With lockdown now confirmed as reality for the coming weeks, many companies are faced with the need to operate with their employees working from home.
With more employees working remotely, being agile with the use of technology plays a big part in allowing a much more progressive move forward. In all of this, communication is so important and now more than ever we need to ensure we regularly engage with our employees and motivate and stimulate learning to ensure productivity remains high during this difficult period. Having good communication and the right tech and processes in place becomes less business critical and more business survival.
Neon use a lot of different ideas and tools to ensure clients can communicate effectively with their staff, encourage motivation and continue to learn wherever they may be.
Good communication is an essential tool in achieving productivity and maintaining strong working relationships at all levels of an organisation.
Delivering clear lines of communication is at the centre of any program we create and deliver. Without clear communication channels and a communications plan how does your network know what is going on, how do you build trust and increase morale and productivity?
In the current situation it is even more vital to keep your employees up to date via emails, team Skype or Zoom catch ups and one-to-one catch ups with colleagues.
We know incentives aren’t always about monetary rewards and we understand people appreciate them, but recognition is just as powerful a tool. A simple “thank you”, “great piece of work” or “you’re doing a great job” can go a long way and in uncertain times it can mean even more.
For many industries at the moment, working from home is not an option however, it is still important to engage with our employees in any way we can.
This is a perfect time brush up on learning or improve on a specific topic area. Learning stimulates the brain and creates ideas for improvement, change and development. We use many different methods and work with many different sectors to help companies find a solution that works for their employees.
We know one size doesn’t fit all, which is why you need to make sure you tailor your programme to your business, your staff and your budget.
