Today’s episode of Internal comms TV includes information about the survey I launched this week with simply-communicate, the history of IC and a free book offer for my readers and viewers.

Survey: What’s in a name?

From conversations with my clients and people in my network, I realised there is a gap in terms of information among IC pros into who is doing what when it comes to social media inside organisations.

So I have partnered with the smart people at simply-communicate including Marc WrightSilvia Cambie and Gloria Lombardi, to conduct some research from now until 13 September.

The aim is to explore what kind of terms companies and individuals use when referring to the adoption of social media inside their organisation. Are we talking about internal social media? Social collaboration tools? Enterprise social networking? Social business?…

I’d like to discover what you think works and particularly what name is given to ‘internal social media’ in your company and the reasons for it.

It’s called “What’s in a name? What do you call internal social media?” It is 20 questions long and takes around 10 minutes to complete.

I’d love you to please have your say. Whatever stage you’re at when it comes to this topic, you’re welcome to participate.

You can take the survey here

What’s the history of IC?

Richard Evans, Head of Media at Diabetes UK, wrote a guest article for my blog this week about the history of internal communication and highlighting his biography of  Sir Basil Clarke.

You can read the article here.

The research by Kevin Ruck and Heather Yaxley I mention in Internal Comms TV can be found here and the short film from CIPR Inside is here.
