How to Keep Employees Informed and Motivated With Signs and Graphics

Author: Leah Edwards

Employees are often an organization’s most important assets. Making sure they have information about everything from the products and services you sell to the location of your next corporate event helps them stay informed and engaged.

Engaged employees contribute to the overall success of your company and organization because they understand the vision and mission of your company. They understand how they play an important role in the company’s success by providing high-quality work and great customer experiences. Well-planned and well-designed visual communications can be helpful in creating an environment that helps keep employees informed and motivated. 

Utilize Your Space for Communication

Meet employees where they are at different touchpoints in your facility. Wall graphics, murals and posters can display core values and mission statements while extending branding elements to your decor. Motivational quotes and images can brighten blank walls in work areas, as well as in break rooms.

Disseminate Information Through Digital Options

Digital signs and displays can feature short videos on new programs, acknowledge achievements, share information and reinforce company goals. Digital signs and graphics provide flexibility for communicating and changing messages swiftly and easily. To reach team members when not onsite, SMS text programs can quickly provide urgent updates.

Readily Recognize Achievements

Keep employees motivated and connected by recognizing accomplishments with custom awards and plaques. Share recognitions and communicate appreciation for your staff’s hard work across the building with hanging banners, movable banner stands and digital sign content. Regularly acknowledging performance and employee efforts can encourage pride among team members.

Keep Everything Moving Safely

Wayfinding signs and directories get employees and visitors where they need to go and keep foot traffic moving. Ensure work zones and any hazardous areas are clearly identified. Create a safety-first setting by placing regulatory and safety signs throughout the building, as well as in and around equipment.
