Employee communications and coronavirus – How to stay the course through a long crisis

About this Guide

Communication is the glue that holds us all together and gets us through a crisis. However, especially in the case of COVID-19, we communicators are also experiencing the crisis alongside everyone else. Because of that, it is both harder and more necessary to forge a methodical approach that lets us maintain momentum in our own selves and teams, then help build that momentum in the broader organization.

This isn’t a quick crisis we can plow all our energy into and take a rest in a few weeks. It’s a marathon that will need a healthy, steady pace to sustain us over the unknown course through to the finishing line intact. This guide takes you through the essential steps to keep going and be effective during a long crisis.

Employee communications teams face several barriers that hold them back from making decisions on how to effectively reach their employees. Many of these barriers can be tied back to human behavior, the expectations of employees today, uncertainty in business, limited resources, and the fear of messing up. And often, these barriers prevent communicators from making the right decisions about communications strategy—or even making any decision at all.
