You send out internal emails, but nobody seems to care. You post flyers in the break room, but they get torn down. You really need to up your internal communication strategy, but have no idea how. If employees are continually ignoring your messages, can you really force them to pay attention? Not necessarily.
But, you can go where they their eyes are. Send your messages to the one device that everyone (probably) owns. Did you know that over 90% of all texts are opened within five minutes or less? Imagine using SMS as your main employee communication channel.
