The Value of Employee Signage is Driven by its Content: Part 1

When meeting with businesses to discuss Employee Signage, I often open the conversation with a slide depicting the typical content found on tens of thousands of employee-facing displays. After letting the slide breathe for a few seconds, I pose the question: “What’s wrong with this picture?” The responses tend to focus on the display layout. “It’s too busy.” “My eyes don’t know where to look.” “The date and weather take up too much space.” “The video section should be larger.” What I find most curious is that people tend not to question the content itself.

Do Your Customers Know More Than Your Employees?

Do Your Customers Know More Than Your Employees?

Retailers are the number one users of digital signage. All those video walls, kiosks, endless aisles, sales assist tables and other forms of signage add up to some 40% of the market. And retailers are expected to retain that position in the foreseeable future.  Stores blanketed with digital signs mean customers often are well-informed about sales and product features. The question is, do they know more than your average retail employee? Given typically high associate turnover, the answer could be “yes.”  And the irony is, the same type of digital signs that benefit stores on the sales floor can provide similarly […]

The Human Brain: Hardwired for Motion

The Human Brain: Hardwired for Motion

But in today’s modern world, it’s easy to forget that the brain has been key to our continued existence.  “The brain . . . is designed to solve problems related to surviving in an unstable outdoor environment and to do so in nearly constant motion (to keep you alive long enough to pass your genes on).
