You have a lot on your plate with more messages than ever to get out to employees and less time and resources to do it. Your solution: make changes that will help you manage your workload. Here are a five things you can do to get better results with less effort.
|1. Repurpose content|
|Just like turning leftover chicken into a tasty pot pie, you can transform existing content into something fresh and interesting.
|2. Create unscripted town halls|
|Employees crave informal, unscripted meetings with leaders. So, give them what they want (while saving yourself hours of prep time) by ditching the speeches and boosting Q&A time.
|3. Make everything shorter|
|You do the math. A 150-word article takes less time to write than a 750-word article, and a four-page newsletter will be easier to produce than eight pages.
|4. Streamline your approval process|
|Getting approvals on content can often be a slow and painful process. Stop the "track changes" insanity by limiting your approach to no more than three approvers.
|5. Build a network|
|The best reporters use a network of sources to help them quickly track down lead stories. Why not take the same approach by developing your own internal communication network with people throughout your organization?
