Engage employees using a Tweetwall and learn innovative ways to use this tool for increased participation and collaboration.

Many of you are familiar with using a Tweetwall for live events. This is a great way to engage attendees and boost social sharing. But did you know that a Tweetwall can also bring a variety of benefits to an office environment?

As a company owner or executive, you are always looking for new ways to engage employees. Doing so can boost productivity, improve efficiency, and keep workers excited about their job. With the help of Everwall, you will find it easier than ever to engage employees using Twitter. Here is how this technology can be implemented:

1. Giveaways Based on Engagement

Engagement- Ways You Can Use a Tweetwall to Engage EmployeesAre you seeking ways to encourage social sharing by your employees? If so, a giveaway based on engagement and number of tweets is a great place to start. The prize could even be a shoutout on your company social media pages (if you have a larger following).

Thanks to Everwall, the results can be tracked in real time with the use of leaderboards. This gamification gives employees a good idea of where they stand, how the competition is shaping up, and of course, what they have to do to win. Some good, friendly competition never hurt anyone, especially when it will help boost your sales. The more that your employees focus on getting employees into your restaurant or bar, the more money that is walking in the doors.

2. Host a Contest

A contest, especially one with quality prizes, is sure to increase employee engagement. Here is an idea to consider: see who can get the most photos of them tweeted by customers.

This may not work for every type of company, but it’s perfect for those in which employees are always in contact with customers.

Bars and restaurants, for instance, could really benefit from this. Employees could encourage customers to take a photo and post it to Twitter with a particular hashtag.

Regardless of who wins the contest, nothing changes the fact that the final result is an increase in targeted social sharing.

3. Team Competitions

Is your department better than another? Is your sales team the best of the best? Well, it’s time to prove your worth.

For an office application, the leaderboard can be used to create friendly team and departmental competitions. You can offer company incentives to the winning team, such as: casual days, paid time off, free lunches, and other similar benefits.

With a leaderboard tracking progress, it won’t be long before the competition heats up.

4. Create Polls

Forget about traditional ways of learning what your employees and customers think. Instead, you can use Everwall to create and display polls in real time on the Tweetwall.

For example, restaurants could take a poll amongst customers in which they answer a question such as:

  • What is your favorite dish?
  • What is your favorite drink?
  • Is there a particular special that attracts you to the restaurant?
  • Who is your favorite server or bartender?

It is one thing to create polls. It is another thing entirely to share the results with others. Everwall allows you to show the results in real time, allowing everyone to see them and share their thoughts on them. You can even ask wacky questions if you want to really liven the crowd up.
