How Digital Cards Can Help You Retain Employees

We’re in the middle of one of the biggest workplace shifts in history, with millions of employees around the globe quietly quitting or changing their jobs. A big contributing factor for this isn’t money, as you might expect, it’s happiness – and feeling appreciated plays a huge role in how happy employees feel.

The statistics tell the tale, with recent Zippia  research finding that 80% of employees would work harder if they felt more appreciated, while figures from techjury reveal that for 37% of all employees, recognition is the most important factor in feeling engaged.

So what do you do?

 

The little card that’s connecting up the workplace

Sometimes it’s the small  things that help employees to feel more connected, like a thank you card or note. ecardWidget is a simple digital card tool that takes this concept further, allowing employers to encourage employee cooperation by letting them thank each other with personalised cards.

Having a high level of employee wellbeing in your organization is the key to building loyalty and getting the best out of people – when staff feel appreciated for their contribution, they’re motivated to be more productive. Providing a personal touch can make that all-important difference – ecardWidget is a great way to boost employee morale and help people feel recognized and appreciated.

It’s the perfect way to promote mutual collaboration throughout the entire workforce, as it lets employees take the initiative themselves, by sending cards of appreciation to their colleagues.

How does eCardWidget work?

Using eCardWidget is easy and setup is simple – employers simply upload their ecard design, customize and add their branding, then add their widget to their internal system, so employers can send cards to each other. Alternatively, they can publish their ecard widget to their website, or anywhere else by linking or embedding it. This allows anyone who has access to send cards via email, Facebook, Twitter, and more.

There are multiple customization features available, including email tracking, opt-ins, analytics to review performance, and social media sharing. Available cards can be offered for free, or for a fee and there are built-in ecommerce options, as well as a Shopify App.

It’s not just businesses who can benefit from ecardWidget – it’s perfect for nonprofits too, as they can use their widgets to take donations and raise awareness by letting donors send ecards out to their friends. In fact, as it has so many personalization options, causes, churches, and anyone wanting to offer digital cards for free or at cost, can use it to offer a unique way of sending a message.

Good feature set and great support! The image uploading and editing process for the cards is nice and simple, and sending works well without getting to Spam folders. I had an issue with the front-end texts not being available Brazilian Portuguese, but with a quick exchange with the developer, the translations were added and the problem’s solved.

This year we had the opportunity to partner with ecardwidget to implement our first formal recognition within our organization. As the leader in social determinants of health, it’s important that we show our internal team members that we care as much as we do our external members. We have been able to create birthday cards, anniversary cards, company value cards as well as get well soon, thank you and sympathy. This program has enhanced our overall culture and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my experience. Thank you for offering a way to make connections to team members.
