Social channels must be differentiated from workplace communication. While these platforms may provide short-term benefits for employee recognition, knowledge sharing and daily decision making, the long-term impact on compliance and overall productivity can be damaging.
The importance of a single, safe, compliant and employee centric platform
Using a single employee-centric solution that can reach every employee no matter their working pattern or style is how businesses should tackle ineffective communication in the workplace.
If most of your employees use social media for their daily work-related tasks, it’s difficult to control that personal data and classified company information doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. It is also hard to guarantee that your employees can access their personal information, and that data and photographs can be deleted by request. Furthermore, when internal communication and knowledge sharing are fragmented and unstructured, it creates confusion, ineffectiveness, risk of violating GDPR and uncertainty amongst your employees.
Continuing to use a myriad of platforms for workplace communication will increase a potential misuse, as well as threats to security. Thus, using a single platform that can support internal communication and collaboration in a way that suits the employees is the only way to ensure that they remain engaged, and that information is readily available and secure.
