4 Ways Internal Communication Strategy Will Boost Your Business
As a leader of your organization, you inevitably have had discussions around what can be done to streamline internal communications. Whether you work in human resources and are looking for ways to attract top talent and create smooth onboarding processes, or you’re the CEO or general manager of your organization and are looking to provide clarity around the vision and goals of your organization, internal communications is a key element within almost every business objective.
While companies work with PDP Solutions for a wide variety of reasons, we’ve found that there are four fundamental benefits that positively impact every single one of our clients:
If you stopped what you were doing right now and visited each of the departments of your organization, how many employees would be able to tell you what your business goals are for the year? And, how many of them would be able to pull up their key performance indicators to show how their work ties into those goals?
Creating a strategy around internal communications ignites drive and focus around organizational goals. It allows your entire company to truly work as a team, and to make on-time adjustments to accomplish those goals.
When first meeting with our clients, we often find that there is communication overload. Emails, instant messaging, company newsletters… the list goes on and on. The problem with having so many different communication channels is that vital information often gets lost. Furthermore, having to navigate through each of these channels decreases workplace efficiency.
Strategic internal communications should allow all employees, across all shifts, and in each department to easily access important information in one central location. Instead of managing multiple communication channels, employees can then access everything they need to do their job effectively in one spot.
There’s no denying that it is getting harder and harder to attract and retain top talent. The nationwide skills gap with individuals entering the workforce makes it difficult for companies to find qualified, ambitious employees who will stay with the company long-term. Internal communications should support employee recruitment and development. From showcasing company culture during the recruitment process to giving direct access to the resources that new employees need to thrive, your internal communications strategy can directly impact recruitment costs and increase company profitability.
Finally, a strong internal communications plan can connect employees and departments to organizational goals. It enables everyone to work as a tightknit team regardless of the number of shifts you manage or the number of locations your organization has. By clearly outlining key performance indicators, deadlines, and processes, you’ll ensure that everyone has the information they need to work efficiently to meet the needs of your business and your customers.
