Putting the employee first
Plek views communication from the employees experience. They are increasingly demanding: they want interesting work, nice colleagues, constantly develop themselves and participate in discussions about their future. As an organization, you can only achieve your goals if they are aligned with those of your employees. Otherwise, they walk away.
New organisational forms are also emerging: self-managing teams and task forces and freelancers including close collaboration with external partners. Processes and structures are becoming increasingly flexible and are constantly changing. And this has an impact on the way of working.
The world of work is upside down
Holland has over a million freelancers; millennials will only work for an employer for two to three years on average; and according to Gallup, only 12% of employees feels engaged in their work. The new standard is flexibility, self-regulating teams and cooperation with external parties.
Organizations must learn to communicate in a fundamentally different way, with the employee at the center. Only that leads to real involvement from employees as well as from freelancers or external cooperation partners. Plek, therefore, thinks from the needs of employees: good onboarding, easy collaboration in teams, real two-way communication, self-organisation, personal connections and opportunities for development and thinking along - all clearly arranged on one platform.
More than just a social intranet
Even though fundamentally, Plek remains a working tool: as a social intranet, internal knowledge sharing or community platform, or collaborative workplace, by also looking at the design and content from the employee experience you achieve organisational goals such as more effective communication, broader knowledge sharing, more efficient collaboration, less absenteeism and lower turnover.
