Why Workplace Enterprise Software lack the Power of Joy and Happiness?
Companies invest & put emphasis in providing an exciting workplace environment (yoga, ergonomics chairs etc…). It is no longer a trendy thing to do. It has been adapted across small and large companies globally. Most have a dedicated team and departments. But the Software Products employees use fail miserably to live up to all the ergonomics efforts that companies are thriving to provide to their employees.
Employees spend majority of their time using some kind of Enterprise Software. These products are boring and cumbersome to use. They are polar opposite of #tiktok. Employees grind their day working in tools that are counterintuitive to their established behavior of using very user friendly consumer products. Why?
The answer is simple that these products are not designed with Employee First mindset. They are just tools that do stuff. The excitement of using TikTok or Instagram does not happen in these workplace tools.
Future of Work products have to bring excitement and joy. #Employees are craving for it. Organizations have to bring #chiefpeopleofficer and early adopter employees into the decision making process before they procure an Enterprise Software Product.
#ergonomics friendly software tools will have the same effect like #yoga at #workplace. It will allow companies attract talent and retain their employees.
Most importantly, it will bring joy and happiness to their employees and an all around #workplacetransformation will ensue.
