Internal Comms – culture change, collaboration and happier teams
“Happiness results in a 12% spike in productivity: unhappy employees are 10% less productive.”
from ‘Happiness and Productivity’, Andrew Oswald, University of Warwick (2015)
Internal comms is often last on the organsiational priority list. Internal newsletters, email communication and staff meetings have remained the same for decades and nobody enjoys them. It’s time to bring about culture change, start working collaboratively and focus on building happier, more productive teams.
Packed with practical ideas and case studies, this special session from CharityComms will explore some key areas to help make this a reality:
- Culture change focused on how staff and volunteers communicate & collaborate
- Online channels to combat email overload
- Offline, face-to-face, ways of changing how internal comms works in your charity.
- Using internal comms to drive your organisational strategy
We will hear from three outstanding speakers who have brought about change in their charities:
- Lauren Plüss, Digital Information Manager at Young Scot
- Ian Dunn, Communications Officer at SCIAF
- Jennifer Goff, Communications and Engagement Officer at Waverley Care
About the Scotland networking group
The Scotland networking group is a network for comms professionals working in Scotland-based charities.
You’ll be given the opportunity to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The group is designed to encourage networking and peer-to-peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ and relaxed environment.
Each event will focus on a topic which delegates will discuss in small groups before feeding back to the group as a whole. There’ll also be plenty of time for networking.
These networking events are held in Edinburgh or Glasgow, three times a year.
If there’s a topic you’d like to discuss or if you’d be interested in speaking at a future event, please contact Vanessa.
If you’d like to be one of the first to hear about these events, please email Lauren to be added to the mailing list.
