engage your workforce

On-site employees are the heart of your organization. Without a strategic and engaging internal communications plan, vital health and safety information messages are often ignored, delayed, or lost in translation. The very nature of the workforce creates a barrier to these types of communications. Typically, companies rely on old-fashioned communication channels to reach their employees. 

There is a better way! The GDJ Collective creates accessible and engaging communications through videography, photography, and newsletters that provide you a direct link to every individual in the workforce. Those in high-risk occupations will see your health and safety messaging, and your employees will have the opportunity to take part in company-wide communication campaigns.

How to Engage with Your Workforce

If you’re not using videos to connect with your workforce, you are missing an incredible opportunity to bring your communications to the next level. By creating weekly videos onsite, you will achieve a noticeable difference in the culture of your workforce and their safety rates. From our experience, weekly videos allow you to address the big issues while at the same time including timely messages for issues that arise. We will help to lay out a strategy on capturing all of those things that are important to keep your employees safe and reduce incidents. For the best reception of the content, we recommend your videos be between 3-5 minutes. If you have training video needs or more of a documentary style video, let’s talk.

Seeing someone doing the right thing on a jobsite helps to reinforce proper protocols and even better, if the person is recognizable to coworkers, a sense of community is established. Through professional candid shots of workers in the field, you gain an edge to use those in your presentations, banners, recognition programs, and throughout your communications.

Communicate health & safety messages, and photography in a way that your workforce can connect with and absorb. Our storytelling helps to reinforce and accompany the messaging in your videos and from your leadership. Our photography is usually the favorite part of our newsletters and helps to draw the reader in. We encourage you to have the newsletters accessible in whatever languages spoken on site and we are able to offer bi-lingual communications.

Using our photography of real people doing the job right, we produce digital signs and large scale banners that can hang in any common area, typically the lunchroom. We have found that when people see themselves like this, there is a shift on how they relate and care for one another, they take pride in their work, and this develops a lasting community. We have seen it at every site and are confident they are an important piece of communication.

In the gas, oil, and construction industry, where your employees work, what they do, and what they need varies. With strategic and engaging communications, you can reach your workforce, support their work functions, and target communications to meet their needs.
