Menopause is not just a gender or age issue. It impacts colleagues both directly or indirectly and should therefore be considered as an organisational issue. All managers and employees need to know about it and understand how they can support their colleagues. In this interview, Craig is joined by Carolyn Hobdey and Dave Algeo. Together, they will be exploring the impact of organisations and managers ignoring the menopause and mid-life issues their employees are experiencing.
Connecting employees to the big picture - How do we connect our employees at a local level to the corporate bigger pictures of corporate values and corporate messages whilst recognising their local needs and their local requirements? This is what we're going to be looking at in today's interview and we hope you'll find this a really interesting conversation.
What are some of the things that you need to be really mindful of when you're growing an internal communications team now? In particular, when you're working in a global organisation with thousands of employees, that's even more challenging where you've got multiple channels, multiple audiences, multiple requirements in your stakeholders.
So in this interview, we explore that dilemma, how do we communicate change effectively to our employees using technology or using the modern tools that we have at our disposal? It's also important to remember that there are some fundamental things that we need to be aware of as communicators, we need to be acting as trusted advisers, experts within our organisation.
Hope is a powerful motivator and something that many organisations have been starved of since the pandemic began. Richard Nugent, Founder of TwentyOne Leadership, explains to the Engaging Internal Comms Podcast why communicators need to start bringing hope back and how they can go about doing this.
