We are all looking for quick and dirty communication tips that we can actually put to use today. Whether you are using Ving for your communication or another tool, these tips apply.


Follow these 5 principles of communication and your team will be thanking you.

 

1. Make Content Both Relevant And High Quality


People get a lot of emails, tweets, and notifications on a daily basis. Make sure that your communication stands out and is worth their time. Often we get into a rut with how we communicate. For example, if we send newsletters and meeting updates, we rely on the same old same old. Make sure that your communications are all relevant and of the highest quality. Do you always include all of your staff because it’s easier? Do you rely on the same format and updates because it’s always been that way? It’s time to re think to optimize recipient engagement. 


2. Don’t Send After Hours

It happens to all of us. Sometimes we take our work home and we finish something up in the evening or over the weekend. The urge to send something on the weekend or late at night can be there — hold off. It is important to establish a work-life balance and increase employee wellness, the next time you are working late hold off on inviting people to your Ving or sending that email.


3. Proofread Everything Before Sending

Often we get in a hurry. Slow down! Before sharing or sending a file make sure to review the entire document for any errors, tone and accuracy. Your audience will appreciate it. This goes for everything text, video, audio, etc.

 


4. Keep It Professional But Light

There really is a happy middle. It is important to keep your communication professional but that does not mean it has to be dry. Find the balance between entertaining and serious.

 

5. Be Current

With social media it can be hard to keep up with current events but it is more important than ever to keep up with your communication. If you are delivering material late or information that is outdated the people reading your communications may stop altogether. So keep up with current happenings at your office.

"Ving Understands What Safety Managers Need to Improve Training"

One of the biggest problems I've had with safety training platforms is making the training easily accessible on mobile job sites, making it easy to upload in-house training, and technical issues with outdated software. All of those problems have been solved by Ving. It's well-thought-out and easy-to-use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love the QR code option. For example, you can print a QR code sticker that explains how to inspect fire extinguishers and post it next to the extinguisher so anyone doing monthly inspections isn't guessing based on training that was six months ago. They can review the training immediately.
