Businesses that are good at internal communication outperform their competitors 1.7 times, according to Towers Watson. Because when you’re good at communicating amongst yourselves, you’re not just better at winning customers or closing deals. Articulate businesses are better businesses. They find it easier to explain their ideas, to fire up their people, to work together well.
Quietroom helps internal communications teams talk in a way that’s clear, vivid and real – so their story makes sense, so their ideas come to life, so their message sticks.
What we’ve achieved
We helped Whitbread explain automatic enrolment to 40,000 employees. A thousand people joined the scheme before a single person was enrolled – a 17-fold increase on the usual rate. We’ve since written a new Code of Conduct for Whitbread based around their values, created all the material Whitbread needed to launch a new expenses policy, and helped the business communicate a potentially controversial change from weekly to monthly pay.
We helped the internal comms team at Virgin Media launch an online community to help leaders and managers tap into communication expertise from across the business.
We helped Lloyds Bank motivate and encourage 35,000 people through a major operational change. We ran a one-day event based around fantastic communication from outside the business world, designed to inspire people about what was possible. Participants gave us an average score of 92%.
