The year 2021 brings with it a massive agenda for those working in the internal comms and people spaces.  

According to the experts, this year we’ll be seeing more and more of the following themes as our world adapts to the new normal created as a result of the events following the last year:

  • Employee experience
  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • The digital workplace

While no two organizations are the same, we can all agree that effective internal comms are critical for success. All you have to do is maximize your opportunity and tackle this year with confidence.

On March 30, 2021, IC Thrive’s Director of Communications, Karen Johnston, will be speaking about her top three tips to help your internal comms team succeed this year on the first day of the Future of Work Conference Canada. Framing this discussion within the lens of the practical lessons she learned while sailing around Africa, she’ll provide you with her insights and expertise to help you and your team stay the course this year. She’ll walk you through how to equip yourself with an effective mandate, build an efficient internal comms process, and measure your efforts to make data-driven decisions.

On the second day of the conference, Karen will also participate in a panel discussion on “Strategies for avoiding communication overload,” which will provide you with invaluable ideas to improve your internal comms efforts. The panel will discuss numerous subjects, including personalization, communication with frontline staff, using data to measure impact and performance, and strategies to avoid the disconnect between how messages are received and interpreted.

To learn more about Karen’s expert tips, and to hear the many other engaging speakers, join your fellow HR, digital workplace, internal comms, and workplace transformation professionals by registering for the Future of Work Conference Canada. From networking opportunities, to developing your skillset, to learning about up-and-coming topics like hybrid working cultures, this conference is a treasure trove of resources for the internal comms professional.
