Organizational communication is the internal communication techniques you use to disseminate information and communicate with employees. Organizational communication techniques can vary from company to company, but these techniques can be used in small, medium or large organizations. The important factor in internal communication is that the employees you intend to receive the message do. Most effective techniques are free or very low cost to the company.
Create an email program or internal newsletter. Put one of your employees in charge of creating a monthly email newsletter. Have the employee update the newsletter with important information about the company, changes to policies, special dates, health and safety tips, to feature an employee of the month and even hosting a contest, puzzle or fun game for employees to enjoy. Send out the newsletter via email to the employees on a set schedule once per month to keep them up-to-date on company happenings and news.
Host theme meetings. Rather than the same old meeting format, plan employee meetings around a lunch theme or other theme. Bring in a catered lunch or have employees bring their own lunch to enjoy during the company meeting. Some companies conduct regular meetings this way to update employees or to have employees update management and other, once per month, or you can call a meeting when it is necessary to discuss a specific topic or issue.

Create a social networking group. Create social networking groups for your employees on social networking sites, such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Not only can you post company updates and information in these groups for your members and followers (the employers), but it also a platform where employees can leave messages for you and interact with the other employees. This not only allows you to share information about the company with your employees but allows them to share information with each other.
