InsideOut May 2014
Making your own TV programme is a growing trend among internal communicators – but what’s the best way to attract employee viewers? The answer may already be staring at you from your TV screen. InsideOut talks to ITN and other programme-makers about the ‘TV comfort blanket’.

The May edition also takes a look at: The great ‘to sub or not to sub’ debate – former newspaper editor and now CEO of Headlines Neil Fowler argues that writers ‘should get it right first time’ but others think that sub-editors still have a vital role to play. IoIC’s CPD programme has got off to a great start with more than 50 people already signed up – InsideOut talks to some ‘early adopters’.

There’s also an update from IoIC Live, with links to reports on all the sessions, and Michael Dunmore of Emperor argues that companies get more bang for their buck if what they tell employees is joined up with the comms for investors.
InsideOut April 2014
Internal communicators know their job is important because employee engagement can do everything from boosting productivity to cutting staff turnover. But sometimes comms can save lives…

April’s edition of InsideOut takes a look at great ways of communicating health & safety. It starts with a successful ‘crash course’ staged by E.ON to encourage its 8,000 employees not to use a mobile phone while driving.The feature also tells how Stay Safe Stan reduces risks for employees at Travis-Perkins and a Surrey agency helped cut accident figures for thousands of workers on a Brazilian oil pipeline.

Other stories this month include five ways to create a healthy workplace, how it feels to be internal communicator for the big-name journalists of The Sun and The Times, why communicating a major project is different from day-to-day comms, and a plea for more research into social media at work.
InsideOut March 2014
It’s a thorny issue but InsideOut has tackled it head on…are women better communicators than men? Firstly, John Gerzema, author of The Athena Doctrine, argues that feminine qualities are what’s needed in the future, especially in comms – and then leading communicators offer their verdict.

Also, Mairi Doyle of Bupa explains how the health company’s employees are saving lives by walking, self-confessed introvert Helen Deverell of Grant Thornton kicks off the introverts v extroverts battle, and Helena Moore of the Bromford Group asks whether employees now face too much comms ‘noise’.
