Best Practices in Internal Communications
Unlike those involved in external branding, professionals working in internal communications rarely see what their peers at other companies are doing. The first half of the webinar will share best practices collected from national and global brands in a range of communication channels, from employee intranets to mobile programs to word of mouth. We'll also review some of the most common internal communications mistakes made by many large brands.
The second half of the webinar will be devoted to particular challenges shared by many companies, such as:
+ Communicating with non-desk employees who don't work on computers
+ Bringing company values to life for employees+ Uniting employees working in multiple locations
+ Creating employee buy-in for change management initiatives
+ Building an internal culture that supports the external brand
