How to Write Effective Copy for Your Staff Communications
Effective and efficient communication is one of the most important things for companies of all sizes and operating in different industries. If your internal communications are poorly organized, you will start getting in trouble fairly quickly.
That’s why it is so important to ensure that your HR department knows how to communicate with your employees effectively. Moreover, it is also necessary to teach all your employees how to communicate correctly for maximum efficiency. Hence, here’s how to write effective copy for your staff communications.
How HR Can Foster More Open Communication in the Office
Effective communication is the linchpin of high-performing businesses. Open communication can improve trust in the workplace, speed up decision-making, minimize errors, and improve the health and well-being of staff.
However, many offices suffer from poor communication. Departments are split into silos and some staff members do not feel that they can raise concerns and queries without fear of reprisal.
Human resources can fix dysfunctional workplaces by promoting more open, honest communication. HR has the power to bring people together and can act as a catalyst for more, respectful, regular communication.
How Communication Gaps Affect the Recruitment Process
The process of recruitment becomes seamless when there is no communication gap between the recruiter and candidates. In order to effectively engage in the recruitment of appropriate candidates, it is imperative to eliminate any communication gaps.
When efficacious communication is ensured, the employers are able to swift through the bulk of candidates and track down the most appropriate one for the vacant post. Hence, when communication gaps are least or absolutely abandoned, the recruitment process is boosted, and simultaneously the candidates open up about their experiences, expectations and willingness to grow.
The adverse effects of the communication gap are dual-natured. That is, the employers and employees both are under its influence. As far as the recruitment process is concerned, communication matters a lot to carry it smoothly until the candidate is onboard.Read full post

Using Tech to Boost Employee Communication

Do You Work With a Jerk?
If so, your work life must experience some difficult and challenging moments and we can empathize because we frequently hear about jerks in our research.
A jerk is a person who is unlikable, cruel, rude, small minded, who talks behind other people’s backs, and basically treats other people badly. Perhaps you work with some ‘prima donna’ employees who appear to get away with every trick in the book because they excel at their jobs. They can be life sucking and toxic so it is no wonder researchers study jerks to better understand the impact they are having on our work experience and how that impacts productivity, and job satisfaction. As employee researchers, we often see the impact jerks have on overall organizational performance and how they can wreak havoc on productivity and morale.

Ways To Heal Employees Caught In The Shame Blame Game
As humans when someone accuses, blames or shames us most of us react in one of six ways. We will either withdraw, become defensive, lash out in a counter attack, beat ourselves up internally, be a people-pleaser in order to counter the inner feelings of never being good enough or, we look for a solution to the problem that results in positive change (which we all recognize is the healthiest response but not the easiest to do).Read full post

Body Language And How it Impacts Employee Engagement

U.S. anthropologist and body language expert Ray Birdwhistell discovered decades ago that 95 percent of communication happens in our subconscious minds and then it is expressed through our body language. Taken one step further, Linda Talley, a current expert in body language, says that a person can say something which may not be true but their body language will always tell the truth.Read full post
