We are fortunate that today’s communication technology makes the transmission of information easier than ever before. As an employer, manager or property owner, leveraging mass notification system technology and gaining a competitive advantage through effective communication is a necessary goal. A mass notification system can help deliver effective communication which has four main components:

  • Having something of value to say
  • Sending information in a timely fashion
  • Verifying that messages are being delivered
  • And lastly, listening to your audience

Does your organization use a mass notification system? How effective is your organization at communication?

As a real world example, think for a moment about how internet technologies have changed communication for our troops overseas. Children getting to see their moms and dads through a video chat or a wife getting to read emails from her husband are heartwarming images. These events lead to greater peace of mind and comfort for the children and military spouses. So what?

Believe it or not, there is a key similarity between a family’s relationship with their loved one overseas and the relationship you have with your employees, staff, contractors and tenants: the need to feel empowered by effective communication. And a mass notification system is an essential empowering tool.

Why is effective communication using a mass notification system so important?

RedFlag’s all-inclusive mass communication system is a great way to use digital communication technology to achieve effective communication at your organization. The RedFlag mass notification system can help you increase satisfaction, peace of mind and yes, comfort among the people in your organization — whether they are an employee or a tenant. Don’t overlook these important intangible benefits of effective communication but keep trying to improve them. As employers and managers compete on many aspects to gain loyalty from their workforce, focusing on effective communication and intangible goals with a mass notification system can help you gain a competitive advantage. A competitive advantage in internal communication will help you retain your best people and attract others like them — supporting the drive for increased revenue and growth.

By using the RedFlag mass notification system, you can communicate more effectively. Another way to increase satisfaction and gain a competitive advantage is to be proactive. Live up to your workforce’s expectation that you will keep them informed by using a mass notification system. You must also plan ahead. Start by measuring the number and type of internal inquiries you are presented with. Then, through proactive communication, see if you can reduce the number of inbound calls and visits you receive over time. Effective communication is not a one-way street. Your employees, staff, contractors and tenants will be more satisfied and responsive if you show them you listen.

Do you want to create a competitive advantage by using a mass notification system?

The RedFlag mass notification system should save you time not be a burden — and a little prior planning is all you need to keep improving your communication effectiveness. Achieving effective communication with a mass notification system is always going to be a great way to build a strong relationship with your workforce. Small changes in the way you communicate today can help you yield large increases in satisfaction, peace of mind and comfort for your current and future workforce. Give them sustained superior performance in communication and customer service — create a competitive advantage that’s hard to beat with the RedFlag mass notification system.
