I found two great resources on internal communications that I want to share.
Melcrum’s Source for Communicators recently featured a great article on how to help prepare managers who have to deliver difficult news. It provides guidance on creating the appropriate communications environment for employees + helping managers build their confidence in communicating in a challenging situation.
I’m also happy to recommend Jane Vanderhorst’s new blog focused on helping HR professionals with employee communications, The Inside Voice: Effective HR Communications That Engage Employees. Check it out and then pass it along to the HR folks in your organization.
