No. 3 of: 8 Ways to Increase Employee Engagement
Communication is such a fundamental part of the employment experience and plays a pivotal role in creating a unified and energized company culture.
Yet, fewer than half of employees (49%) believe the communications they receive from their company make them feel inspired or excited.
Companies should “strive towards passion-filed communications, consistently delivered across the hierarchy in a way that is open and receptive to employee voice.” (ORC International’s Global Engagement Trends 2016).
Of course, the definition of engagement includes being actively aligned with the company’s goals. However a recent Bain & Company study found 60% of employees didn’t know their company’s goals, strategies and tactics.
Remember, communication is a two way street. If employees feel involved and empowered to share their ideas and opinions at work, and if they feel those opinions make a difference, their individual performance can increase.
In fact, employees who feel their ideas and suggestions matter are more than twice as likely to report a positive employee experience as those who don’t (83 percent vs. 34 percent).
Communication is so vital to the reward & recognition programs that Allgo operates for clients, we spend at least 50% of our time designing our programmes and technology to enhance the communication side of the programme.
