Enplug’s Screensaver Engages Work From Home Employees with Digital Signage
Enplug helps you connect with employees when it’s no longer business as usual
With new social distancing requirements, it seems as though the business landscape has changed overnight. Once bustling corporate headquarters are empty as employees work from home. Apartments and houses have become our offices. Spouses, children and pets are our new coworkers.
Here at Enplug, all of our employees are currently working from home. But that doesn’t mean we’ve left digital signage in the office. In response to the new work from home reality, we’ve built tools that let our team stay connected. With the new Enplug Screensaver, workplace visual communication is now on our home laptops.
Turn work from home laptops into an employee engagement tool
Our Screensaver is a digital signage software tool that lets you share your content as a URL. Employees working from home can view in a web browser or install it as a screensaver. It’s an easy way to transform home office devices like laptops, desktops or smart TVs into digital displays that keep your remote team connected.

Whether you have one employee working from home or thousands, it’s easy to continue sharing engaging visual communications as though staff were in your office.

When to use the Enplug Screensaver
Just because employees are working from home, doesn’t mean it’s okay to cut back on communication. In fact, information like business hours, benefits policies, and company news can help reduce the uncertainty staff might be experiencing.
Also, without your team meeting face-to-face, anniversary announcements and other employee recognition can go a long way in minimizing a sense of isolation. With Enplug’s COVID-19 templates you can even deliver health and safety information to your employee’s living room so they remember to follow best practices for staying well.
