Communication platforms for employees is crucial for your business
Posted on 12th November 2018 at 10:57
According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, employee communication is an essential part of business. It is important to further employee trust in the company and crucial for improving employee engagement. Yet, many organisations still have no clear strategy to implement an effective communication platform for employees.
Benefits of an internal communication platform
Having a centralised point for employees to go for news, updates and events, that’s updated regularly will contribute to build morale and teamwork. It can also be a place where remote workers, sales staff and part-time employees can keep up to date with what’s going on at the office, so they can feel they are part of the organisation.
With all the technology available these days, creating an internal content hub has never been easier. Gone are the days of the company intranet that could only be updated by a few tech savvy colleagues if they had some spare time. The idea of a content hub is that it is a place to share information with each other. This means, employees are not only the recipients of the information but can take part in curating the content. The focus is on interaction and collaboration.
A good content hub also offers the opportunity for communication between employees, such as an instant messaging facility. Ideally the content hub offers an app that employees can easily access though their smart phones, making it more likely that the platform will be used on a regular basis.
Examples of platform tools
Microsoft’s SharePoint is an example of an internal communication platform. It integrates with Microsoft Office and allows employees to share and manage content and knowledge and collaborate across the whole organisation.
