Maintaining Internal Communication Published Apr 3, 2020 Communication with your members is critical, but are you also maintaining clear communication with staff? Working remotely is new for many churches and can make internal messaging challenging.Here are some tips from the community. Content Channels: Using content channels in Rock gives you the ability to quickly add staff updates. This keeps the most current and relevant information at the top of the page. LCBC made this a priority and built out content channels on their intranet for staff messaging during the first week they worked from home. Video Updates: Frequent, short staff meetings improve connection and accountability. Frank Grand and the team at NewSpring utilize daily calls: “We are doing a morning video meeting to get everyone on the same page. During the meeting, we answer two questions: What was the most important thing you did yesterday? What is the most important thing for today?” You can then easily link to or embed recorded meetings or leadership update videos onto your intranet page. Chat/Instant Messaging: Tools such as Slack and Microsoft Teams provide a method for getting questions answered quickly and easily, without clogging email inboxes. We've heard from several organizations that had a long-term plan to move to Teams, but successfully expedited that to a one week move.There are many tools available to help keep your staff connected. Consolidate as much as possible and don't forget to build out your intranet page as a major hub for internal staff information.
