Elevating Internal Communications Programs with Innovative Tactics, Leading Tools, and Enhanced Metrics

19-20 Feb 2020
Residence Inn Phoenix Downtown, Phoenix, AZ , United States of America

Conference Workshop

Strengthening Employee Connection with the Brand to Fuel Purpose

Research shows that organizations with employees who know what they stand for and who have a strong sense of purpose outperform those that don’t. However, getting employees to not only understand the brand but also live it in their day-to-day can be a challenge, especially when not every employee is consumer-facing and sees the impact they have. Internal communicators must find creative, engaging ways to relay the brand and tie each and every employee to the organization’s mission in a way that is both digestible and meaningful.

Conference Workshop

Walking through a Crisis: Sharpening Plans and Protocols for Proper Mitigation

Whether it’s layoffs, weather, product malfunctions, or some other unexpected and adverse event, at some point every organization faces a large-scale crisis. When developing a response strategy, it’s imperative for organizations to put employees at the forefront as failure to do so and communicate early can result in loss of trust, disengagement, and turnover. Internal communicators need to be prepared at any given moment to deliver a well-thought out, agile crisis communications plan that maintains employee engagement and ultimately corporate reputation.
