Make your company's Staff Meetings most effective by incorporating recognition and learning exercises each time you hold a meeting. Following are several ideas and instructions to implement them:
"State of the Union" message by the CEO (ten minutes)
(An overview of the company's progress and recent achievements – coming in 2004)
Service Anniversaries (five to ten minutes)
By celebrating the service anniversaries of your employees, you're showing appreciation for their hard work and loyalty. You strengthen that message by honoring an employee for the length of service with the company in front of their peers – it helps ALL your employees feel valued.
On the personal side of the board, employees could share a photo of their new grandson, post a "for sale" sign, or participate in a game. Your staff is more likely to view the company as part of their family if they are welcome to share part of their personal lives.
Help your employees stay on task by reminding them of company-wide plans and goals. Give your employees a sense of the big picture so they can direct their work in a more focused, productive manner.
A company bulletin board facilitates quick communication, personal connection, and increased productivity amongst employees.
The more information you share, the more involved your staff feels.
A centrally located company bulletin board promotes company communication and contributes to company unity and employee productivity. Employees feel included and connected while reading memos and postings for upcoming activities, or sharing a light moment learning about each other.
