5 Simple Ways to Get Employees Excited About New Technology

excited employee

While it can be exciting to invest in new office technology, that doesn’t mean everyone under management will be thrilled. Here are five easy tips for getting everybody on board.

1. Ask for Input

When buying new office technology ask what your employees need. Instead of just assuming that they want a faster printer, if you ask you might find they want a printer that produces better color documents. If the input your employees give is valued, they will see themselves excited to use the new office technology.

2. Don’t Forget Compatibility

Integrating office technology into what you already have in place can be a pain if they two systems don’t mix. Your employees will be more irritated by new office technology if they can’t figure out how to work it or if it doesn’t help them do their job faster.

3. Focus on Benefits

When you are getting ready to bring in office technology that your employees are unfamiliar with you should focus on how it will benefit them. By exciting the product, you will have less work to do when it comes to teaching everyone how to use the device.

4. Plan Ahead

The worst thing you can do is spring new office technology on your employees. Everyone has a routine and people are used to going about their workflow in a certain way. By introducing new devices without forewarning, you can throw off someone's productivity.

5. Try Using Rewards

If you are struggling to convince your employees that the office technology is a positive change you can use rewards. One incentive would be a challenge such as who can master the new technique first.

The big takeaway here is not to surprise people. Warn them in advance that changes are coming and that they are many benefits associated with the new office technology. For more tips and tricks for your business, contact us today!
