Having multiple and ongoing meetings with employees is important. Personally, I’d begin having the two HR teams meet with senior leadership to get an overview of the communication we want to deliver. Having everyone on the same page and communicating the same message is key to building trust and understanding. Then, I’d suggest holding a town hall meeting with employees to go over the message, provide them resources for asking additional questions, organizational charts and key contact information. Having break out sessions next with smaller groups will give the opportunity to answer more specific questions related to roles and departments, as well as give the new employees the opportunity to get to know you on a personal level. Having this direct connections helps build trust. Recaps posted on an intranet will give employees access to information they may have missed or wanted to review again.
