Entrepreneur-Employee Communications - by Ravi Patel

 

Entrepreneurs are normally not formal people and often "manage" by walking around their facilities. They stop and talk to employees to find out what is going on. As companies grow, it becomes difficult to maintain this personal level of communications with employees.

 

Entrepreneurs still need to maintain a closeness to their employees. It might make sense to have a system to do so.

 

Have you considered having a weekly one-hour round-table with a few employees to discuss company issues and their ideas? The employees should be systematically rotated so everyone gets a chance to communicate with the Entrepreneur/CEO. Entrepreneurs might want to also consider monthly breakfast or lunch meetings with randomly selected employees to make it more informal.

 

Be creative in reaching out to your employees and maintaining open communications.
