Many organisations are waking up to the fact that their staff play a major role in their external brands. They’re building new digital formats that help their people to interact; investing in employee engagement; and helping their staff to tell their stories externally. But this is not always the case. In some workplaces, internal communications is relegated to ‘post box’ status; employee engagement stops at throwing an office party once a year; and executives are nervous about letting their employees loose on social media. In this context, how can PR professionals make the case for doing things differently, and harness the power of internal communications for external benefit?
In this latest PUBlic Relations event, our expert panel will offer some unique insights into this growing field – outlining practical steps that communications professionals can help take to make a difference to their organisations.
