Paul Sanchez, global director of employee research at Mercer Human Resource Consulting, has learned through employee opinion surveys that internal communications is a critical area many companies fail to manage effectively. "The first and most important thing is to have a clear understanding about the importance of communicating comprehensively, promptly, with as much transparency as is possible," says Sanchez in an interview with CFO.com. Sanchez cites the memoir of IBM's Lou Gerstner as a crucial lesson of the critical role that communication played in IBM's comeback. Gerstner "realized very early on that it would be impossible to move IBM without winning the hearts and minds of people," says Sanchez.
