Keeping your employees informed about important developments within your organization is critical to ensure you have a cohesive team where everyone has the information they need to do their work.
Unfortunately, sending emails to communicate with employees isn’t always effective.
Email overload affects many people – with the average worker receiving 121 emails every single day. There just isn’t enough time to open and read and respond to everything. It’s little wonder that in North America alone the open rate for emails is around 34.1%.
And if you’re receiving lots of emails, chances are you’re sending a lot too… sometimes saying the same thing over and over again!

Send internal email to the right audiences
Targeting communications to specific audiences helps to reduce information overload… there are some messages that the entire organization does not need to receive. Ensuring you have the right audience is important and helps to keep information flowing.
Learn more about audience segmentation in internal communications.
For example, you may need to communicate changes to accounting software to members of the finance team. Or you may have some building works that are affecting staff in an office in one city of a large organization.
