Covid triggered a huge social experiment, making the virtual workplace a reality almost overnight. The future of work, a destination that we thought was years away, is now. As communicators, HR professionals and custodians of organisational culture we face a big challenge – how to engage a workforce that is now spread across multiple kitchens, bedrooms and home offices. With no face to face gatherings and no watercooler moments, how do you galvanize teams and strengthen and sustain culture? Anne-Marie Kiernan, Head of Internal Communications for Kellogg Europe tells us how they have been communicating through Covid and how her team are using insights and learnings from this crisis to reinvent how they communicate.
Join us as we discuss how the crisis of Covid has created an opportunity for internal communication.
