Going forward is your business dialling up and reaching out to your employees and chunking up its comms efforts?

Yuck, can’t believe I just wrote that!

The topic of jargon regularly crops up in comms circles and this week has been no exception. I tweeted I was on the lookout for examples and received some frankly shocking answers back. You can see them all below, thank you to everyone who contributed.

There are a number of articles on jargon that have been published over the past few weeks and I recommend reading if you’re keen to explore this topic more:

What about our own profession? There’s certainly a wealth of terminology around, from brown bags to cascades and all-hands, the list is seemingly endless.

With that in mind, I recently created a glossary of internal communication to clarify some of the phrases that are regularly used.

You can see it here.

The glossary is a work in progress, do please let me know if you have any suggestions of words and phrases you’d like me to add or define. You can tweet me @AllthingsIC or comment below.

Know any other examples? Do please let me know.

Brace yourself…
