Regardless of their work environment, employees want to hear from HR more frequently.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – JULY 12, 2017 –EmployeeChannel, Inc. (http://www.employeechannelinc.com/), a leading provider of mobile apps for employee engagement and communication, today released the findings of a new study exploring communication requirements of non-desktop, remote, and office workers. Despite their different work environments, all three segments share a common view of the importance, frequency, and channels of communication. They also share remarkably similar expectations of both their HR teams and employers.
Titled “What Every Employee Wants From Their HR Team,” the study is based on a recent survey of U.S. workers. Among a number of findings, the study revealed that employees would like to hear from their HR teams more frequently and consider open communication to all employees one of the top initiatives they would like to see their organizations focus on.
“We went into the study believing that we would find different communication requirements for non-desktop and remote workers when compared to the requirements of corporate office employees,” stated Steve L. Adams, CEO of EmployeeChannel. “It turns out that—regardless of their work environment—people are just people when it comes to communication. They all highly value communication from HR and would benefit from a new digital approach to employee communication.”Highlights from the report include:
The survey ran in the first quarter of 2017. There were responses from more than 1,200 U.S. workers, with approximately 400 participants responding to every question in each employee segment (non-desktop, remote, office). The participants represented a cross-section of employers, from small businesses with less than 50 employees to enterprises with 20,000+ employees and included employees with a wide range of educational experience from high school to post-graduate work. The survey also included U.S. workers from multiple industries with a variety of professional personae. To download the full report, go here.About EmployeeChannel
