A few tips when considering an internal communications project:
- Face to face briefings are the most effective method of communicating with staff and the most successful mechanism to secure staff understanding and engagement with the change process.
- Celebrate success with small events and thank-yous etc.
- Cascade written and email briefings to staff.
- Consider using electronic communications such as fortnightly or monthly emails, blogs or use of social networking sites.
- Staff Intranet - speak to the Web & Digital Communications team about how best to promote your news at a department or School level.
Please note that while email and the intranet are valuable mechanisms to communicate with staff, it is recommended that these are used in addition to face-to-face communications. There is a danger that some electronic communications may be misinterpreted, constraining effective two-way communication and engagement.
