Internal silos were identified as a concern in a recent survey; 37 percent of communication professionals said it was the biggest challenge they face sharing information.

Communications professionals feel email is most effective way to communicate with their teams; however, more than half of the global workforce doesn’t have a corporate email address and cannot be easily reached by email, according to communications platform provider Dynamic Signal, which sponsored the research.

Company intranets were ranked second for effective internal communication forms, earning a place ahead of social media, break room posters and mobile apps.
