Engagement In Action

Engagement In Action

Paul Summerhill, Vice Chair for CIPR Inside, shares his view of how we all work together to do what we do as a group for the profession. Over to Paul:   I had been really looking forward to last week’s CIPR Inside Conference for internal communication and it didn’t disappoint. There have already been a number of articles, blogs and posts in the build up to the event itself, but I wanted to share a ‘behind the scenes’ perspective. A sell-out, it’s one of the many events that we as the CIPR Inside committee organise throughout the year to bring internal comms folks together to celebrate successes – and often share our […]

Harnessing the power of employee advocacy

Harnessing the power of employee advocacy

When we talked about the annual internal communication conference and its theme Closing the Gap, the committee started to share some of the challenges we each face in our own organisations. The latest post from our committee, is from Helen Deverell. Helen shares her experience of a significant gap in organisations. The chasm that can occur between internal and external communication and how collaborating can help employee advocacy and especially our external comms partners.   Over to Helen: I’ve worked with organisations where the gap between internal and external communication is equivalent to the Grand Canyon. The view has been different audiences, so therefore different responsibilities (and budgets!). But recently, that’s begun to change […]

Joining the dots

Joining the dots

When we talked about the annual internal communication conference, and its theme Closing the Gap, the committee started to share some of the challenges we each face in our own organisations. Everyone working in internal communication or employee engagement has gaps that they need to bridge, a challenge to be overcome or connections to be made. It goes with the territory and is a part of what makes our work both challenging and rewarding. The conference theme aims to cover many of these ‘gaps’ and we thought we’d share some of the committee’s personal anecdotes with you here. So, next up it’s Jo Twiselton and the divide she’s seen in […]

Closing the gap

Closing the gap

We’ve just launched our one day, annual Internal Communication Conference, Closing the gap, today (Monday 18 July 2016). It’s on Tuesday 4 October, 2016, in London. We open at 8.30am for a networking breakfast, kick off the conference at 10am and close at 5pm, with drinks in the bar afterwards if you want to continue the conversations.     The CIPR Inside committee has been working on the theme which reflects something that we all face in our day jobs. Internal communicators have the skills and knowledge to not only spot and understand where gaps in organisations lie, but to also help their organisations to bridge these gaps. For example, […]
