Anyone who’s attended a powerful conference or an especially engaging company summit knows that feeling that bubbles up post-event. It’s an energy that’s almost palpable, making you that much more eager to innovate in your work. Town hall meetings hold enormous potential to spark lasting employee engagement.Effective town halls not only energize employees, they can also create a sense of connectivity between employees at every level of the organization. But town hall meetings don’t automatically achieve these effects. Immersive, engaging live experiences are crucial to bolster teamwork and further your communication strategy.Consider these 4 steps as you begin to plan your next town hall:
- Fully Prepare Pre-Meeting: A well thought-out town hall plan will help ensure you meet your goals.
- Consider Your Audience: Most town halls must resonate across departments, locations and business objectives. The town hall should not only be beneficial to all attending, but also engaging and fun.
- Equip Company Leaders: Town halls give leaders an opportunity to communicate a powerful corporate message; just as importantly, they give leaders a platform to listen to employees on a personal level.
- Conduct the Necessary Follow-Up: Town halls are a great opportunity to gain employee insights, and it’s best to collect feedback as soon as possible after the meeting.
