The importance of the on-boarding process can’t be stressed enough. All employees must be equipped with not only the information necessary to carry out their own duties but also the most up-to-date company news and objectives. Sometimes, however, this information can get lost through the various channels of communication.
That’s why it’s so important for those in charge of internal communications to focus on promoting a communicative work culture that not only lends a positive environment but ensures that all of its employees are well-equipped with the information that they need in order to successfully fill their positions. After all, how can you expect workers to be engaged and productive if they don’t understand the fundamental purpose of their job? Successful performance is entirely reliant upon this understanding. So, make sure every employee is able to answer the following questions once they step into a new position:
What is the company’s purpose? What do they offer, and how does this positively impact the consumer?
How do we implement the company’s overall vision?
How does my position specifically contribute to the company’s overall success?
What are the responsibilities of my team and manager?
Are the necessary tools and channels available for me to successfully carry out my job?
Does the company provide opportunity for involvement (e.g. events, initiatives, volunteer programs, etc.)?
How does the company stand out from its competitors?
Are there opportunities for me to learn and grow with the company?
The best employers maintain open channels of communication to ensure that their employees are able to align their efforts with their shared business objectives by providing clear information to help each and every person more effectively carry out their duties and feel valued. So, make sure your employees fully understand their positions for a more fulfilling and positive work life.
