  1. Communicating with employees about business goals: In a study, Jive reviewed the areas in which a company's employees feel they are least well-informed and how they want to be informed in a more focused and targeted way. A quarter of respondents would like to be more closely informed about the company's objectives and priorities. A third of respondents said they wanted to learn more about the organizational news, problems and successes. Regarding the area of ​​company changes such as restructuring, 35% reported that the state of affairs had knowledge gaps.
  2. To offer employees a personal perspective: Even more important is the personal perspective: for 42% of those interviewed by Jive, their employer's information policy on their own career opportunities and advancement opportunities is insufficient. The largest group of respondents, 46%, said they received too little feedback on the recognition of their own efforts and achievements.
  3. Field dissatisfaction: In the medium term, the survey results show an urgent need for action in companies, both for decision-makers and their HR managers. Employee dissatisfaction damages the company in the long term. At 42% and 46%, almost half of the study participants stated that they were not satisfied with the feedback culture of their employer. Over the long term, these failures in internal communication result in significant problems for managers. Employee dissatisfaction inevitably leads to a higher fluctuation rate, which in turn increases the cost of hiring and training employees. In addition, with the loss of every employee, a certain amount of entrepreneurial competence is lost, which, especially with more frequent periodic intervals, cannot always be compensated for in a short time.
  4. Interpreting instead of consuming: Companies can use the intranet to inform their employees, for example. If they are not only to be provided passively, but to be integrated, silent consumers should become active “prosumers” who, as part of the communication process, not only watch but also participate, social intranet software programs are the solution. Networked work increases employee engagement and productivity. New colleagues can be incorporated more quickly, the integration of an appreciative feedback culture promotes the positive and high-performance corporate philosophy.
  5. Promote digital knowledge exchange: There are no limits to the exchange of knowledge and mentoring: the transfer of know-how and information links colleagues from different teams and promotes the performance of all parties involved. The smooth and fast workflows make the collaboration easier and more productive. Corporate communications are gaining an energy boost that promotes employee satisfaction and thus contributes to higher productivity. The digital linking of all workstations to a collaborative collaboration hub is a classic win-win situation: the work of tomorrow is already done today.

Conclusion: Digital communication facilitates cooperation

Internal communication should not be Problem become. Rather, it should be the focus of entrepreneurial activity. The instruments for this have long been available: social networks have changed the way we all communicate. It has become faster, more immediate, more direct.

Various communication channels are used for this – mostly digital. You can usually always be reached via this. We no longer just exchange ideas, we network. This connection can be derived from privacy transferred to the business world - internally and externally.
