How is it almost April? This year seems to be flying by at a ridiculous pace and we are almost a quarter of the year down!
At the speed that we have become accustomed to working at, it is so very easy to get caught up in the urgency of the daily running of our businesses.
The important, but less urgent tasks sometimes fall by the wayside, with all our good intentions of dealing with them later. When they are looked at, it is in a rush and perhaps without the care and attention that they deserve.
One of the tasks that I am thinking of is internal communication, particularly written internal communication.
Keeping your team updated on developments, events, industry news and progress is essential!
The advantages of excellent internal communication
• Encourages trust and ends the rumour mill
• Maintains staff engagement and decreases staff turnover
• Boosts morale
• Builds company culture
• Ensures that your customer has the best possible experience with your brand, through your informed and well trained front-line staff
And most importantly:
It is key to achieving your organisation’s purpose!
Think for a moment about social media. We have become used to receiving a constant, bite size flow of information and feedback. Social media engages us and keeps us coming back for more. Similarly, your team want to know what is happening, why and how they are contributing. Your regular communication with them keeps them engaged and motivated.
But… regular, positive internal communication is tricky and time consuming.
How I can help?
Let me do the writing for you!
I have years of experience in working with various organisations, from the very small to the very large corporates. I have studied strategic business management, so I understand what goes into making a successful business tick! This experience, together with my flair for the written word and my natural ability to adapt to tone and audience means that I can easily and effectively help you communicate with your team.
How do we do this?
I can write your staff newsletters, informational displays, resource documents, event updates and even scripting of oral communication.
I can work with you on an ad hoc project basis, or on an hourly or per word rate, or we can do this on a contract basis, for a reasonable monthly fee.
Let me know what you want to your people to know, and let me figure out the rest!
Contact me now and we can set up a time to discuss your needs.
