Proving the value of Internal Communications: How to build partnerships to reach company goals

At Encompass Health, communicating with employees is about more than clogging inboxes with information “everyone needs to know.” It requires a thoughtful approach aimed at changing employee behaviors and sparking action across the company. But not all department leaders initially saw it that way. In this session, the Associate Director of Internal Communications & Engagement at Encompass Health will share how she gained buy-in from the top down for a multi-channel employee communications strategy – continually demonstrating value along the way. She’ll share best practices and key learnings, including:

  • How to build bridges across departments as a strategic partner (instead of an order-taker)
  • Strategies for measuring impact and proving value to the C-suite
  • Ideas for delivering corporate messages while giving local teams a voice

3:30 pm
Engaging Employees in a Multi-Channel World

Communication plays a vital role in employee engagement and culture, among many other things. In today’s workforce, companies are now faced with many challenges to connect and engage with their employees. The question is, how do you communicate with your entire audience? Hear from Mark Heslop as he discusses the communication landscape and importance of building a multi-channel approach.

Key takeaways:

  • What is multi-channel
  • Pros and cons of using different channels
  • How Poppulo can help in a multi-channel world
