Employee communication experts DeskAlerts have emphasized the importance of image-based messaging, after a survey of theirs found a staggering 90% of employees find images help with comprehension.

9 in 10 employees interviewed by the team at DeskAlerts discovered that information presented via images can help to convey an idea far more effectively than text alone. The research also found that 30% of people learn best through visual thinking, while 45% use a combination of words and images to help themselves understand certain concepts.

Adobe, masters of Photoshop, report that picture-based posts have an engagement rate that is 600 times higher than simple text-based messages on social platforms. It is also believed that around 83% of the learning we do is done visually.

The information was released as part of an infographic created by DeskAlerts explaining the importance of their corporate screensaver software. The innovation allows employers to make their workforce’s desktops interactive, so that they can get their attention whenever they need to. Managers can send over PowerPoint presentations or make their own screensavers using the DeskAlerts visual editor, which can then be sent instantly to staff members’ desktops. The combination of words and images is sure to get any message across succinctly and effectively, so businesses can be sure their employees are constantly in the loop.

Anton Vdovin, Project Manager at DeskAlerts, says, “The importance of using image-based communications in the workplace cannot be overstated – combining images with text can help employees to better comprehend ideas and understand new information, which is crucial in a world where workers are constantly bombarded with content.”

He adds, “For employers that want to ensure their most important messages are getting through, our research and the work of many others has proven that image-based messaging and communication is the very best technique for enhancing understanding and ensuring that employees understand the messages their employers are trying to get across.”

The corporate screensaver functionality enabled by DeskAlerts allows employers to deliver rich content like images, text, clickable links, flash videos, Powerpoint slides and scrolling text – sure to get any worker’s attention. Managers can turn the static desktops of their employees into dynamic and engaging communications channel that are non-intrusive, yet sure to deliver important messages in an eye-catching way.

The messages can be tailored to individuals or sent to specific groups and departments to ensuring targeted communications that get the point across. Messages can also be scheduled – so if a manager wishes to remind their employees of an upcoming meeting or an approaching deadline, they can schedule their DeskAlerts software to do so. Any new screensavers sent by the DeskAlerts admin account will overwrite existing screensavers – so there will be a 100% delivery rate across the board.

Delivering these kind of attention-grabbing notifications can have a multitude of benefits for businesses.
