More about this year's Internal Communication Forum:
Employees who are engaged and aware of organisational goals and values, and who understand their roles are more motivated, feel more valued and perform better. Workers who are more enthusiastic add value to their organisation resulting in better performance and cost reduction.
In today's workplace, the reality of constant change and tightening budget create various challenges. Internal communicators must ensure that employees are kept well informed and engaged during turbulent times through online or traditional channels. They must also find alternative ways to engage and communicate with non-networked employees and effectively manage cynicism towards senior leaders. Successful internal communication projects require senior management buy-in and support which is often easier said than done.
This forum will bring together communication practitioners, thought leaders, educators and association leaders for discussions and interactive debate. Delegates will have the opportunity to hear practical case studies about how other organisations have approached topical issues and challenges.
You will explore the following challenges:
- Managing internal communication during change
- Using social media to communicate internally and externally
- Gaining employee buy-in and engaging with non-networked employees
- Sustaining the message beyond launch phase
- Boosting morale and engaging staff on a limited budget
- Getting senior management buy-in
Establishing internal communication at the centre of organisational change
WHAT WILL BE COVERED DURING THIS SESSION?
- Demonstrating the key role and value of internal communication
- Raising employee awareness and gaining manager buy in
- A survival guide, tools and strategies to keep you on track
- Case studies of successful internal communication during change
