Internal Comms Thought-Leadership
Here are three of our most popular internal comms thought-leadership articles from comms experts.
Creating The Internal Comms Platform For Communication Leaders.
“For us, focusing on communication leaders makes sense because it combines the usual focus on improving the technology with a conscious connection with strategy and impact - giving clients and the profession, the support and inspiration they need to get the best results on and off the platform. It is a smart approach, and we believe it is the right approach.” - Chris Izquierdo, CEO, Sparrow Connected
Comms Experts Explore The Limitations Of Employee Engagement Scores
“I think one limitation is definitely the once-a-year versus a conversation. It's treated like a campaign once a year for organizations to talk to their employees, but they really should be having those conversations regularly. The biggest limitation is that it isn't directly connected to business results. There is nothing that comes out of those surveys, the engagement survey, that creates the alignment to the business strategy.” - Priya Bates, President and Owner at Inner Strength Communication.
Rethinking Internal Communication: Five Bold Ideas
“Organizations - and their internal communication pros - have a massive opportunity to shift towards activities that make a difference right now. Reducing noise, treating employees as capable adults with distinct motivations, providing communication platforms people will want to use, and recognizing that the way people actually communicate is different from the way org charts tell us how they should; these are not crazy ideas. But they’re not what everyone is doing now, which makes them bold ideas.” - Mike Klein, Founder of #WeLeadComms
