Current Employees

Here is a question that every manager should ask themselves: If this is how we are communicating to new hires, do we also communicate to existing employees the same way? Do they know the purpose of their work? Do they know the mission of the company? The team? Go back over the key points of this chapter and ask yourself if your existing employees know this information. If the answer is a resounding “no,” then put a plan together to start communicating all these concepts over time.

This is a way of ensuring that you as a manager hire and keep the best, most-motivated employees.
