Are You Talking to Your People or at Them?
Employee communication, the way it’s practiced in most organizations today, is simply not working. This problem is not confined to town-hall meetings—it’s an issue with print and electronic newsletters, intranets, poster campaigns, and nearly every other channel you can think of. Employees are increasingly hitting the e-mail delete button, avoiding the internal home page, missing Web meetings, and showing up to face-to-face forums only because they feel they have to. Why does this matter? Because now, more than ever, you need to reach, motivate, and engage your employees. You can’t survive this recession unless employees understand where your company is heading, are committed to play their part, and know what they can do to help you get there. But if employees tune you out, there’s no chance they’ll know what to do—or be motivated to do it.
