Also known as ‘taking people with you’. Better communication makes your workplace a happier place.
Communication defines culture. Culture shapes values. And values determine the future of your company. Without a clearly defined culture, employees get disenchanted, lose purpose and move on.
And it works both ways. Listening to your employees has reciprocal benefits. Insights from the sharp end help your business adapt to a changing world.
At RMS, we’ll help you get under the skin of your company. Answer the questions that make a difference to your employees. Why do we do what we do? Where are we headed? Why?
We’ll also help you avoid the obvious. ‘Integrity, honesty and respect’ are certainly important but do they actually distinguish you as a company? It would be a strange culture that didn’t espouse them.
We’ll help you see yourselves as others see you, articulate how you see yourselves and put them both in language that everyone understands.
How we handle internal communication
It’s all about opening up the channels. Getting your employees used to the dialogue and feeding the right messages in over time. So we’ll work closely with you. Getting down to the substance of your business. Where it came from. What it’s capable of. What its customers expect of it. How the departments interact and, dare we say it, understanding the internal politics (every company has politics, even if they don’t think they do, so don’t worry – we’ve seen it all).
Then we work out an internal communications strategy with you and craft the key messages to engage your employees in a way that only your company’s culture can. That’s where our brilliant in-house team of copywriters, designers, web designers and strategists come to the fore. And then we shape it all into fresh and exciting, on-message content.
