Internal communication has a great impact on employee productivity, cross-departmental collaboration, employee motivation, employee engagement, and organisational alignment.
If you notice that your employees aren’t engaged, don’t effectively collaborate, or are not aligned with the company’s vision, one of the first things you may want to take a look at is your internal communications strategy.
Employees who are happy with their employers tend to stay in the same job for a longer time. And unhappy employees begin to look elsewhere for work. By tracking a company’s internal communications, you can better understand job satisfaction and potential turnover rate. When employees feel like they’re “in the know,” they feel a greater sense of respect and trust from their employers. If that level of trust and respect is missing, then employees will lose their enthusiasm for a company. This reduces productivity and eventually leads to employee turnover.
Internal communication plays a key role in a company’s success and overall morale. By effectively tracking the progress of the goals you implement, you will improve the efficiency of communication and the engagement at your company.
