Strategic Communication is about ensuring consistency between the impact of your message on the recipient and what you intend to say.
We work on ensuring that the conversations that go on organizational levels are said in the right environment, related to the intended context, and delivered in the most meaningful and accurate way. We equip the organization with tools to ensure strategic objectives are cascaded to all levels without ambiguity while empowering those involved. We support in opening two way channels on professional grounds to ensure added value streams and solid engagement.
Employee engagement describes the team’s commitment to the job at hand, and how aligned and respectful they are to the overall organizational goals. It’s about the self-belonging to the company, and how motivated they can be every day to actually come to work and make a difference. It’s about having a clear idea of where he/she is and what he/she is doing for the company.
At IBG we put a lot of focus on employee engagement. Having employees who are proud to be working for your business, are loyal, and not afraid to speak up their ideas will go the extra mile for the company. We walk your departments heads through a process that maintains a healthy employee engagement geared towards effectiveness in a positive environment. We do this through our structured approach supported by our leadership coaching.
Effective internal branding can have a great impact on the overall operations of the organization.
Effective internal branding will enhance brand equity, customer focus, and shareholder value. But it is important to pay attention to how the communication is done in the process: how well the message is understood, and whether or not there is a change in behavior.
At IBG, we go through a rigorous process where we create internal strategies that transform people within the company, and give the organization an overall customer centric edge. We work in partnerships with top management to make sure the internal changes of strategy match the overall external strategies of the organization.
