Here are some benefits of better communication:
Increases engagement and productivity
Lends itself to a great employee experience and decreases turnover rates
Creating a culture with great communication creates transparency and establishes good relationships with both clients and staff. The better your team gets along and knows one another, the better they’ll work together on client projects.
We suggest is establishing a foundation from the very beginning. When you onboard a new hire, what’s the process to get them up to speed on their job, the office, the team mission, and the long-term goals? Staff training is great, and when your whole team is on the same platform and can access the same information employees will feel ‘a part of’ from the very beginning. An all-hands meeting can fill in any gaps or provide the space to do face-to-face check-ins.
The employee experience improves when an office is transparent and key information is readily accessible. Knowing how to contact their manager and schedule a meeting should not only be available, but it should be easy. Can employees schedule a meeting with any member of their office? Is there red tape to jump over? Accelo's Team Calendars provide the perfect platform for employees to schedule meetings with peers or managers. The transparency of sharing schedules creates an open-door-policy atmosphere, which lends itself to better project collaboration and success. You want your employees to feel comfortable expressing their ideas, goals, concerns, or anything else that’s on their mind.
In the workplace, better communication is vital for success and long-term growth. A cloud-based client work management platform provides the resources needed to make sure your team is on track and working together. Sign up for a free trial of Accelo today and see how it could improve your business!
