Since the start of the pandemic, businesses have been working to find the balance between people and profits.

Change Communications: Building and Executing and Effective Framework to Drive Transformation
Trish Drennan, Head of Internal Communications | TransUnion
Change management is gaining more visibility in corporations thanks to focus on employee experience and retention goals, but what about change communications?
Being able to define the change is critical, but without effective communications, even the best laid plans can fall apart. The Internal Communications team at TransUnion lead the company's largest and most significant change campaign in its over 50-year history--incorporating approximately 3,000 employees into its ranks which increased its population by 50%.
The team had to invent their playbook as they went along as they worked to support the integration of people, processes, and systems across three companies acquired over the course of 4 months. Their story is intriguing, complex, and inspiring.
Tune in to learn how to lead a strategic transformation through their innovative, agile, and cohesive approach to change communications.
Attendees will leave the session learning more about:
●Differentiation and intersections between change management and change communications
●Key components of a successful change communication program
●Strategies for working within a complex stakeholder environment
●Lessons learned from a 4,000 employee acquisition integration change communications program
