The ideal days 🎉
- Monday: The start of the working week, perfect for motivating employees. Employees are often more receptive to new information after the weekend.
- Tuesday: Employees are less overloaded with work, which ensures more attention to your message. There are also less full mailboxes, therefore messages stand out more.
- Thursday: Next week's planning is already underway, perfect to include your vitality initiative.
Good timing is crucial for successful communication. Experiment with Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays for optimal results
Days to avoid 🛑
- Wednesday: Often a 'dip day' in the middle of the working week. Employees are still fully engaged in completing work or setting up new projects.
- Friday: Attention shifts to the weekend, leading to reduced focus. It would be a shame if your message ends up at the bottom of the pile.
So what is the ideal time? ⏲️
- Morning (10:00 - 11:00) After the morning rush: Messages are more likely to be read and remembered.
- Early Afternoon (14:00) After lunch break: New energy boost makes employees more receptive to information.
