Reach Employees Faster with eSignature SMS Delivery in HR

Email is one of the most commonly used channels to reach consumers and employees, but it isn’t always the most effective. The average office worker receives 120 emails per day. That’s a lot of emails (and potential noise) for any individual to sift through each day.

Mobile devices have become the standard form of communication for people across the globe as it is one of the fastest methods to connect with others. People across generations use mobile devices to quickly access and share information with each other via text or SMS—making it one of the most effective ways for businesses to engage employees. 

Employees today are constantly inundated with information and oftentimes the important message—the document that needs to be signed or the policy update that needs to be communicated—does not get the attention it deserves. Coupled with the challenges of hiring workers in a time of staffing shortages, SMS becomes even more compelling. HR organizations need a solution that’s faster and more efficient when it comes to hiring, onboarding, communicating and distributing company updates in real time.

SMS Delivery for Docusign eSignature can help businesses reach employees at their preferred communication channels. With a distributed workforce of both office workers and those out in the field, some employees won’t have a computer or WiFi access readily available. SMS Delivery is a solution that can benefit any HR organization, especially those that hire contractors and field workers. With eSignature SMS delivery you can accelerate the hiring process through real-time delivery of hiring packages sent directly to their mobile device, in addition to email, enabling them to quickly open and electronically sign documents wherever they are.
