We'll cover some of the best ways to use Blink to strengthen the connection between corporate headquarters and frontline employees.
In this article:
📹 Leverage video
A video connects better than plain text because it allows frontline workers to see and listen to other people in the company. So before you share a written message, see if it would be better to turn it into a video instead.
From briefings and toolbox talks to employee recognition and updates from the CEO, a video can bring many types of messages to life.
📁 Partner with HR
Both HR and Comms departments communicate with workers regularly.
So, it’s crucial that they work together and get aligned on the messages to be posted, along with the tone, style, and frequency of communication.
For example, you can schedule a weekly meeting with the HR department to brief the team on relevant topics from both parties.
🎨 Create a watertight internal communication strategy
You want Blink to make a meaningful contribution to your business outcomes. And to do that, it’s essential to first have clear goals and a concrete strategy to meet them.
Planning your messages in advance helps you eliminate last-minute panic situations about what to share and how to share it.
A strong internal communication plan also helps get everyone make adjustments collectively.

📖 Improve employee onboarding and training
Onboarding and training frontline workers properly are crucial to their progress and performance. But they may not have the time to carry or read sheets of paper, or a personal computer or desk to view PDFs or webinars.
Blink helps you reach and engage them through a device they all have access to. So use the app to provide them with on-the-job training and other information at their fingertips.
Use our Content Management Hub to let workers quickly access procedures, guides, and policies in one convenient place.
🎊 Recognize and appreciate your employees
72% of leaders agree that recognition has a big impact on employee engagement. When workers are recognized publicly, it motivates everyone to perform better.
Blink allows you to give public recognition for the whole organization to see. With our 'kudos' feature, you can call out groups or individuals.
Few things will engage frontline workers more than regular appreciation for the hard work they do.
