People are Burned Out
In 2021, email is still the most commonly used channel for internal communications.*
This is out of step with the consumer world, where short-form and microcontent win out**.
56% of colleagues spend nine seconds or less looking at newsletters and emails, with 45% spending 1-3 seconds!***
"Despite the proliferation of digital workplace tools, productivity in most developed countries is barely growing. Meanwhile, the number of technology systems used by employees is increasing."
- Josh Bersin, Founder of Bersin and Associates
"Recent research shows that 27% of workers believe they waste 1-2 days per week on irrelevant emails, meetings, and messages" - Microsoft
The New Social Contract
By prioritizing the following elements of the New Social Contract an organization has the potential to get more from its workers.
- Receiving accurate and honest communications
- Clear job responsibilities and expectations
- More common benefits such as medical coverage, help saving for retirement, paid time off for vacation and sick time
- Working for leaders who mean and do what they say
- Having the tools, training and resources I need to do my job
"The ability to use digestible voice recordings and podcasting to cut through the visual noise created by streams of text chat, and full mailboxes is a game changer." - Alex Graves, CEO Silicon Reef
There is a reason that overly-polished leader communications tend to generate apathy or even hostility. They are too clean, not human at all – the missing component? Emotion.
Wellbeing is top of the agenda – encouraging employees to step away from their screens/ incorporate movement into their working day are increasingly important as stress and burnout numbers rise.
A well-balanced communications ecosystem is inclusive of diverse communication preferences – visual, auditory, written and experiential. Introducing audio into the communications mix adds value quickly and cost-effectively.
