Employee tracking is often seen as a tool for management only, however when done right, it can become a great tool for employees as well. The benefits of Safe Steps for the user during the pandemic are obvious: when socially distanced, you are able to protect yourself and your loved ones that you interact with outside of work from the virus. However, Safe Steps will be a valuable tool for the employees even after the pandemic. Below are five employee benefits of Safe Steps for during and after the pandemic.
1- Employees are empowered to protect themselves
During the pandemic, the main motivation for everyone when they are in situations where they interact with others is to protect themselves and their loved ones from any risk of transmission. This means that social distancing is a priority for everyone. However, it is not easy to maintain the safe distance when working because people who focus on their work might forget to be careful around others. Using wearable devices, Safe Steps makes sure that employees are always notified when they are at risk in real-time. This allows them to protect themselves at all times without being distracted from their work. For a higher level of personalization, Safe Steps comes with two different options for the wearable device and employees can use the bracelet or the neck tie depending on the safety requirements of their job function.
2- Workplaces can be kept open in a safe way
COVID-19 is a highly infectious virus that can cause workplaces to temporarily close down and stop operations. Identifying a case or multiple cases within an organization can mean up to 2 months of downtime. Safe Steps aims to help keep businesses open during this unprecedented health crisis in two ways: allowing employees to maintain a safe distance from others at all times and tracking interactions to create accurate filiation reports in the case of contamination in the organization. With the most recent update, Safe Steps can also integrate the government issued HES (Hayat Eve Sığar) code to make sure employee risk status can be viewed by the management to prevent contamination. These comprehensive protective measures mean businesses can stay open and employees can keep their jobs and salaries.
3- Location tracking can improve safety even after the pandemic
With location tracking properties added, Safe Steps is a great solution for safety management in workplaces even after the pandemic. Safety in complex factory environments may be difficult to manage manually. Safe Steps wearables communicate with each other to maintain social distance between users, however it can also be used to make sure employees are protected from accidents. For example, an employee wearing the device can be warned when an equipment such as a forklift is nearby, making sure that they pay close attention to reduce any risk of collision or accidents. With location finding activated, the devices can also be used to locate employees in case of an emergency quickly. Devices with built-in panic buttons can send an emergency SOS to pinpoint someone’s location if they need help.
4- Wearables can boost efficiency and reduce time spent
For smart factories, data collection is becoming key to improve the efficiency of processes and capturing significant cost and time savings that affect the bottom line. Wearables trackers allow management to collect and analyze data without adding to the workload of employees since data collection is automatically done by the devices as employees work and move around the facilities. From the collected data, valuable and meaningful insights can be inferred to streamline the entire operation, reducing the workload of employees and saving them time.
5- Increased accountability builds trust between employers and employees
With employee tracking, management receives the most accurate information about an employee’s performance. This allows management to make informed and fair decisions when rewarding satisfactory job performance, meaning every employee receives the incentives for their hard work. Salary and bonus discussions ce be made using concrete performance data, making it much easier for both parties to come to a shared understanding. The management can see everything an employee has achieved and this will help them recognize and appreciate the effort made. The trust between employers and employees also mean employees can be more autonomous when managing their time and effort at work.
