Today’s DNA of Success attribute: Communication Habits
Employee motivation, satisfaction, engagement, and productivity are all attributes a company wants to sustain within its workplace. Workplace communication habits affect these attributes significantly. One of the reasons a company should focus on improving communication habits is because it brings forth increased employee productivity. According to Kristina Martic, a digital marketer and employer brander, on average, employees are 20 to 25% more productive in organizations with effective internal communication.
Making sure that your employees stay motivated can be established by effectively communicating to them what is happening within the organization. Kristina Martic also states that 85% of employees say that they are most motivated when management and leadership offer regular updates on company news. When your employees are informed they will be able to create better connections with customers and work harder to improve customer service.
As a leader of a company, be sure that you listen to your employees so they feel like they have a place where they can speak up and be a part of decision making. It is important that employees are able to connect with other employees to create strong ties with one another. Recognizing an employee’s good work also helps you to communicate with them that they are doing their job well. Always stay approachable and don’t neglect one on ones with your employees.
Creating effective communication habits within the workplace helps employees stay engaged, decreases the chance of critical information getting lost, and also reduces informational overload. Workplace communication will allow your company to continuously be productive and operate effectively.
