To help employees get the most out of their benefits, policies and programs, you need an effective HR communication strategy that focuses on “What’s in it for me?” We develop HR communication that not only informs, it also engages employees so they’re prepared to take action.

Benefits are very important to employees, but many don’t fully understand what they have or how to make the best use of them. We create employee benefit communication that helps people make smart decisions about medical plans, work/life programs and other benefits.

Communicating compensation to employees can be a challenge, since most pay and bonus programs are complicated. We develop simple, visual communication that creates understanding of bonus programs, incentive compensation, stock and stock option plans and executive compensation.

The challenge of communicating competencies to employees? Explaining exactly what employees need to do differently. We bring competencies to life for employees through plain language and real-life examples.

Communication plays an important role in engagement by helping employees understand how they make a difference and expressing appreciation for their accomplishments. We develop strategies that identify gaps, explain employee programs in plain language, and motivate and inspire employees.

To attract and retain outstanding employees, you need to show them how working for your organization benefits them. We develop an employee value proposition that creates a positive brand for your organization and reinforces why your company is a great place to work.

Let’s face it: Policies aren’t exciting. But they are important. We bring policies to life—through easy-to-understand handbooks and ongoing programs—so employees understand what the rules are and act accordingly. 

Helping employees learn new skills or build knowledge in key competencies supports their professional growth. We communicate learning and development programs such as business competencies, leader development, and required training (regulatory or compliance requirements).

It takes a lot more than a two-hour orientation to get new hires up to speed. We develop onboarding that engages new employees and sets them up for success. And we support the training session by developing strategies for managers and other supporters, using communication to reinforce actions and designing feedback methods.

Talking about performance with employees shouldn’t just happen at the end of the year—it should be an ongoing conversation. We prepare managers and employees to have these important conversations by developing effective performance management communication for such key steps as goal setting, mid-year check-ins and ratings.

Recognizing employees for their achievements instills pride and motivates them to do their best work. We build awareness for your employee recognition program through leader communication, engaging social media platforms, events and support for managers. 

To attract high-performing employees, you need to tell a compelling story about your mission, benefits and culture. We develop employee recruitment communication to convince top talent to apply for a job at your organization.

Employees are more likely to take advantage of a retirement plan when they know how it works and how it supports their financial future. We develop clear, simple retirement plan communication that helps employees understand 401(k) and other pension plans and changes to funds or providers.

Employees may be aware of your company values, but do they know what to do to support values? We communicate values to employees by focusing on the impact to employees’ day-to-day work, using stories to bring values to life and simplifying complex concepts.

Effective wellness communication empowers employees to take responsibility for their health. We increase participation in your wellness program by defining objectives, developing key messages and strategies, creating communication tools that engage employees and measuring results.
