Information is the oil of an organization. When all employees are well-informed, the organization operates fluently. Organizational hick-ups occur as soon as information isn’t spread and consumed as it should be. Nowadays, traditional communication channels, a diverse workforce, information overload, and a lack of a communication strategy cause significant challenges. How does your organization manage employee communication?
Inform everyone effectively
Nowadays, employee communication professionals face plenty of challenges. Giving information the attention it deserves is no longer possible through traditional channels such as e-mails and the intranet. This seriously harms information visibility. A diverse workforce of desk, non-desk, and remote employees facing constant information overload makes employees harder to reach than ever. A strong communication strategy, combined with visual communication software is key here.
Strategize Employee Communication
Strategic employee communication is critical to organizational success. The Netpresenter Communication Principle offers guidance here. This framework focuses on categorizing communication into four quadrants and acting accordingly. It embraces the concept of versatile communication, spanning from fun to serious. Each quadrant requires its own communication approach, which makes selecting the most effective strategy easy.
Boost employee communication visibility
Shifting away from traditional methods like lengthy newsletters is essential to enhance communication visibility. Netpresenter enables you to activate communication in several ways. First, by leveraging all screens in your organization, you can make your communication more visual. You can also switch from pull to push communication, so you are able to deliver information actively to employees rather than depending on them to go to it themselves. Additionally, you can measure and adapt, assessing the effectiveness of various strategies to optimize visibility eventually.
