communication on policies - how easy are they for new hires to find the information they need?
Imagine you are a new hire; what impact does your employee communication landscape tell them about you and your company?

For example, do you assume a certain level of knowledge in order to be able to draw relevant information out of the intranet? Do the internal brochures answer a newcomer’s questions, or do they just add to the ‘first week confusion’?

How does the new hire ask a ‘stupid’ question?

Where does the new hire go to find out more about your company, the industry, the resources available to help him/her and the company succeed?

Hat tip to Jane Shannon for her excellent ‘73 Ways to Improve Your Employee Communication Program’.

    It's the job of the employer to explain all the things to his workers. He/she should know the terms and conditions his company has to offer.
