Successful organizations tend to have successful internal communications.
In the present-day, digital age, the world of internal communication tools is progressing very quickly. Companies are starting to realize the positive impact effective communication and engaged employees have on overall business performance.
No matter what size your organization is, or what it does, internal communication is essential for planning, operations, productivity and transforming the kind of corporate culture that accomplishes and maintains continued success.
In fact, and not surprising at all, 83% of respondents to a recent ATD poll said that communication is the most critical success factor for managers. Another study by Gallup reveals that employers are usually up to three-times more engaged when managers hold regular meetings with their teams.
The evidence to support employee communication is strong. So, what does it take to build successful internal communication? Here are some helpful tips:
The Way to Make it Work, Is to Not Make it Work
Make communication easy and fun with modern internal business networking software that encourages collaboration. Look for features that have a real-time social feed, company announcements, employee directory, direct messaging and even group chat to get your teams talking.
Keep Everyone in Sync, Regardless of Where They Are
Teams are stronger together, even if they are far apart. Employees should have the ability to share information and keep everyone in sync at any time, anywhere and on any device.
Unite Your Team to Amplify Talent
Bring employees together. Bring out the best in them and enrich your company culture in the process. Amplify the office atmosphere and experience through increased employee recognition and engagement. Share the joys of a thriving company culture with remote colleagues.
