The recent outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted businesses all over the world. Maintaining open lines of communication with employees is even more important during such periods of uncertainty.
But even in times of “business as usual,” business is better when people are connected.
A 2018 Gallup study found that connected companies—those organizations that are connected from top to bottom, where teamwork and collaboration is not just encouraged but is built and designed for, and business feels like a community—are 21% more profitable, 17% more productive and have 40% less employee turnover.
Watch this webinar on demand to gain insights on:
