In the same way that your culture and values are the glue that sticks everything together, clear communication must also run as a thread through all that you do. It is not a subject than can be taken lightly, nor left to a handful of people to implement. Great internal comms is difficult to achieve and maintain, though it becomes considerably easier if everyone knows how to do it and plays their part. Great comms has to be the responsibility of everyone in the organisation; it’s up to leaders to facilitate this.
Despite its vital role in business success, communication is one of those things that can always be improved. If you ask any employee how they’d rate their organisation’s internal communication on a scale of one to ten (with ten being ‘it’s brilliant’), you’d be lucky to raise a five in most organisations.
Good internal comms is a key step to driving true employee engagement and productivity leading to business growth and profitability.
