Employees who feel undervalued or disconnected have been leaving organizations far more frequently in the past two years, and it is up to leaders to reverse this trend. In April 2022, we sat down with CHROs to discuss these ongoing challenges and best practices to address them. Following is a summary of our discussion.

And, because most of our communication will be done virtually, by phone and email, taking the time to be deliberately clear is critical.
Establish (or re-establish) a regular meeting cadence with your team and each individual
Make yourself available to your team
Be aware of assumptions: They will throw you off track every time!
By not underestimating the power and impact of simple, clear and consistent communication, leaders and organizations will see the payback both immediately and over time. Regardless of the economic picture, market landscape or political environment, effective communication is a foundational component of a healthy and thriving organization.
