Voice Magazine

Voice magazine is the quarterly print title exclusively for IoIC members. Voice is rich in practical, useful content for IC practitioners - in-depth features, key research and opinions from around the industry.  Voice is an essential tool for internal communicators to gain knowledge about their work and talk openly to their peers - sharing experiences and solutions to common issues. If you're not already a member, you can join the IoIC today to start receiving a range of benefits, including Voice magazine. 

You can also visit Voice Online, where you can access content from the magazine as well as exclusive online only articles.
Voice Magazine - July 2022

In this issue of Voice, we explore what real support and awareness of LGBTQ+ issues look like once Pride month (June) is over. How can we ensure continuous dialogue where voices are heard and people feel supported? It goes beyond a moment in time – we need to continually collaborate with our communities to create allyship by connecting people to better understand each other and make positive environments.

We also explore the importance of language in our Perspective column as we hear from Will Fox about the use of pronouns, which are increasingly important to creating inclusive environments. We are also delighted to talk about our latest launch at the IoIC – our new ethical guidance. Ethics are the moral compass by which we build our professional standards, and this new guidance is our first step to support the internal communication profession when tackling ethical dilemmas. If you have an ethical dilemma you would like 
to see added, please do get in touch by emailing [email protected] 

Voice Magazine - April 2022

In this issue of Voice, we look at how we can develop our own approach to prioritisation. The advice I am hearing is to slow down and ask ourselves what is really important: does this communication need to go out in this format and timescale? Where is my time best spent to get the outcomes that will have the greatest impact on our organisations and people? It is challenging when we all feel so overwhelmed, but to help organisations and people make sense we need to push back and role model the behaviour that will ultimately create the right mindset shift to benefit ourselves, our stakeholder groups and our organisations.

Also, in this issue we explore how to create successful campaigns to drive outcomes, and the role of text messaging in internal communication, and we share more about our plans for the IoIC website and how we are working to improve your membership experience with increased personalisation.With all these topics, it comes back to considering our audiences. How can we deliver the messages and activities that drive connection, use mediums that reach them wherever they are and develop more personalised experiences to manage the overwhelming level of pace we’re all facing?

Voice Magazine - January 2022

IT HAS BEEN A FANTASTIC YEAR for internal communication, but it hasn’t been without challenge and uncertainty. Through all this, we have played a pivotal role in setting internal comms at the heart of organisational strategy. We have listened to what our people think and feel and what our leaders need, and in this issue of Voice we share more about the psychology of communication, the power of employee advocacy and how we can step back and review our channels to meet current and future needs. The end of every year is a time for reflection.

Voice Magazine - October 2021

THE FUTURE OF WORK and, in turn, the future of internal communication can feel overwhelming as so much has changed in the past 18 months. The pandemic has seen the acceleration of trends – many of which we anticipated – and thrown a brighter spotlight on the importance of relationships and how we cultivate working environments based on human communication. For organisations to succeed in a highly challenging and competitive economic environment, outstanding communication at work is more important than ever. In this issue of Voice, we explore future trends, and in our new podcast series, The Future of Internal Communication, we look further at the changing world of work, identifying the opportunities for the IC profession.  As the lynchpin that facilitates collaboration across all levels of organisations, IC’s future impact has phenomenal possibilities. In this issue, we also look at accessible communication and we share tips for hybrid working and producing great podcasts. We are thrilled to interview Gemma Puricelli from Stagecoach, who shares her experiences of communicating with a workforce largely behind the wheel.

Voice Magazine - July 2021

TALKING ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH and, in particular, suicide is extremely challenging. We \are incredibly grateful to the contributors in this issue of voice who have come forward to share their personal stories and experiences of suicide. These stories are tough to read and internal communication alone can’t take on this difficult topic, but we hope that these stories will help you to understand the part we can play to facilitate more open conversations in our organisations and help guide people affected to find the right support. Conversation is king. It’s dialogue that enables us to feel connected and gives a sense of belonging. The pandemic is shifting where we connect and, while we all get to grips with what we want our future working lives to look like, we know we want to feel listened to and involved. So, in our communities feature we explore how to create great digital spaces that enable our people to connect, collaborate and build those valuable relationships. And in this issue, youcan find out more about the IoIC’s new online community.
