WorkJam: Next-Gen Workforce Management

Top 10 Employee Communication Consulting/Services Companies - 2019

Low employee engagement often leads to poor business outcomes and productivity. A recent report from Gallup, a U.S. analytics and advisory company, reveals that a staggering 87 percent of employees worldwide are disengaged at their workplace. The reasons for such disconnect boils down to factors that include lack of open communication and transparency, failure in employee recognition, and poor cross-functional relationships with colleagues and the management. 

While the idea of instant communication isn’t new to solve these issues, the reality of its meaning has changed due to the hyper-connected lives we live today, where so much is happening at once. Internal communication in the workplace is no exception. To connect with today’s workforce, messages need to be brief and precise. With HR’s ever-increasing responsibilities, ensuring enhanced workforce collaboration and communication isn’t always easy. This is where having a partner that can take care of the aspects from moving the needle on employee engagement surveys to managing large-scale communication campaigns can make all the difference.

With a comprehensive understanding of these new developments, HR Tech Outlook has compiled a list of top 10 employee communication consulting/services companies to guide firms in harnessing the power of innovative HR technologies to tackle today’s business challenges. 

We are glad to feature Boston-based StitchDX, a digital experience agency that aids organizations to achieve their strategic goals and drive revenue growth through a brand-first approach. The company works with its clients to get a deep understanding of their businesses and needs, and then weaves powerful narratives with proven marketing and productivity strategies to help the firm build awareness, engage employees and prospects, and deliver more revenue. Another featured company is Benefit Communications Inc. (BCI). As a modern-day alternative to the legacy HR system’s transactional experience, Nashville-based BCI offers HR system enhancements for effective benefits communication, education, and engagement.

With several innovative technological capabilities and success stories up their sleeves, these firms are constantly proving their mettle in the employee communication space.
