September 6, 2017 #CommsChat on communicating with a remote workforce

After a hugely busy first #CommsChat back after the August break, we can’t wait to welcome Emily Bateman and Sheila Parry, of internal communications agency, theblueballroom, to talk about communicating with a remote workforce. We’ll be chatting about the opportunities and challenges a remote workforce presents, how traditional workplaces have adapted to embrace a more flexible approach, and the creative solutions of employers to ensure their remote workforce remains as connected as its static employees. Follow @CommsChat on Twitter and use the hashtag #CommsChat to get involved.

The topics are:

  • How can a remote workforce be defined? What challenges does it create for employee engagement?
  • Can you maintain your company culture when employees work remotely? How?
  • What are the best tools or channels for communicating with remote workers? What creative approaches have you taken in your companies?
  • How do you approach communicating with a global or diverse workforce?
  • What is the key to successful long-distance communications?

Join us! We tweet from @CommsChat and #CommsChat takes place every Monday, from 8-9pm GMT. Anyone can take part in the discussion – simply follow the hashtag here or on Twitter. If you can’t make the chat or would like to revisit it, a transcript will be posted to Storify on Tuesday morning. We’d love to hear your suggestions for future topics – please get in touch with Amy at amy.sandys@communicatemagazine.co.uk or contact us on Twitter with any ideas.
