We are cruising to 2019’s finish line but before we settle our soft clothes and tend to hearth and home, let’s take a few minutes to consider a few ways to get next year off to a great start. If you’re looking to improve collaboration and unified communications practices in 2020, we’ve got a few hot tips to carry into January.
Buy-In From Top To Bottom
An effective communication strategy hinges on universal adoption. Rolling out new UC tools and other cloud-based interventions will only lead to dysfunction if there is no clear and consistent guidance from the higher-ups. The most effective way of getting your employees on board and keeping them committed to communication and collaboration? Leading by example. The nature of work is changing seemingly daily, and your job shouldn’t be any different. Embrace the changes you expect your employees to adopt. Use your UC solution to create stronger bonds with the people who make your company what it is. You’ll see results in the work they produce for you.
A Culture Of Communication
The workplace is more than a place of business. It is also, to a certain extent, a social realm. When your employees aren’t working, they are forging friendships and becoming a part of each other’s lives. This is a crucial part of any company’s culture, and unified communications solutions should be treated as another way for your employees to get to know each other, and for you to get to know your employees. There are a number of ways to do this: check in with your remote employees with informal video chats; kick off video conferences with ice breakers and team building exercises; and create designated channels in your UC solution’s chat app for casual conversation. Don’t forget to schedule in-person meet-ups, too. This can go a long way toward making your remote employees feel like an essential part of the team, thereby strengthening their connection to co-workers they don’t get to see every day.
Flexibility defines the modern world of work. People want to work when they want to, where they want to. And they want to do so on their own devices, with tools that are familiar to them. For these reasons, it is imperative that you seek out UC solutions that allow users the freedom to explore the methods of communication that jibe with their preferences. With a solution like Prime Call Cloud UC, users can connect anytime, anywhere, on any device. Don’t limit your employees to a one-size-fits-all solution. Give them every opportunity to excel.
