Internal comms pro Matt Batten reflects on his experience of managing his physical and mental health in the workplace – and the greater support that employers can offer.

Internal Comms and Employee Engagement are increasingly being recognised for what they can do for both profile (traditionally the realm of PR) and sales (where usually advertising stakes its claim).
