It’s been said — here and elsewhere — again and again: employee engagement is vital. And there are as many ways to improve engagement as there are reasons to do so. A Gallup poll from earlier this year outlines a few key strategies, including staffing quality managers, holding them accountable for their employees’ engagement and fostering investment among employees by giving them a voice in driving improvements.
Once these initiatives have been developed, once they’re in place, once measurement begins, a new task arises — keeping employees in the loop. In fact, thorough communication must begin well before this stage, even before a new hire’s first day on the job. The graphic below provides a handy breakdown of the different forms of employee communication.
