Strategic Communications and Training Services:

Values-based Communications:
Identify, update and focus on current corporate values to align management and employees with the corporate culture and enhance productivity through values - based behavior. We help orchestrate communication programs that promote your corporate values - including new employee orientation, hiring outreach, retention, such as "values communication toolkits." We train front-line supervisors how to communicate effectively with their employees.

Message Development for Leadership:
Whether target audiences are internal or external, develop the strategic message platform that will serve the communications outreach needs of the organization's leaders, and map the communications conduits for best implementation to reach  those audiences. We train people how to do communications internally, from HR, PR or CEO perspective.

Acquisitions & Mergers Communications for Employee Engagement:
When mergers and acquisitions occur, or when functional departments are outsourced - such as IT, accounting, or training - affected employees suffer a dual-identity crisis.  Our professionals can be "embedded" at your offices, employed by our firm, to develop the new communications structure and train your staff how to effectively communicate the combined culture.
Intranet "Best Practices" to Engage Employees:
Use our "Best Practices" knowledge to compare how major corporations use their intranets to convey business goals, internal "branding," and generate a sense of unified purpose among employees, overarching all internal conduits - broadcast emails, voice mails from the CEO, "Town Halls," intranet, print newsletters, bulletin boards, lunchtime speakers, CEO road shows. We train your HR or PR staff how to do effective communications through your intranet.
Diversity Communications
Communicating diversity as a unique business asset generates positive awareness, internally and externally.  Corporations that welcome women and people of color - as employees, customers and vendors - have a competitive advantage that should be communicated. Communications can help build a cohesive identity, elevate employee self-esteem and visibility.
