Communication Best Practices
Employee communication needs to come from the heart to be effective. Thoughtfulness, effort, and repetition are the most important factors in employee communication.

Editor’s note: We’re doing a short, two-part series on the battle between Facebook’s Workplace and Slack in the internal communications tools realm. Read part one (written by yours truly, the editor) here. Jeff Myhre, an expert in entrepreneurship, Human Resources, and more, gives his take on the Workplace/Slack War based on his experience below:
The great corporate communication tools war is upon us. When Slack entered the marketplace, it changed how corporate communication tools were used in the workplace.
