As Part I of our “Empowering the Remote Workforce” series, we take a look at your internal communication strategy. You, like many other companies are trying to navigate the muddy waters of telecommuting. After over a year since the great remote work movement, we ask you: Is it working for you?
When internal communication goes from in-person to on-line, it’s no surprise that companies are seeing a breakdown in workplace communication. Here are some of the biggest complaints we’ve been getting:
Almost overnight, employees started seeing a jump in workplace emails and phone calls. Not only are employees trying to fish through the sheer volume of emails, but they are finding it difficult to keep their private correspondence separate from their work.
It is hard to convey tone through text. When you had a problem, you used to be able to walk right over to Cheryl’s desk and clear things up quickly. Not understanding tone is a slippery slope to workplace drama.
As a result of employees missing important messages and misconstruing tone, many companies have overcompensated by having far too many meetings to make up for the breakdown in communication. But they are quickly becoming a time-suck in the workplace.
It’s no surprise that your employees have settled for basic internet and phone service for their homes. And why would they need it? Before the pandemic, they never had to upload at these speeds, or spend nearly this much time on the phone.
Combine all of your correspondence into one place. Your employees shouldn’t have several different forms of communication to reach each other. That’s how important things get missed!
Don’t rely on someone else to choose your service for you. Your business has come too far to be operating through some second-rate provider. Choose one that will give you cloud-based accessibility for all.
Give your employees the opportunity to respond in record time with not only fast provider speeds, but through different channels as well. (Maybe its quicker for them to respond in a quick voice message rather than text)
You wouldn’t need all of these capabilities if you were just a business of ten people, and vice versa, why should you settle for a small service package when you are trying to communicate with a company of 100?
The right technology for your business can make all the difference. Let Comporium help you with this adjustment period so that you have one less thing to worry about.
