Centre for Strategic Communication Excellence asks communication profession: How are you really feeling?
The IABC Foundation is thrilled to partner with Centre for Strategic Communication Excellence. To coincide with World Mental Health Day on Sunday, 10 October, the Centre for Strategic Communication Excellence (CSCE) is commencing research into how communication professionals are feeling about their mental wellbeing, to identify the barriers to improving it and to gain insights that help ease the pressure.
This research is important to us at IABC because we want to play our part in advocating, supporting, and enabling organisations, associations, and individuals through work life challenges.
So, please take 10 minutes of your time to complete the So how do you really feel? survey. We will be able to share the final mental wellbeing report when it’s published and plan to follow through with any recommendations that will support and strengthen our community of communication professionals.

Gallagher’s State of the Sector 2021 report has landed!
We’re pleased to support the launch of State of the Sector – the definitive global survey of the internal communication and employee engagement landscape, brought to you by Gallagher.
After what has been an undeniably extraordinary year, the report is a great way to benchmark your internal communication channels and investment. It’s also a useful guide to navigating the holistic communication challenges facing organizations, including…
- Digital experience: how have organizations adapted their communication channels to suit today’s environment, and with what success?
- Employee experience (EX): are employers actually embracing this, and how well are they implementing the different components of EX?
- Transformation: what changes are organizations going through, and what does good communication look like when it comes to keeping employees on side during a business transformation?
- Insight: how are organizations turning data into actions, and what are the barriers to measuring the impact and effectiveness of communication?
The report also explores the budget and resource dedicated to internal communication and employee experience, the shifts in use and performance of communication channels, priorities and challenges for 2021, and the importance placed on line managers in delivering communication and engagement.
To understand more about this survey and its results, you can review the 2021 State of the Sector report below. You can also register for the webinar where Matt Holden and Andy Macleod will explore some of the key themes covered in the report.
