Nail Your Internal Comms: Say Goodbye to Engagement Fatigue

05 Jun 2024, posted in

Getting your internal communications right is crucial. It keeps your team informed, engaged, and in sync with your company’s culture and values. But there’s a big obstacle in the way – engagement fatigue. If you don’t tackle it head-on, it can wreck your team’s morale, retention and productivity.

People are your greatest asset. When things get tough, motivated employees are your anchor. Engaged teams are more productive, better informed, and more likely to go the extra mile.

The Big Challenge: Engagement Fatigue

Engagement fatigue is when your people get burnt out from too much, or irrelevant, communication. It leads to a disengaged workforce, and nearly 90% of UK employees have admitted they’re either quiet or loud quitting. Fatigued teams take more time off, underperform, and eventually leave the business, taking their expertise with them.

But why should you care? Because engaged teams boost your business. Companies with high engagement outperform those with low engagement. They are 87% more likely to have higher staff retention and are 21% more profitable.

So, what should you do?

From cross-team collaboration to sharing ideas, effective internal communications make a big difference.

Combatting engagement fatigue leads to a happier and more profitable workforce. If you want real boosts in productivity, you need a platform that changes the way you work. It stops you from bombarding your people with unengaging content and makes sure they care about what they see.

You need to leverage tools that offer real-time updates, personalised messages, and interactive features. That’s where we come in.
