Internal Communication Boards

No matter the size of your office, it’s vital for staff members to communicate with each other. Having strong internal communications helps your business cultivate engaged employees who share the company’s vision. To that end, communication boards placed prominently within your office or business give your employees the ability to know what’s happening within various departments and what everyone is working towards. Internal communication boards can take various forms, from production schedules to mission statements to motivational messages, but they all work towards the same purpose: an engaged and efficient workplace.

Why they’re important

Disengaged workers from various industries and in various roles often have one thing in common – they feel as though there is a lack of communication between managers and employees. Far too often, top level staff will work on projects without any lower-level employees providing input, and in some cases managers may not even communicate to their employees that certain work is being done. While not everything needs to be shared with everyone, making important information readily available and easily readable allows employees to feel as though they’re not left in the dark.

Sharing messages and information

Message boards are one of the most straightforward ways to share information around the office. A large sign that allows staff members to read and write messages, placed in an area that workers will routinely occupy, gives everyone in the office a chance to know what’s happening with each other or with the company in general.

Personal messages announcing upcoming birthdays, special occasions, or achievements let employees know that they’re thought of and valued. On the more professional side, internal communication boards can provide reminders of important deadlines, upcoming meetings, or changes in workplace policies.

Tracking progress

Another type of internal communication board is a scoreboard of sorts. These signs can show, for instance, daily, weekly, and monthly production goals for a factory. By providing statistics out in the open for all to see, it’s easy to monitor productivity and keep people on task.

Displaying targets for groups of workers can help foster teamwork, as everyone knows that their contribution is being put towards a common goal. These sort of internal communication boards can also be a motivational tool to encourage greater efficiency.

Help employees gain a holistic view of their workplace

Earlier we touched on the topic of employees and management not communicating as much or as effectively as they could. Some offices also have a problem with excessive segmentation – where groups of employees work independently of other groups. This can leave workers unaware of what is happening around them. Internal communication boards that describe what each department does can help employees understand the roles of other staff members and what work each department is engaged with.

Provide your own brand of motivation

It’s easy for managers to walk into a poster shop or an office supply store and purchase a few motivational posters plastered with stock images of sunsets and skydivers. But motivational signage that includes a company’s unique mission statement and its unique philosophies will help encourage employees to do their best, without the impersonal feel of generic posters.
