Employee Communication – In an age where trust in organizations, especially large institutions, is consistently low, employees can be ignored only at some peril. They are the energy level that can make the difference in productivity. Customers can sense an organization that does not treat its employees well. All of this impacts competitive edge. Many communication factors impact the workforce – information, values messaging, credibility, and emotional connection. C4M's communications auditing thoroughly analyzes communications performance against both organizational expectations and national norms to provide a roadmap for improving communications vertically.
