3. Maintain internal communication
One of the biggest workplace stressors is the feeling of being left in the dark by management. You can avoid that stress by maintaining regular communication and being open about company news. Take the opportunity to provide answers about common questions regarding topics such as working from home, dealing with children at work, sick-leave policies and more.
What are the best channels for internal communication?
You can use multiple communication channels, like email, corporate intranet boards and even office bulletin boards, but be mindful not to overwhelm employees. Uncertainty increases stress and can lead to “cognitive freezing” from your employees, so be sure to do everything you can to alleviate it.
Whether during a crisis situation or organizational restructuring, employees need additional support and a sense of stability. Using a unified platform like a corporate intranet can help effectively centralize common communication mediums — like news feeds, email, surveys and digital town halls — under one roof. That way your employees know where to look for the most recent information and know they can trust the source.
