Three Ways to Promote Enhanced Communication in Organizations

Hanna Wilson, HR Tech Outlook | Monday, May 03, 2021

Since workers have different contact styles, needs, and job requirements, a multi-channel approach to business communication is the best approach.

Fremont, CA: The sending and receiving of information is referred to as communication. This two-way information must be obtained, interpreted, and processed as planned to be successful, which is where many companies fail.

Communication is challenging both inside and outside the workplace due to outdated systems, outdated procedures, slow applications, and obsolete platforms. Failure to communicate effectively may result in underperformance, misinformation, mistakes, inefficiencies, and disengagement.

The first step toward improved communication is to ensure that your colleagues and staff can communicate effectively. This is accomplished by:

Channels

Since workers have different contact styles, needs, and job requirements, a multi-channel approach to business communication is the best approach.

Tools like digital office screens, printed communications, and video conferencing can support your existing phone systems, email, and intranet communication channels. Don't forget to consider a new employee's needs as well. As your company expands and your teams grow, everyone needs the communication tools they need to implement, fit in, and do well.

Collaboration

Communication is a two-way lane, which means you must make it easy for people to send and receive information. Employees can talk about jobs, tasks, or daily work life using online two-way collaboration tools, regardless of where they are located or whether they are online at the same time.

Video conferencing, face-to-face communication, and document sharing tools are several other ways to facilitate two-way collaboration.

Resilience

Regardless of power outages, workplace closures, network problems, or global pandemics, internal communication networks and equipment must be available at all times. Create a contact continuity plan that outlines how you'll keep internal and external communications running if your usual channels go down. You can boost the resilience of your internal communications by:

Update the communication apps and devices regularly to avoid downtime or security problems that prevent them from functioning.

Employees can maintain communications from home using remote communication resources such as instant messenger, email, and cell phones.

Using an IT distribution company to link your communication devices to your network and enable data to flow through multiple channels.
