What to send through an employee text messaging system
One of the biggest perks of employee text messaging is that it’s versatile, and you can use it for a variety of use cases depending on your needs. Here are some of the most popular we’ve seen among our users.
Shift schedulingSwitching shifts can be a headache if you’re coordinating with a traditional group chat. With an employee texting platform, you can send out a mass text with the shifts you need covered and coordinate with individual employees through the inbox to get scheduling done faster and more efficiently.
Emergency notificationsDon’t get caught without a way to communicate with your team when things go wrong. Whether it’s a fire, inclement weather, power outage, or other emergency, you can trigger an emergency alert text to your entire staff or specific departments (via segments) to get a headcount or communicate instructions.
Employee educationIf your industry requires continuing education in order to maintain licensing (like real estate does), you can send links to courses, registration pages, or event sign-up forms to help your employees keep their continuing ed current.
Off-site employee communicationsRemote work is everywhere lately, and so are companies that send employees out into the field. While off-site employees may not be next to their computers, they’re likely to have their phones within arm’s reach, which means you can text them with important updates or questions.
Hiring and recruitingYou can use text messaging recruiting software to advertise open positions, make it easy for candidates to apply, and simplify async conversations. Announce new openings to existing employees and ask them to refer colleagues.
