Organizations thrive on the open sharing of ideas and information. In the modern age, the easiest way to implement open sharing techniques is through software tools, writes entrepreneur Amy Rees Anderson.
She suggests using technology to create these at your company:
1. CEO daily message board. Message boards can be used as transparency tools to share organizational information and engage employees.
2. Employee directory. Directories can help new employees understand how everyone fits into the organization. By including job descriptions, titles and contact information, you can make the transition process easier for new hires.
3. Employee discussion board. This allows employees to post comments and concerns and respond to others with helpful tips. Managers can also observe employee comments and get a greater understanding of the organization’s.
