This week's chat

January 15, 2015 #CommsChat with the IoIC

New Institute of Internal Communication research reveals there are now over 45,000 people working in internal communication in the UK. What has brought this about, and what are the implications for practitioners and their employers? Are organisations benefiting from the full potential of this workforce?

  • There are over 45,000 people working in internal communication in the UK. What do you see as the significance of these numbers? Has this still relatively new profession come of age?
  • Should this workforce have a common understanding of what doing a good job looks like? To what extent do they? How important are professional standards?
  • As the sector continues to evolve, how do you see the role of internal communicators developing? How should the relationship with other employees with communication responsibilities work?
  • On average, four people in a large business work in IC, 0.24 in a medium-sized. Do organisations generally have enough IC resource? What about smaller businesses?

Joining the chat will be Steve Doswell, IoIC chief executive (@stevedoswell), Sheila Parry, managing director of theblueballroom which carried out the research (@sheila_parry) and Liz Cochrane (@liz_cochrane), director of studies for the MA in internal communication management, Kingston University.
