Strategic internal communications plan
It is important to develop a detailed plan that outlines specific messaging and tactics for communicating with prospects and existing customers. A clear and strategic internal communication strategy is the engine that drives employee engagement.
Consistent two-way communication across all levels of enterprise
Fortitude Plethora states how it is vital to establish a two-way flow of information that consistently carries information throughout the firm. Doing this will eliminate inaccuracies and empower workforces with appropriate information.
There is no frequency standard for communication. Send information too frequently and it gets lost in a sea of messages; too infrequent and employees may lose confidence. Make sure that communications are relevant and targeted to avoid unnecessarily contributing to information overload.
Great content starts with a clear goal and thorough understanding of the audience. The core message needs to be consistent at every level but it is important to tailor messages and delivery to the appropriate audience to increase understanding.
Robust communication channels
Make communications available to employees in a variety of ways, but always ensure face-to-face communication is available. Fortitude Plethora encourages offering employees a choice in how they access information to create a sense of empowerment and respect.
Eliminate a fear of repercussion
Some individuals can be wary of expressing themselves honestly, fearing for the security of their job. Fortitude Plethora states that it is important for managers to establish a safe place where employees can voice their opinions without fear of repercussion.
Measure, measure, measure
To know whether communication strategies are effective it is important to regularly ask employees, reveals Fortitude Plethora.
