Employees – turning spectators into fans
Internal Communications (IC) is a function whose purpose, remit, expertise and impact urgently needs redefining, if not reinventing, in light of changes in the workplace and business landscape as a whole.
This research report argues that companies, and their leaders, need a function to help them both understand and influence employees’ thinking and behaviour and someone to help steward their internal reputation and help build trust, belief and a sense of purpose that resonates with employees.
CEOs and business leaders are unlikely to get this from a function whose skill set and modus operandi is largely transactional. Consequently the function’s purpose, remit, blend of skills and capability and (in many cases) its leadership, require a complete rethink and redefinition. The report describes how and why the function should be reimagined.
