One of the biggest challenges organizations face throughout the employee lifecycle — from first contact with candidates through exit interviews — is communication. Though the means of communication are proliferating (texting, Twitter, phone, email, Snapchat etc.), organizations still grapple with integrating employee communication into their systems and measuring its effectiveness.

Candidates often fall into a black hole during the hiring process; new hires’ expectations are not met in onboarding and employees yearn for manager feedback. The impact of this ineffective communication is an organizational culture that makes it difficult to hire and retain talent.

There are connection moments that are critical to the employee experience and can determine the extent to which they will become engaged or disconnected. Explaining growth opportunities to new hires and employees are key examples. High-performance* organizations are much more likely than other organizations to do so with new hires (61% high-performance vs. 47% other). And, high-performance organizations are four times as likely as other organizations to be effective at explaining specific growth opportunities to employees (41% high performance vs. 10% other).

Discover how to recognize and make the most of those key connection moments so your organization can build a thriving culture. Attend our webinar, The Key to a Great Culture: Effective Communication Throughout the Employee Lifecycle sponsored by GuideSpark, on Thursday, November 8that 1 pm eastern.

*High-performance organizations are those that have seen improvement in most of their key performance metrics over the past year.
