When firing on all cylinders, an internal communications department creates understanding and breeds knowledge sharing across all areas of an organization.
It unifies departments and teams, leveling the playing field and ensuring that every employee—from the mailroom to the boardroom—has a voice and knows what’s going on.
As with any other department, internal communications must be proactively maintained. Tools and strategies must be updated as your organization and the world evolve.
Far too often, organizations leave this department in the Dark Ages and deprive it of the latest and greatest technologies.
Many companies still rely on antiquated, impersonal communication methods such as paper flyers, intranets and mass emails, and as a result, millions of employees of all shapes and sizes feel disconnected.
