The Chartered Institute of Public Relations this week hosted its annual Internal Communications conference, “Putting Employees First” at the Kia Oval in central London.
Over 150 delegates gathered for the day’s line-up of speakers, presentations and interactive activities which focused around the theme of ‘Putting Employees First’. The conference was chaired by CIPR Inside Group Chair Kevin Ruck FCIPR, and delegates were welcomed by CIPR CEO Jane Wilson before hearing from speakers from organisations including Maersk Line, Network Rail, Yammer and The Engage for Success Task Force.
CIPR CEO Jane Wilson speaking at the conference, said:
Internal Communications matters more than ever. Employees are ambassadors and if you get employee engagement and internal communications right, your business will be even better and more successful going forwards.
Internal communications is thriving inside the CIPR and it is important that internal comms continues to be supported as a part of the wider PR and communications industry.
