How Trinidad and Tobago Companies Can Enhance Their Internal Communications

In the fast-moving world of corporate communications, one often overlooked aspect is internal communications. It's not uncommon to hear remarks like, "No one reads internal communications." But why is that?  Today, we are assessing the common pitfalls of company-to-employee communications and exploring how Connective Pros can transform your internal communication strategies.


High Frequency with Irrelevant Information:

One of the primary reasons internal communications get brushed aside is the sheer volume of messages employees receive, often filled with irrelevant information. Employees spend  28% of the workday reading and answering emails.  With statistics like that, it's no wonder they prioritise emails with action items and quickly view or completely ignore those they see as “less of a priority”.  


But what is the solution to this? It’s important to understand targeted and concise messaging. This is done by carefully assessing the audience and their needs.  Thereafter, by streamlining content and ensuring relevance, you can help ensure that every message resonates with your team.


Lack of Engagement and Interactivity:

Static emails and newsletters can quickly become monotonous.  Especially, when audiences don’t find the information relevant to them or their work. 


This requires interactive elements to drive engagement. That way you foster a two-way communication channel and create a dynamic environment where employees actively participate and contribute.


This is also where companies must consider different ways to communicate with staff, emails are not going to work for every employee. For example, factory-based staff, therefore, new channels must be considered.  Town halls, presentations that can play on an “Employee Updates Screen” and more can be utilized. 


Static Imagery and Ill-prepared Content:

The visual appeal of internal communications plays a crucial role in capturing attention. A well-thought-out and strategic visual guide for this content helps to ensure that all communications are professional and easily identifiable to the target audience. Leveraging compelling designs and well-crafted content can make every communication visually appealing and impactful. 



Excessive Wordiness:

Lengthy paragraphs and verbose language are a surefire way to lose your audience. It also doesn’t consider the various literary rates at different levels of the company.  This one-size-fits-all approach never works to the benefit of the company. 


The communication must be concise, yet comprehensive to all audiences to convey the key information effectively. The focus is on delivering clear, actionable content that is easy to digest and retain.


Understanding Trinbagonians' Reading Preferences:

Trinbagonians, like many others, value function over leisure when it comes to reading company communications.  Therefore, companies must recognise this preference and tailor communication strategies accordingly. Emphasizing practicality, relevance, and value in every piece of internal communication, ensuring that it aligns with the reading habits of your team.
