Properly managed internal communication is the perfect engine for smooth operations of the company. A well-informed employee who knows exactly what tasks to perform and why, is much more motivated and engaged. But how to handle communication well when you work with temporary workers, freelancers, or part-time employees? With the right tools, it’s easy! Take a look at three tips to keep both field and home office workers in connected.
Follow the principles of proper communication even online
Whether digitally or face to face, communicate openly, on time and truthfully. Introduce employees to the company’s vision and clearly formulate your goals. Don’t hide important things happening in the company and always answer (even unpleasant) questions. Although it might be advantageous to meet online, always keep the possibility of personal contact. Through internal communication, you build the trust and loyalty of your co-workers, avoid disappointment, and give them the opportunity to provide feedback.
Take advantage of digital possibilities
In the online world, a number of sophisticated solutions are being created that make communication easier. Corporate intranets, sharing interactive videos on social networks, internal online chat and much more are available from anywhere and anytime thanks to the Internet. This is especially true considering nearly every employee has instant access from their mobile phone.
Choose the right tools
The enormous flood of new tools, applications and software is fascinating, but it won’t save you on its own. You need to be able to choose the ones that will really work for your business. Ask where, how often, and how you want to share information with employees. What channels will you really use effectively? Be consistent so that employees learn how to work well with new technologies, and do not use different platforms for one purpose. The ideal mark occurs when you can integrate most of the communication into your own internal system. The familiar user interface will make work easier for you and your employees.
Internal communication is not just about sending bulk emails. Properly set up mechanisms will support relationships at work and satisfied people are the basis of the company’s success and stability.
