If like many companies you’ve got TV screens dotted all over your offices, and like most companies these screens are being used to display metrics, news or other corporate information you’re in luck!
See the thing is Visual Communications doesn’t have to be one dimensional supervisor dashboards churning out real time performance metrics, or stale digital signage systems containing company news and share prices. With a little imagination the humble TV can reduce employee stress, increase engagement and generate smiles and laughter at your place of work.
So why should we all be looking at the content we push to TV screens, and be looking for more ways to make our employees smile and laugh?
Well, studies show that laughing and smiling have positive short and long-term effects. When you start to laugh, it doesn’t just lighten your load mentally, it actually induces physical changes in your body. Including: Stimulate organs, increase oxygen levels in the blood, stimulate our hearts, lungs and facial muscles, plus increase the endorphins that are released from our brains.
Longer term laughing is likely to improve your immune system, which should in turn mean less absenteeism due to sickness, release neuropeptides that help fight stress and potentially more-serious illnesses. In fact, in some cases a good laugh can even ease pain by causing the body to produce its own natural painkillers.
Laughter can also make it easier to cope with difficult, stressful situations and helps us connect with other people. Laughing and smiling also makes us more attractive to others, lowers blood pressure and even helps reduce the signs of aging by pumping fresh blood to the muscles in our faces.
Let’s face it, with tight deadlines, targets to reach and meetings there is little time to stop and smile, but what if the content being displayed on TVs in and around your offices were able to blend happiness inducing news and inject some fun into your day?
