More effective internal communications strategies, identify what sort of information our employees want to hear, how they want to hear it and when. The best way to do that is to break down our strategy into four parts: Why? What? When? How?
At the very heart of any internal communications strategy is the monumental task of making yourself heard through the vast digital information overload. We are bombarded from all sides with sound bites, adverts, texts, social media, emails, phone calls. And your internal communications have to fight their way through all of that.
Covid has provided a catalyst for us to undertake the most significant reinvention of work in generations. We have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to really think about the future of our workplaces and imagine something much better than it was before.
A critical element when considering the future of the workplace is the role that it plays in an organisation's culture and core values. The physical environment in which we work sends out so many cues about a company's culture.
There is a lot of talk at the moment about the future of the workplace, with many pundits saying we can do without it. I have to say, I disagree. I had a fascinating chat recently with Tracy Brower about the future of the workplace and why it is still an essential part of our lives.
Why behavioural safety is so important in manufacturing industries, why the right training is critical – and why one size doesn’t fit all. The Big Picture People’s approach to behavioural safety training goes way beyond a quick presentation.
Behavioural safety is a proven and effective way of positively impacting safety behaviour, thereby reducing or eliminating accidents and dangers to long term health. To work effectively, it has to become part of your organisation's culture.
Now is the perfect time to bring everyone back together. Having felt disconnected and rudderless throughout the crisis, your staff will now be looking to the organisation for clear guidance and direction. Communications need to be simple, unambiguous and easy to understand at all levels
The last few months of lockdown, uncertainty and working from home will have left many of your staff feeling adrift. No matter how many zoom meetings, telephone conferences or remote catch-ups you have had, there is a very strong chance that the majority of your workforce will be feeling rudderless, disconnected, out of the loop.
All businesses will have to define their new normal and communicate this effectively to their workforce. If your organisation is going to be ready, now is the time to start planning your post-COVID communication strategy.
