So many great internal communications tips and strategies were shared during this week’s “Employee Communications Strategies: Build A Framework for Today’s Workforce Masterclass.”
Preston Lewis of Intactic walked the group through a detailed playbook of how internal communications’ biggest role is to facilitate transformation and behavior change through communications.
The masterclass wrapped up with a panel of internal communications practitioners from Autodesk, Alcon & KPMG sharing several quick ideas and their proudest work, to help keep their hybrid workforces engaged, including:
- Wellness Initiatives: Seeing employees come together around a wellness challenge tied to charitable contributions
- Email that’s Quick & Easy to Skim: Rolling out a 500-word or less employee email digest recapping the top of line things that are most important
- Storytelling: It’s about your people! Telling a story about your diverse employee audiences both internally and externally
- Bring in the Human and the Fun: Starting weekly team meetings with sharing good news – personal/not work related to replace the water cooler talk
- Awards & Recognition: Asking employees to share what they are celebrating and rewarding a few contributors regularly with small culture awards
