Communications professionals are often busy at the best of times, with so much going on that needs to be communicated to employees.
Many industries face significant challenges in keeping non-desk based employees in the loop with important information. This is because, when it comes to internal communications, many organizations rely on methods such as emails, intranet, and other platforms that are easy for desk-based employees to access as they sit in front of a computer every day.
Company newsletters have been a traditional vehicle for delivering news and sharing information with employees within organizations for decades. They’re aimed at keeping readers up-to-date with important developments, celebrating success stories and sparking discussion.
Employees are often too busy attending to their daily tasks that it can be very difficult to effectively capture their attention during office hours.
The novel coronavirus (Covid-19) has caused a significant shakeup to the way we work in a very short period of time.
Internal communication is important in every organization, large and small. Sharing information, news, advice, directives and celebrating success and achievements help to form a cohesive team environment where everyone is working together towards the same common goal.
Having effective internal communications systems in place is critical for any organization. It ensures that everyone is on the same page, important information is shared easily, helps to build a positive culture, increases productivity and profitability and boosts the morale of the workforce and levels of engagement.
As a manager of people, you hope that every employee you’re responsible for overseeing will be a super star capable of following instructions, working with minimum supervision and will do their job properly with minimum intervention.
