How To Close Your Biggest Communication Gap

Sparrow Connected Blog Post-3

A significant percentage of the global workforce is disconnected from the organizations they work for because they don’t have access to the digital channels used for internal communications. 

At Sparrow Connected, we know from years of working with companies across North America that most frontline workers aren’t given Microsoft licenses.   

“The problem with not having Microsoft accounts for every employee is that a percentage of your workforce is out of the loop from a digital communication point of view. It creates a two-tier employee culture.”  

 - Chris Izquierdo, CEO, Sparrow Connected 

Find out how easy it is to close this communication gap.

  • Changing workplace demographic

IC Leaders Need to Think “Hand on The Wheel” Before “Seat at The Table”

Being in control by steering the wheel on the ship

It’s been six months since Mike Klein, a communications leader with 30+ years of experience and founder of the growing #WeLeadComms movement, joined forces with Sparrow Connected on our mission to elevate the internal comms profession.  

To see how far we’ve come (and how far we still have to go), we asked Mike to share his thoughts, observations and insights on the state of the internal communication industry today.  

“IC leaders - and Chief Communication Officers - need to make the case that they already have a hand on the wheel and that it makes sense for us to also have a seat at the table.” 
- Mike Klein, Founder, #WeLeadComms 

Check out the insightful interview with Mike Klein.
