About this Whitepaper

This whitepaper explores the ramifications of ineffective communications and how they negatively impact employee engagement.

It identifies points of failure from an operational and employee experience perspective and presents helpful anecdotes and examples to create a shift that your employees will like and your management will adore.

  • Avoiding single points of failure
  • Executive comms and how to lose employees by not really trying
  • Misalignment
  • The consequences of feedback failure
  • Beyond employee recognition: Respecognition!
