Communicating effectively in times of crisis
Posted On May 20, 2020
After weeks of having to work from home, remote team collaboration and communication has become an integral part of a business, especially in these times of crisis. Employees now rely on their companies to have the right communication tools to not only manage, plan, and complete their tasks but also to help them feel motivated and supported during these challenging times.
But with a sudden shift in work culture and procedures as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, it’s becoming more challenging for businesses to ensure that their work from home set up and communication strategy is enough to set them up for success or survive through this crisis. That’s why it’s important to know how to maintain active collaboration amongst your team and having an easy and positive communication flow with the right tools.
With poor communication, you won’t survive
At a time where we all feel disconnected from everything and everyone, it’s easy for employees to disengage and perform less than usual while working remotely, especially by relying mostly on email communication. So how do you make sure that you maintain effective productivity for business continuity? Be aware of some of the negative effects from poor communication at your workplace:
Having poor communication with your team at this time means that it can then be negatively reflected with your clients.
- Low employee productivity
When there’s poor communication amongst your team, it causes employees to be more inefficient with no passion or motivation to perform at their best, especially while working from home.
With lack of communication, employees would tend to miss team meetings or deadlines and be unsure of what their priorities are, resulting in poor delivery of their tasks.
It’s already a stressful time for everyone. Keeping a strong and positive attitude and communication will be the stress reliever your team members will need to work better.
Getting the right tools for effective communication
We get it. While working remotely, it can be challenging to establish a good communication plan amongst your team. But emailing your employees or team members it’s just not enough anymore. And especially in difficult times, it gets easier to feel lost and confused with an overload of emails and having unclear visibility of conversations related to projects or topics needed to complete each task.
