If given the opportunity to change one thing about their jobs, most employees in a recent survey said — perhaps unsurprisingly — that they’d change their pay. Communication, however, took second place in research from Peakon.
Helen Calvin, chief revenue officer for Jellyvision, weighed in with five steps for HR teams to make their communication more effective:
- Personalize the message
- Avoid jargon
- Keep the message clear, uncluttered and responsive to anticipated questions
- Send messages when relevant
- Communicate to all, not just those undergoing change.
