Communicate Important News Internally

An effective internal communications strategy on Agen ceme is essential when trying to encourage a cohesive team to work together toward the same goal. Especially when it comes to announcing important news to your team, using the right internal communications approach is of utmost importance. The right communications strategy ensures the intended message is clear and easily understood, leaving no room for error. That’s why we asked 15 entrepreneurs from Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) the following:

“What’s your best tip for internally communicating important news (key hires, funding, etc.) to the entire company, and why is this key to ensuring the message is communicated well?”

Here’s what YEC community members had to say:

  1. Be Transparent
    “Be transparent as much as you can and as soon as you can. Nothing is worse for morale than employees thinking they are not in the loop or an equal member of the team. This is especially true if the news will impact that employee financially, organization-wise or responsibility-wise.” ~ Anthony Saladino, Kitchen Cabinet Kings
  2. Communicate in Person
    “Any time a major development happens in a corporate setting, communicating the information personally is a major asset. I have frequently sent emails to discrete groups of individuals and then spent the time to personally meet with each group to deliver the news. This way you have control over your audience but also can deliver a personal feel.” ~ Ryan Bradley, Koester & Bradley, LLP / White River Consulting, LLC
  3. Build a Cadence
    “Build a cadence. We have a 10-minute all-hands meeting every day where we rotate through what different teams are working on and share company news. Especially since we’ve now gone all remote, this is the central “heartbeat” of our company and where everybody comes together. Monthly, we have a more formal all-hands meeting where we dive deeper into things that take more time.” ~ Tony Scherba, Yeti
