Inside out – Employee communications & engagement

The practice of employee communication and engagement is as diverse as the skills of the people who practice it. We aim to raise professional standards and share best practice in the profession. We want to create a community of choice for practitioners, consultants and academics. We see discussion, debate and dialogue as key ways to share knowledge. This group isn’t suitable for anyone who doesn’t want to be part of a progressive profession. Some of the content may provide difficult and challenging for the more traditional communicators.

Companies have challenges – consultants have answers – sharing these freely will give benefits for both parties. Internal Communication Challenges is a challenge to us all to be better. Share best practice, hints and tips, documentation and lessons learned. Clients get value from online advice – communication professionals get an opportunity to hear from clients about what they want. Cross sector perspective is welcomed.

Measuring internal communication
2,001
Measuring internal communication is a group dedicated to helping internal communication and other professionals learn about and share their experiences in this area. For a variety of reasons, measurement of internal communication activity is often in short supply, either because practitioners lack time or resource or because they are unclear about what to do. I hope the discussions and knowledge sharing within this group help break down these barriers and encourage more of us to prioritize measurement. After all, it’s the best way of demonstrating the value we bring.

 

These highly active groups are excellent resources from which you can gather a myriad of tips, trends, and ideas for successful internal communication. Furthermore, when you join these groups, you immediately have an automatic network of people who know a lot about internal communication best practices, so you always have someone to turn to for help. Come join the conversation on internal communication!
