Every time an employee and customer interact, there is an opportunity to either reinforce or weaken your brand. The key to ensuring your employees understand your brand mission is through strong communications. Internal communications is a powerful tool to not only deliver key messages, but to help inspire your employees around a common and shared purpose. Ensuring that every employee understands how to make your brand mission actionable is critical to success.
But where do you begin? How do you build an internal communications strategy? How do you move from tactical communications to a more strategic approach? Just like external brand building, internal communications requires grounding in an insight, a dose of inspiration and a message that resonates.
In this presentation, Prophet Brand Strategy partner Jeff Smith will use a variety of real-word examples and case studies to provide perspectives on how to create a winning internal communications that engage employees and ultimately help grow your mission.
