Internal Communications Masterclass

Overview:

Introduction:

Effective internal communications help colleagues to work to the best of their abilities and to develop their skills to ensure everyone is focused on achieving an organization’s goals. Organizations are only as good as their weakest link. Poor customer service could spoil the work of expensive advertising and marketing campaigns. Employees are also front line ambassadors for organizations and should be nurtured as a powerful tool for recommendations and referrals. A good internal communications strategy promotes well being and productivity and makes people feel valued. Research shows that job satisfaction rather than financial reward is often a stronger motivation for loyalty. This course shows how to develop a dynamic corporate culture, how to manage change, and how to bring the best out of the people with whom you work.
