There are several ways for HR to promote active communication within the organisation:-

According to a 2008 Job Satisfaction survey by Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), communication between staff and senior management ranks among the top five very significant aspects of employee job satisfaction. Organisational communication, both internal and external, may often be within the compass of the corporate communications department, but it also makes up part of HR’s people management responsibilities.

Keep it regular. Consistent updates signal to employees that management acknowledges their role as stakeholders in the company who should be kept abreast of recent developments and happenings that may affect their part in the organisation. Creative communication. Establish multiple routes of communication such as user-generated staff magazine, online discussions and intranet updates.

Shifting gears The responsibilities of Human Resource personnel today have expanded from being mere custodians of standard people management processes to strategic business partners that help steer growth and innovation of an organisation. As an integral feature of every business function’s purpose, HR is expected to be knowledgeable about the design of work systems in which people contribute to and succeed in. Several HR services would be impacted – from devising work positions to hiring practices to reward and recognition schemes.

Build a feeling of community and involvement. During an economic downturn, employees can be hit by low morale. Communication helps to inform and safeguard the workforce as well as protect the organisation’s reputation. Make giving feedback easy. Keep lines of communication open for staff to air their views and offer suggestions. Companies can go a step further to show how how problems will be identified and addressed.

Such extensive HR functions require strong organisational communication to promote active participation and cooperation from staff from all levels, particularly during tough times. Yet, an online poll by The GMP Group revealed that only 21% of respondents said their organisations were improving staff engagement during the current recession with more regular communication from senior management.

Measure and benchmark engagement. Measure and benchmark employee engagement regularly so that HR is able to address areas for concern. HR is able to catch dissatisfaction early and a chance to counsel affected staff as well.

HR should recognise the important role it plays in facilitating open and consistent internal communication as it has a direct impact on employee engagement.

Research suggests that effective organisational communication has significant impact on financial performance. Watson Wyatt’s 2008/2009 WorkUSA Report said companies enjoy 26% higher employer productivity, in addition to lower turnover risk and are more likely to attract top talent when their staff are highly engaged. Companies also gain 13% total returns to shareholders over the last five years.

Communication is a two-way street Communication skills of organisational leaders are especially critical during tough times or when there are organisational upheavals. Top-down directives might amplify existing barriers between management and staff, who desire opportunities for their views to be heard. In this respect, two-way communication is essential to encourage innovation and spur greater employee engagement, loyalty and productivity. Two-way communication persuades expression of opinions, ideas and interests of organisational practices, policy and strategy from employees. And entwined with employee engagement, employee voice calls for acknowledgement and responsiveness of HR and management. Management and HR can create opportunities for staff thus by encouraging upward communication and involving staff in company decisions. As professionals in people management matters, HR should develop and nurture a culture of open communication between management and employees. Effective communication, however, should also be combined with just policies, systems and management behaviour to establish positive ties between staff and organisation. Communicate to engage Studies have shown communication to be significant in encouraging good employee-organisation relationships. It clearly demonstrates the transparency and fairness of the company’s corporate practices – a boon, surely, to its best employer branding efforts.

A better bottom line

In today’s highly competitive business milieu, management and departments cannot stand as silos. Close collaboration is needed not only across different functions but also between management and staff to solve organisational challenges and achieve agreed objectives. Transparency in communication as well as adoption of suitable communication tools are some of the critical factors which contribute to effective organisational communication, and thus, employee engagement and productivity.

CAREER EXPERT Dear Chris, Over the past few months I’ve read many different reports that say there are skills shortages in Singapore and employers are finding it difficult to find skilled candidates. I am currently employed as a Marketing Manager for a FMCG company and have been with them for more than ten years. I would now like a new challenge and I have been actively looking for senior level marketing roles but to no avail. I thought it would be easier in the current market. So can you tell me, where are the jobs? Thanks, Aileen Dear Aileen, Thank you for your letter and I’m sure there are many other job seekers who are also wondering where the jobs are. We are certainly experiencing skills shortages across many different sectors here in Singapore but that does not mean it’s easy for everyone to find work. We have just released our Quarterly Report for July to September so I can tell you the good news is that there are many firms confidently investing in sales and marketing talent. This is happening across many industries and organisational sizes. The primary area of demand however is for front line Sales Executives with a solid track record and good industry contacts. Employers are currently focused on sales professionals that will have an immediate and measurable impact on the firm’s bottom line.

We have experts in Sales & Marketing who know the current trends and will keep you up to date with the roles available. And the better they understand your career objectives the more likely they are to be able to help you achieve them. Just keep them informed as to which jobs appeal and which do not. Good luck with your search and please do contact us if you need further advice. You can also view the full quarterly report at Regards, Chris Mead General Manager HAYS Singapore

Within the FMCG market companies are investing heavily in their brand and product management ranks. Across the IT&T, Services, Retail, Logistics and FMCG arena, there is a lot of movement in the sub $200,000 salary market. Hiring dynamics in this segment have been dominated by the need to secure candidates with specific experience in an industry, product group or geographic market. There are opportunities at the senior and executive level. The hybrid Sales Director and General Manager seems to be a favoured solution for cost conscious organisations. But the difficult part as you know is actually finding the jobs and before your competition. There are a number of resources available to you that you may not have considered. For example, many opportunities become available through referrals and “word of mouth”. You should also talk through your career goals with a Recruitment Consultant. At this stage in your career it’s certainly important to reconsider your long term objectives. What will I want to get out of my job in the next five years or so? • Should I consider other industries? • Do I need to study? If so, what for? • What are my individual priorities?
