The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly altered the business world. Employees now telecommute from home, the global economy contends with uncertainty, and the traditional office structure no longer stands. Because of all this change, engaging with employees is more important than ever. Don’t let the remote workplace stand in the way of forming bonds, sharing important messages, and hearing from your team. AIMeCAST makes employee engagement interesting, dynamic, and fast-paced in the COVID-centered workplace. Here are some of the best ways your organization can boost engagement.


Share Internal Communications in a Compelling Format


Simply sending another email won’t grab your audience’s attention. Instead, deliver messages through on-demand multimedia.


Communicating with your network about company policies, updates, and events is key in the online work world. Even after COVID-19, it’s estimated that by the end of 2021, 25-30% of the workforce will continue to work from home (Global Workplace Analytics, “Work-At-Home After Covid-19—Our Forecast”). Employees who were already inundated with emails now have schedules filled with calls and video meetings. Simply sending another email won’t grab your audience’s attention.


With AIMeCAST, it’s easy to deliver messages from leadership, send updates on corporate news, and expand the reach of meetings and town halls through on-demand multimedia content. This same format is the cornerstone of modern entertainment.

Encourage Fun and Healthy Competition


Make sure your employees are engaging with important content while also fostering a sense of camaraderie through interactive leaderboards.


There is no doubt it's difficult to create a sense of team-bonding through video calls and email. Make sure your employees are engaging with important content while also fostering a sense of camaraderie through interactive leaderboards. The friendly and productive team competition, powered by AIMeCAST’s advanced analytics, is proven to drive increased viewership.

Facilitate Constructive Dialogue and Feedback


Working from home can be isolating, especially as part of a larger organization. AIMeCAST allows your company to distribute quizzes, surveys, and live polls to your employees and drive group discussions. Solicit feedback, gauge employee interest, and create an open dialogue across time zones. Employees will feel engaged and connected knowing their feedback matters.


Offer a Wide Array of News and Educational Content


Capitalize on the podcasting trend to reach employees in the ways they want to be reached.

In 2020, over half of Americans listened to a podcast (Statista, “Percentage of consumers who have ever listened to audio podcasts in the United States from 2006 to 2020”). You can capitalize on this trend to reach employees in the ways they want to be reached—and AIMeCAST takes the experience far beyond the traditional audio podcast. Your employees will have access to video, audio, documents, and various interactive features as part of a modern ecosystem for education and engagement.


Employees will be excited to learn from colleagues and leadership, expand their knowledge, and be connected to your corporate community through this dynamic platform. A walk around the neighborhood, a trip to the grocery store, or a morning run will be made both productive and insightful through multimedia podcasting.

Although we may be physically distanced, multimedia podcasting allows companies to be more technologically connected than ever before. Keep employees in the loop and facilitate open communication through AIMeCAST. The nature of the corporate community is changing, as is the best way to engage in corporate communications. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop and employees around the world continue to work from home, AIMeCAST will help your team stay not only connected, but engaged in this new environment.
