Less than one-third of human resource executives are satisfied with current channels of communication
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – April 5, 2016 – EmployeeChannel, Inc., today released a new study that revealed a significant gap between the effectiveness of traditional communication channels and the needs of today’s contemporary workforce.
Entitled “The Missing Piece in the HR Technology Landscape,” the study is based on a recent survey of human resources executives regarding their companies’ communications strategies and the effectiveness of current channels of communication. The study suggests that companies too often find themselves delivering generic communications through traditional channels while employees want real-time, personalized, and contextual responses to their requests for information.
“From the study, we learned that HR professionals rely heavily on pushing information out using older technologies, such as email and intranet portals,” said Steve L. Adams, CEO of EmployeeChannel. “And, despite a host of HR technology solutions aimed at creating more efficient processes, a comprehensive employee communications solution remains a missing piece in HR automation. The study points to the need for an employee-focused solution that will provide highly personalized communications and an integrated view of employee- and company-specific information from a single point of access.”
