Your Bulletin Board is Busted

CCook | October 4, 2020

In business, especially if your company has been around for awhile, it can be easy to do things the way you’ve always done it. That is, until the pain to stay the same is greater than the pain to change.

One incredibly frustrating problem we see wreaking havoc on companies due to sticking with the status quo is poor communication. The culprit? The incredibly outdated bulletin board.

The world changed, and our brains are no longer trained to pay attention to static signage. If you think about what you read each day, how often are you reading something off a piece of paper these days? Odds are good, it’s rare.

So, if you’re still using a bulletin board to communicate with your employees, you might find yourself saying things like, “If people would just read…” or “I made it perfectly clear…” or “Didn’t you see…?”

Companies with bulletin boards find themselves in an endless game of repetition. You wrote the memo, you posted it, but you never get the traction you’re looking for.

You only have so many hours in the week, so if you’re spending those hours repeating yourself in order to communicate, your business is losing money and you will only feel more stagnant in your job.

The cure for this problem is digital signage. Digital signage is an effective, affordable way to grab the eyes of your employees and get your messages across without giving yourself a headache.

Digital signage is the perfect way to communicate with the 21st century mind, drawn to screens and better able to recall information communicated digitally with appropriate repetition. Digital signage syncs across your entire business, whether you’re in one small warehouse or a multi-site location. It’s easy to update and simple enough that anyone can use it.

We believe that communication doesn’t have to be hard in a business, and we have some great solutions to help solve your communication problem. Click the button to download our free Human Resources Guide to Communication – our gift to you:
