How has Coronavirus impacted communication in organisations?
Research by recruiting expert, Hays has shown that the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted communication as being the area that leadership in organisations needs to improve on the most.
Hays surveyed 16,000 employees across the UK with 43% of them agreeing that communication from leadership needs improvement in their companies.
Two in five of the survey respondents say that communication is the aspect of their organisation which has undergone the most change since the Covid-19 pandemic began earlier this year.
Simon Winfield, Managing Director of Hays UK & Ireland, comments: “Clear, effective and timely communication from leaders to their staff is even more important in a crisis, and it is clear professionals believe there is vast room for improvement. There’s no doubt that the swift exit from office settings and changing guidance made it difficult for leaders to communicate effectively, but as many plan for a slower transition back to the workplace leaders now have an opportunity to make an impact and drive engagement from their teams.”
Zoom calls have provided a bit of a stop gap over the last few months, but Zoom fatigue is definitely starting to creep in across many organisations – partly due to the poor quality of webcams.
With important messages to deliver and workforces to engage, now is the time to think about using high quality, recorded video, animation or professional live streams. All things which we at dmb films can support with.
