Internal Communications Conference

This Conference will take an in depth look at the fast changing world of internal communications and how it is increasingly taking on the critical employee engagement role that has too often been neglected by those in HR.

The way we work is changing rapidly. Our people are becoming more mobile with access to more and more sophisticated technology. The way we communicate with our people must also change and we will look at how organisations are grappling with the challenges thrown up by the seismic changes in the way we work.

Delegates will learn how internal communications can deliver effective employee engagement across the entire organisation and how to create a strategy for the entire employee journey. The focus will be on those organisations that are driving towards competitive advantage by getting their employee communications strategies right.
