2017 Internal Communication Trends

A couple weeks back, Sarah Perry wrote about emerging trends in internal communications on ragan.com.

Here is what she found:

Companies are encouraging employee-fronted content. Whether it is videos or screen savers, there’s more credibility when it is coming from a peer.

Although you may wish otherwise, email isn’t disappearing. It will remain the standard for business communication. The challenge remains how to ensure that everyone reads their email.

Yammer, Slack and other enterprise social networks are finding their way into more organizations.

Every year, people write about information overload. To combat it, there’s an increase in top-down, push messaging tools.

Internal Communications teams are increasingly being asked to provide data showing how they are making a difference.

What are the trends at your workplace?
