Using strategy and measurement to break the barriers to internal communications [Infographic] 

Effective employee communication is an essential ingredients to growth. It essential to your employees, to your managers and to your shareholders. In a survey carried-out by the Hay Group, it revealed;

“that companies with highest level of engaged employees generate 50% more in returns for stakeholders and investors than their competitors.”

Effective communication in a business place and the financial performance go together; in fact, they are interwoven. Towers Watson recently conducted a research and it states that companies that are highly effective and efficient at communication are 1.7 times as likely to get more results than their peers.

However, if you ask an internal communicator for a list their biggest challenges are, I’m sure you will hear that getting a seat at the strategic decision making table and being able to measure up are high on that list. In 2014 we conducted a survey with Ragan Communications and found that only 4 out of 10 internal communication departments find it easy to get support from the those at the top and in 2016 when we asked this question again, we found that much hadn’t improved.

So, the question is, why does the internal communication sector still finding it difficult to be seen, and identified as a strategic player?

You can see from our newly published infographic picture entitled ‘Internal Communications Measurement and Strategy’ that 36% of expert internal communicators admit to having no particular strategy in place.

Surprisingly, 12% are still not measuring any of their communications! As a good communicator how can you know which elements of your communications strategy you can improve?

5 Reasons Why You Need To Monitor Employees

Monitoring employees might not sound like a great idea to the people that are actually being monitored by things such as voice recorders and hidden spy cameras but there are many good and positive reasons why a company should be monitoring employees on a regular basis.

Whether you think it is best practice or not, here are some reasons why many businesses will keep an eye on their employees.Why must company monitor employee with Binocular Spying Gadget?

It’s in their best Interest

Although you might get a few people disagreeing with the above statement, ensuring that the company is being watched on a constant basis keeps things fair across the business. If an argument between management and a certain employee is held then footage will show exactly what started it and who is really responsible, there is no way a manager can lie about what happened. Surely this is only a good thing for individual employees?

It protects the company

If someone is trying to sue the company for something that hasn’t happened and there is no video footage then it is more a case of who has the better attorney. If the footage exists then the company has pretty much guaranteed themselves a victory over a case that shouldn’t even be in existence.

This is just one of many examples on how this goes about protecting the company, losing a lot of money from a suit that is a lie could have a strong negative impact on the rest of the employees too!Employee Tracking and monitoring

Makes it a safer place to work

With video recording equipment in place across the company you will find that a violent incident between two or more employees is far less likely to happen. If something does happen then it can be sorted out legally very quickly and a decision on who to discipline can be made very quickly, this is great for showing other employees what happens when violence occurs in the business.

Ensures company growth

Most people wouldn’t think that a higher growth within the company can come from keeping an eye on employees but what it can do is show who is working and who isn’t. If you are based in an office you can easily see who is sitting on Facebook all day and who is hard at work.

It will also assist on knowing who is staying later at work (especially within the larger companies) and this of course shows just who is the most dedicated at a company.

Improves Client Satisfaction

If you are placing phone recording software on your phones within the business you are ensuring that every phone call that is made through to your company and to a client is recorded. This means that you can really work towards making sure that your clients and customers are kept as happy as possible by improving the service by spotting common issues.

It also helps when customers speak to management and claim that they have been abused over the phone (when in fact nothing at all as happened) as you can quickly prove either way!

So there you have it, proof that monitoring people in the working environment is a good idea, thoughts on the matter?
