of normalcy. But how do we create employee loyalty through a safer environment?
Employees want to feel safe. Regaining a sense of normalcy doesn't mean ignoring new priorities, such as expanded notions of workplace safety. According to Wakefield Research's "Return to Office Survey," 61% of workers want strict enforcement of Covid safety protocols.
Providing safe environment begins with a contactless experience at the time clock. This is one way to show employees the company is committed to their well-being. With a simplified workflow, a Swipe and Go time clock lets workers clock in and out without ever touching the time clock.
With Swipe and Go, the time clock screen displays the worker's information, including whether they're being clocked in or out. If a worker accidentally skips a swipe, they can switch to a clock in or out, as applicable. They would touch the time clock in this case, but it also prevents insufficient data from flowing into your attendance system.
In most instances, workers will quickly clock in and out with Swipe and Go without touching the time clock. A contactless time clock that workers can move through quickly without having to congregate reduces two points of transmission. That's showing your workers you take their health and workplace safety seriously.
Employee Loyalty Generates a High ROI
Loyal employees who feel safe and taken care of are emotionally invested in contributing to the success of your company, which can result in:
- Employees taking more initiative
- Employees taking more pride in their work
- Employees supporting their coworkers
- Saving money on minimizing employee turnover
Take concrete steps to show the company's loyalty to your workers, and you'll get well paid in return through their loyalty.
