Focus on: Internal communication and employee engagement

What are the connections between internal communication and employee engagement? Do they go hand-in-hand and what resources are around to help you think through what’s right for your organisation?

KevinYesterday I had the pleasure of hearing Kevin Ruck @AcademyKev of PR Academy speaking on this topic as part of a webinar organised by CIPR Inside, the sector group for internal communicators from the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.

The hour-long event was a real treat as Kevin shared some insights into research that forms part of his PhD and it was packed with hints and tips.

Topics up for discussion included the difference between work engagement and organisational engagement, a look at the Workplace Employment Relations Study and informed employee voice.

If you missed the webinar and are a CIPR member, a replay will be available soon via the CIPR website (members only access), and I recommend checking it out when it’s up to hear Kevin talking through his slides.
