Show #47: Communicate for Engagement Success
Special guest: Sean Trainor, Chair of the Communicate for Success Special Interest Group (SIG)
The link between employee communications and business success is perhaps obvious when you look at the four enablers for success identified in the MacLeod report.
The life in the day of an employee communications practitioner involves supporting leaders and managers articulate the purpose of the organisation and facilitating dialogue with front-line staff to make sure their voice is heard. Recent research amongst practitioners demonstrates a desire to spend more time on these activities away from the humdrum of providing functional and operational updates.
What is holding internal communications practitioners back from playing a more fulfilling role?
What role will social media inside enterprise play and how is that likely to change the role of employee communications?
These and other questions are explored in the SIG Communicate For Success.
