INTERNAL COMMUNICATIONS

Any organisation is only as good as its people and communicating effectively with them is vital.

We’ve helped many organisations engage successfully with their employees by combining strategic and creative thinking to deliver compelling and effective employee communications on time and on budget.

Whether your aim is to inform, alter the way they operate, communicate a change or turn employees into advocates, how you communicate will dictate their relationship with you. Get it right, and the results are better performance, higher employee retention and a feel-good work factor.

Motivate, unite and inspire your employees – why wouldn’t you?

What is internal communications?

Internal communications are vital to organisations that are keen to engage their employees by telling the story and success of their brand or business through a range of mediums.

Essentially, it’s corporate storytelling. A fantastic way to update your employees with business news, successes and an in-depth look at what’s going on inside your organisation.

Internal communications typically are communicated through employee magazines, newsletters, brochures, posters, handbooks or e-shots – materials that get right to the heart of your employees.

Expert design and copywriting will make sure your internal communications materials are effective, engaging and impactful.

Depending on the size of your organisation will depend on what approach is taken. For example, a larger organisation might opt for an electronic newsletter whereas a smaller firm might decide to send out a hard-copy newsletter - it’s personal preference.

All successful internal communications strategies generally contain three key parts:

  1. Explain and Reiterate your strategic direction
  2. Excite and Inspire employees with stories and key wins
  3. Engage and Connect with employees to get insights, ensuring you stay in touch as a team

Benefits of internal communications

Employees are a business’s greatest asset, therefore it’s important to ensure they are constantly informed of on-goings within the company.

Communicating positive developments to your employees such as client wins, new members of staff and encouraging financial results is great way to boost morale.

Internal communications such as monthly newsletters or weekly email round ups give your business a voice. In the unlikely event that bad news needs to be shared, or a statement needs to be issued regarding a particular incident internally, good channels of internal comms give you this opportunity.

Creating a highly successful internal communications strategy is relatively straight forward, done well it can significantly shape your business’s culture, help internal conversation and ultimately transform your business.
