Large enterprises face ongoing challenges including brand reputation, employee retention, and changing employee expectations for the work experience. Further, the increasing number of deskless and distributed workers require that organizations find a better way to connect with an increasingly dispersed workforce.
At the heart of these shifting dynamics is employee communications. It has become a leading priority because employee engagement has moved from being a tactical activity to a strategic business value model. It is not just about managing people but fostering a positive work culture, an empowered employee experience, that will in turn directly impact organizational growth.
Our new report asserts that as enterprises adjust to this new climate, modernizing their employee communication and engagement strategies are critical in moving their business strategies forward.
