Employees are more positive and apt to comply with an audit when every portion of the DEA is clearly communicated. A diversified communication plan is necessary to ensure a high response rate from employees.

 

Communications could include:

  • Internal emails
  • Centralized information posters
  • Direct mail to employee homes
  • Word of mouth (via managers and HR)
  • Video postcards

 

The initial communication should be sent out to all employees prior to the DEA start.
