Managing Employee Communication in a Time of Crisis

Are you sick of the word unprecedented yet?

How about unsettling? Troubling? Unimaginable? Stressful? Turbulent? Challenging? Difficult?

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has left many of us thumbing through the thesaurus – both the digital and the old-fashioned print kind – as we scramble for different ways to describe this crazy moment in time.

We’re running out of descriptive words.

The pandemic has turned everything upside down. (Oh, and there’s another overused phrase.) Everything about this crisis is strange. That includes how we talk about it. And you know what else has entered a brave new world?

The way we communicate.

Engaging every employee has never been easy for organizations. That’s especially the case for large, global companies. But now? With shelter-in-place orders forcing so many people to work remotely, workforces have become more dispersed than ever. Traditional methods of face-to-face huddles, on-site digital signage, posters, and printed newsletters no longer are options.

It’s a struggle to cut through all the noise coming at employees to reach them with the information that’s truly important.

Yet it also has never been more essential to reach them.
