What we would call the ‘typical office environment’ is evolving faster than ever. You don’t choose the systems you use, your staff do. Which is why getting employees to adopt the tools YOU want them to, can be like fitting a square peg in a round hole. Here is how Dynamics 365 is different, allowing you to bring staff on board and create engaged and motivated workplace environment…
The Power of Transparency
Employees want nothing more than involvement in the big decisions that will impact their lives – and Microsoft Dynamics 365 does just that, allowing employers to bring staff into the decision-making process. Consequently, they will feel empowered, as this kind of transparency will allow them to provide feedback, outline intentions and assume a policy of knowledge-sharing, so that those who use the system feel part of a collaborative organisation, where their feedback and ideas are of value.
Tip: Highlight benefits rather than features, people get excited about things that help make their lives easier!
Time To Embrace Flexible Working
The joy of a cloud-based system is that it introduces new levels of flexibility. There are recognisable trends towards digital natives working-from-home, with the Trades Union Congress (TUC) indicating that this has increased by a fifth in the last ten years to reach a record 1.5m people. What’s more, many employees also bring their own device (BYOD) rather than an office-supplied laptop!
Challenging The Status Quo
Change must come from the top, so not only is it vital business leaders make the best use of the new software, management must embrace it as well. We all look to those in positions of authority to establish expectations, so be sure those with seniority lead by example and encourage such behaviours to spread throughout the organisation.
On the flip side, just because you’ve always done it that way, doesn’t mean it’s how it should be done! Listen to feedback from all staff across your organisation. Empower staff to find new and smarter ways of working – and it could be of benefit to the entire organisation.
It’s All About Feedback
Dynamics 365 has collaboration at its core. Every app focuses on improved transparency, efficiency and communication,
90% of leaders agree that cloud-based collaboration has the potential to improve business processes. If you’re thinking “I agree with that too, but why aren’t we doing it?” then you’ve taken the words out of our mouth! Dynamics 365 shouldn’t be installed and set to one side. As such, managers should leverage such value to inspire interaction with their teams and focus on ways the system can continue to improve the workplace
The Dynamics 365 Difference
82% of companies reportedly saved money by moving to the cloud. As a cloud-based solution, Dynamics 365 has been made with productivity, efficiency and collaboration in mind. By harnessing its power, you have the ability to significantly improve your ROI, but this requires buy-in from both your employees and stakeholders.
