Improve Internal Communication

Reducing Email Overload. Research shows that it takes 64 seconds for staff to refocus and get back into the work they were doing before an email interruption. Sending out ‘All Staff’ group emails (IT outages, general news and administration, marketing and HR updates etc.) can detrimentally impact staff productivity, workloads and stress levels. 

Ban "All Staff" emails. It is possible to completely eliminate the need for ‘All Staff’ emails by directing all these messages into an automatically generated Staff Newsletter. Due to section categories and a scanable summary format, reading the Newsletter consumes 80% less time than opening and reading the equivalent separate ‘All Staff’ emails. Contributors, who can be staff and communications team alike, can still quickly and easily write their own messages which are then automatically populated into an engaging Newsletter format with centralized editorial controls. 

Bypass Email! - Email is not required to deliver any of the SnapComms internal communications solution.

Improving Understanding 

 
It is possible to increase the readership, understanding and acceptance of important messages as follows:

 

Leverage existing resources (e.g. Intranet). It is possible to leverage the power of existing information sources, such as the intranet, by sign posting new or relevant content to specific target audiences. Updates can be pushed out to targeted staff groups as scrolling headlines on the desktop, pop-up alert messages, staff newsletters and/or sequencing interactive screensavers.

Desktop alerts, which deliver pop up visual messages onto computers and mobile devices, can ensure fast and reliable cut-through of urgent/important business updates.

Screensavers can be turned into sequencing digital signage to raise staff awareness of business initiatives, updates, events etc.

Video messages can be also be delivered as desktop alerts to increase the visibility of senior managers and to maximize employee understanding of business strategy.

Staff Surveys - the SnapComms staff survey tool can be pushed onto staff computer screens and mobile devices to measure understanding of business strategy and to gather employee feedback.

Contact center staff, who may not have regular email access, can be kept informed in a dynamic yet non-intrusive way via scrolling text on their computer screens. Time spent in team meetings (non call time) can be reduced by providing news and information updates via the news ticker channel or via an electronic staff magazine that aggregates messages from all over the business into a single scanable format.

Revitalizing the Organization

 

Implementing Change Successfully.

 People tend to find it easier to accept change when they understand the reasons for the change and have a belief in the need for the change.

Important Updates on Desktop Alerts

 

Focus on the future. The SnapComms channels of internal communication provide a range of dynamic, interactive visual formats which can be used to create and promote a vision of the future. Once employees begin to focus on, and feel part of, an organization’s future, new business strategies can be implemented more successfully.

Fast updates. Mobile and Desktop Alert messages can provide immediate (or pre-scheduled) updates to targeted staff groups and be sent to coincide with important announcements. This prevents staff hearing about changes to the business from rumors or outside sources first (which can detrimentally affect engagement levels and limit the ability of staff to respond to customer questions).

Monitor the pulse. During periods of change, Staff Surveys provides the means to regularly ‘temperature check’ and measure employee understanding around the need for change. Pulse Surveys allow regular measurement and benchmarking in order to ensure that the tactical implementation of a new strategy is on track as well as signaling points at which course adjustments might be necessary.
