How does marketing to employees affect buy-in?
Face it, if rules enforcement, processes and procedures had the power to create employee buy-in, it would have been done by now. But, safety processes and rules don't create employee buy-in. They don't capture hearts and minds. Marketing does.
Educating your employees about the company's safety goals and motivating them to be enthusiastic about meeting those goals isn’t easy. Your employees are critical stakeholders who must be convinced of your organization's safety vision. You need an internal marketing strategy and campaign to reach them effectively.
Every department struggles to get buy-in.
Struggling to get better buy-in from employees isn't just a safety issue. It's everywhere in your organization. Sales departments struggle to improve performance numbers. HR struggles to keep employees engaged and motivated. Communications departments struggle to get the message right.
But how do you fix it? You could reach out to each department for their departmental expertise. But, HR people know HR. Sales people know sales. Communications people know communications. None of them know safety. You need a unique and custom strategy.
