The history of Internal Communication

Bonus Episode of the Future of Internal Communication podcast

03 May 2023

It’s hard to analyse the present and future of internal communication without some understanding of its past.

We’re thrilled the IoIC is partnering a new research project, funded by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The Institutional History of Internal Communication has been awarded funding to explore the value internal communication has added to some of our most well-known organisations since the 1880s.

In this episode, Jen, Dom and Cat welcome Dr. Michael Heller, Professor Michael Rowlinson and Dr. Joe Chick. They learn more about the long history of internal communication project and what this research project hopes to achieve for both industry and internal communication professionals.
