What's the Big Idea about Communicating?
Just when everyone agrees good communication is important, the world changes and good needs to 'up its game' to be excellent. At Jovian Concepts, we are Up to the Challenge.
We have long had structures in place for providing information and responding quickly to questions, both essential in a time of rapidly changing news.
Receiving information, being able to ask about 'the why', listening to each other, and checking for understanding are all key components of excellent communication. Holding true to our Core Values of Cohesiveness, Loyalty, Balance, Personal Growth, and Professionalism, our communication structure is multifaceted to meet the diverse needs of individuals and a variety of situations that require effective communication:
daily updates on Teams
small personnel sections
program lead reports
quarterly All Hands with our president
annual Growth Plan meetings and mid-year check-ins
annual anonymous survey
periodic 'pulse' surveys
anonymous suggestion box
retreats for various size groups throughout the year
executive level open-door policy
employee-led diversity and inclusion committee
private Facebook page for employees
private Facebook page for Plus Ones
public news channel on website
Some of the ways Jovian Concepts is 'upping the game' of communication come directly from Jovian feedback on surveys or from face-to-face discussions. Though many of the structures listed above have been in place for over a decade, each is evaluated regularly and evolves as needed.
From seeing the big picture to receiving individualized attention, Jovian Concepts is ready to respond to the needs of employees and the community.
It is a Big Idea to structure our company for effective communication.
Big Ideas are Jovian Concepts.
