There are 12 essential elements of a successful internal communications strategy:
1. Effective employee-directed communications must be led from the top
Effective communications require the active commitment and approvals of senior managers. It is not enough simply to develop a 'vision statement' or formulate in general terms the values by which the company lives. Behavior is what counts. Managers must be seen to be in a manner that is consistent with the ethos they are promoting.
2. The essence of good communications is consistency
At all costs, avoid following fashion and tinkering. If you try to improve communications and then fail – because your messages are inconsistent or are 'good news only' – things will not quietly settle back into the way they used to be. You will inevitably have created expectations, and may have to live with the consequences of having deserved those expectations.
3. Successful employee communications owe … Read More
I'm definitely a gadget person. Anything new in gadgets, I have to have it while it's still hot and brand new in the market, and I have tried most things out there. The Sennheiser MM 400 Bluetooth Headset is my latest discovery and my latest obsession. A bit on the pricey side, but it describes every penny in my opinion.
You'll be wondering why: well, for quite a few reasons. First of all, the Bluetooth connection that the Senheiser MM 400 is able to make is superb! High quality and strong! I would not be exaggerating if I said it's better than any other Bluetooth device I have ever tried, not to speak of how long it is able to hold that connection for. Again, the performance is so much superior to most other Bluetooth devices I have tried. And believe me, I've tried a lot of them!
Then the … Read More
There is nothing more frustrating that dropping your prized cell phone in a liquid, be it the kitchen sink, bath tub, coffee, tea, beer, or a swimming pool. When this happens the immediate feeling is one of despair and annoyance. But do not give up hope, all is not lost. It is possible to fix cell phone water damage and once again get it working as good as it was before the accident occurred.
If you have dropped your phone in any liquid the most important consideration will be how long it has been immersed for and how quickly you can find a solution. If your phone has been in a bath tub of water overnight the chance of it working will be slim as the circuit board is likely to have been irreparably damaged, but if it has only been in the water for a short time there is … Read More
Ringing one ear, or unilateral tinnitus is also identified with other names such as tinnitus in one ear or buzzing in one ear. There is also the bilateral ringing in ears which means that the buzzing sound is heard in both ears. In unilateral ringing in the ear, the victim hears the disturbing noise only on one ear – usually the left ear. The distressing sound or noise is usually hissing, buzzing, roaring or ticking in nature.
Both ringing in one ear and bilateral tinnitus are subjective in nature, and normally, only the patient hears the distressing sound. If a second person must hear the sound, a medical gadget such as stethoscope is used. This is usually the case when the physician is trying to diagnose and identify cases of tinnitus in the affected person. But in the pulsating type of tinnitus, a nearby person hears the noise also; however, … Read More
The Apple iPad has been out for a few months now and it's really starting to gain some popularity. At first it was thought of as just a new tech gadget that people would let collect dust after the novelty off off. But the iPad is showing that may not be the case. Every week that passes brings out a new app with a new way to utilize the iPad. The following is a quick iPad review and I'll also show you how you could get a free iPad.
One of the things that makes the iPad so interesting is that it's almost like a laptop computer. But it kind of is a cross between a Macbook and an iPhone because of the apps. There's no keyboard and there's no phone capabilities but those are the only two things that make this different from an iPhone or a Macbook. It's … Read More
In the current age we live in, technology has become an important component. Every day there is some new gadget or software that makes lives easier and improves on the technology and software that already exists. Making lives easier is not, however, the only role technology plays in our lives.
Technology is playing an increasing role in education. As technology advances, it is used to benefit students of all ages in the learning process.
Technology used in the classroom helps students adsorb the material. For example, since some people are visual learners, projection screens linked to computers can allow students to see their notes instead of simply listening to a teacher deliver a lecture.
Software can be used to supplement class curriculum. The programs provide study questions, activities, and even tests and quizzes for a class that can help students continue learning outside the classroom.
Technology has also become part … Read More
