Our company has the honor of being
I mean, we witness how
business internal communication affects people on a personal level
and we see it happening in a very positive way. Engaging employees is a simple as acknowledging them as
, then recognizing and celebrating their contributions on a business or personal front.
To prove this point, here are several real life stories about people who were previously disengaged and who subsequently became
because they were recognized in the company’s newspaper. The content for the
module — a core component of the PDP software solution, by the way — is driven by an editorial board that determines stories to be published each week — business or human interest stories. Through the use of PDP’s communication tool, these employees are now more interested in the business and people around them and are generally far more approachable. A consequence of this is a likely
increase in productivity
. After all, when we feel good about our work environment and ourselves, we perform better.
Companies are made up of people. When you genuinely acknowledge people — and underscore their contributions to the organization’s mission — they will perform for the company at their peak.
