I am in the process of drawing up a communication cum employee engagement program for my company, a mid sized IT company based in Pune. Employees in a recent survey in our company had bemoaned the lack of a forum for communication and fun in the organization. My task is to set up one. Objectives are:
1. To hear out employees and their suggestions / grievance
2. To disseminate corporate happenings to all employees
3. To create an atmosphere of openness in the organization so employees are well informed at all times.
4. To also create a fun environment to work in
Please let me know what it should include. There are many things which companies do to keep the communication flowing vertically and horizontally. I would like to hear out ideas from senior members in this forum about such initiatives!

I think this is one good area wherein a lot of your creativity can be made use of.
To start with, rather than taking this as an assignment singlehandedly, I would suggest that you make a team of people from across the cross section to form a core team and make it a joint responsibility.
The team can then do some brain storming a come up with various ideas on how to proceed. You could take more of a role of a facilitator and co-ordinator. This would have more participation and less complaining.
What do you think

I think Sherine is absolutly right & practical in this regard, make a team among the employees ( take creative, active & enthusiatic members), Try to have a member from each department, but the team size should not exceed more than 7-9 members.
Your role should be more of a facilitator and coordinator. You can have themes and situations created for opening candidates.

Dear John:
I think you can opt for the below mentioned practices apart from what Sherine and Kusumadhar has suggested.
1. You may want to initiate some Monthly Lunches/ or even a simple coffee meeting of Sr. Mgt with junior folks. You may want to take self nominations for the same or even you can randomly choose people based on their roles.
2. You may want to start with the philosophy of Employee Champions so as to ensure the proper dissemination of all the information
3. Monthly fun activity (either online or physical)
4. Birthday celebrations (Monthly)
5. Go for a dipstick to know more about employees expectation out of the same, then plan accordingly.
6. Sometimes, small adventure/fun clubs also helps in Employee Engagement
Others, pls share your ideas so as to we all can gain the maximum.

Today’s organizations need their departments to work closely together in order to produce better results. All departments and teams must work with greater coordination, and in order to achieve this, organizations implement employee engagement activities.
