(At half the cost of an internal team)
Your business cannot thrive without change...and successful change requires engagement.
As an executive, you know this. But change can be difficult to navigate. Remaining engaged with your employees and your customers throughout change is the only way to be successful. Communication is key to this engagement.
Culture can help employees feel connected to their company and to the work that they do on a day-to-day basis.
Depending on your unique situation (for example if you are aligning cultures across new businesses or building culture across multiple locations), we'll come up with a multi-media strategy to help strengthen your team and improve morale.
Clients must also be aware of when change is occurring- and what it is in it for them. Where possible, it's best to be transparent and upfront about the impact to their relationship with you. But these changes can also be sensitive. Communications should focus on the advantages to the customer and a clear plan for the future- this will help with retention and set realistic expectations.
Perhaps you've made a major adjustment in leadership, or you've decided to close offices and move more work offshore. No matter the change, the communication plan should be solidified prior to taking the action. Defining how you will inform employees and how you'll arm your management team with supporting materials can make these changes much smoother.
When two companies are brought together, a full evaluation of current marketing strategy effectiveness should be undertaken. Depending on the acquisition strategy, oftentimes this means determining the go-forward approach for branding and communications. Streamlining communication vendors and reducing redundancies in process not only save you money, but can save you time. We can help you evaluate current state of marketing and determine the best practice for moving forward and scaling your business as one unit.
