Useful vs pushy personlization within the workforce

Useful vs pushy personlization within the workforce
I recently came across an informative article written by Sean Rusinko in which he focused on the personalization of mass information to recipients from a customer perspective. Being in the business of mass information distribution I am of the opinion that many of the same principles could equally apply to internal employee communications. In his recent post entitled: The Line Between Useful and Pushy Personalisation , Sean Rusinko focuses on impo...

The Benefits of Gamification using a Social Software Platform

The Benefits of Gamification using a Social Software Platform
Games. Which one of us has not been thrilled at one time or another by many sorts of games? Rhetorical, of course. The origin of games goes back thousands of years to civilisations such as the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and many others. Paintings of games have been uncovered in tombs, and ancient gaming equipment has been uncovered in many biblical cities, such as the Ur of Chaldee. Games have evolved in many different ways over time, but ...

What do athletes have in common with Internal Employee Communication?
Between 1891 and 1903, the 15 fastest male athletes in the world all ran the 100 metres in a time of 10.8. On 16 August 2009, Usain Bolt of Jamaica shattered the then 100 metres record, in Berlin, bolting home in a time of 9.58 seconds. How things have changed! At the other distance extreme, Dennis Kimetto of Kenya established a new IAAF world record for the men’s marathon in Berlin by winning in a time of 2.02.57 hours on September 28, 2014. Con...

Why team collaboration is easy to learn but difficult to master

Why team collaboration is easy to learn but difficult to master
Formed in 1988, many regard the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra as the best of its kind in the world. Whether you share this view or, believe instead, that this accolade should go to the Berlin or Vienna Philharmonic, each produces brilliant renditions of classical music.

Information Age: Taking enormous strides for internal communication - without email

Information Age: Taking enormous strides for internal communication - without email
“That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.” These famous words of Neil Armstrong, on making the first moon landing on 20 July 1969, are still quoted in many contexts to this day and will continue to have great significance for millennia. Symbolically, this sentiment of making enormous strides can also apply in another space. This is the profoundly positive impact that the Information Age has had on internal (and other) commun...

What Nelson Mandela Can Teach Us about Internal Communications

What Nelson Mandela Can Teach Us about Internal Communications
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart. Nelson Mandela Few would deny Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was one of the greatest and most inspiring leaders of modern times. The Nobel Peace Prize he shared in 1993, however, only recognised a small part of this leader's genius as he was also a philosopher, orator and one who cherished humanity and justice. In addit...
