It’s been a few tough weeks for internal communicators. As a profession, we’ve been thrust into a crisis unlike anything we’ve ever experienced. And whether the majority of employees in our organisations are working from home, commuting into work, or on furlough, there’s been a considerable amount of work for us to do to keep people informed of what’s happening around them and how it might impact them. Our function has been crucial to keeping our organisations moving as smoothly as possible.
It’s not been easy, and with no similar experiences to refer to for best practice, we’ve all had to give it our best shot, and innovate whilst doing so. At Gatehouse, we wanted to learn as much as possible from what IC practitioners have been doing and we wanted to share this information across the profession to try and provide just a smidgeon of clarity in these uncertain times.

So, it’s been a tough few weeks for communicators, but it’s also been a learning experience, which has brought out the best in people and organisations.
If you want to learn more about just how IC practitioners are handling the crisis, and what they believe the future may hold, you can download the full survey results here.
We’re also holding some webinars on the topic, which will be a great way to connect with your peers and our consultants. Details to follow!
