Gallagher’s State of the Sector 2021/22 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.
Informed by 1,300 responses from HR and communication leaders across the globe, this year’s edition explores five big questions facing our profession today:
- Purpose and strategy: is internal communication creating clarity and driving understanding?
- Employee experience: are organizations taking a more proactive approach to this getting a competitive advantage?
- Hybrid working: are organizations adjusting their engagement strategies?
- People managers: what is their role in the new world of work?
- The golden age of communication: what can we learn from world-class practitioners?
The report also provides insights into how organizations of various sizes engage their people, how they rate their internal communication channels and how much resource they invest in internal communication.
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.
