Engage Your Remote Team and Empower Communication With Your Intranet

Is your team communicating effectively? Communication plays a key role in the way we work together and impacts our ability to be productive. When your team is remote, this is even more important. Here’s how you can use a corporate intranet to promote internal communication and engage your remote team. 

Loss Of Lateral Communication

Lateral communication (also called horizontal communication) is communication between workers at the same level within organizations. This was simple enough when all employees were in the same building. However, as organizations grow, lateral communication becomes increasingly complex. 

Today, as more teams are distributed, it’s even harder for people to connect. According to one survey, more than half of remote workers say that their top challenges relate to communication. While there are many communication tools available, most of them don’t meet the needs of today’s workforce. 

Communication For Today’s Workforce 

Right now, co-workers can’t just find each other in the office or connect during real-time meetings. Instead, they have to connect from home. The problem isn't communicating across offices. It’s communicating to remote workers and contractors who could be anywhere on the planet. This makes having a solid communication strategy critical. 

The Consequences Of Poor Communication

Communication plays a big role in the way that organizations operate and corporate culture. In fact, 73% of CEOs and CFOs believe that communication among employees is key to positive culture. If employees don’t have a simple way to connect and collaborate with each other, the entire company will feel the impact. 

Poor communication leads to decreased productivity, low engagement and even a higher rate of employee churn. However, this doesn’t have to be your organization’s reality. Modern intranets bundle the communication features your organization needs into a user-friendly experience.
