A guide to driving engagement with your employees worldwide, through effective translation and localisation of your internal communications.
An inclusive workplace is one that values the individual and group differences within its workforce and makes them feel connected. By speaking your employee’s language and embracing cultural nuances, it can help to build the inclusive culture your business is striving for.
To make sure your internal communications engage with employees, you need to be tuned into their culture and language. By literally speaking their language, you will ensure you are on the same page and that your workforce feels seen.
A study by the Australian Institute of Company Directors found that organisations with inclusive cultures have a clear advantage over those that do not. They are twice as likely to exceed financial targets and eight times more likely to achieve business outcomes. (Bourke, Which Two Heads Are Better Than One? 2016)
