Embrace change. Empower and engage employees.
Mobile devices. Always connected and always on. No one is waiting for information; information is 24/7. We text, Skype, Google, FaceTime, Snapchat, post, blog, tweet.... and talk. Conversations cross multiple platforms and go beyond their intended audience. It's not overwhelming; it's exhilarating. It opens possibilities and reaches corners of your organization quickly and effectively.
Employees are your champions and best sponsors -- especially when given the tools and trust to share what they know. Employees are your first and best customer. They are not just part of your communication plan; they are the plan.
Social media... no longer optional and often more effective than email.
Gone are the days when organizations focused their social media only on customer campaigns or electronic employee bulletin boards. Social media -- and the digital tools evolving to support it -- has become one of the most effective two-way conversation mechanisms in the employee communication arsenal.
Let's sit down and talk about how to harness the right digital tools to ensure your organization is at the virtual water cooler.
According to Fast Company magazine, an employee who feels inspired at work is nearly 125 percent more productive than a satisfied one. Let us help you reach, engage and inspire your employees.
