Is it Internal Communication or Employee Communication? While there may be no right or wrong answer, there is a clear preference among communication professionals. The results of my recent poll were 78-28 in favor of Internal Communication. In addition, I posed the question on several LinkedIn group discussions and received a lot of feedback. I also took a look at the comments on Chuck Gose’s Intelligent Visual Solutions blog when he asked the same question on Twitter back in July. The following is a distillation of all of the opinions I read.
|Employee Communication||Internal Communication|
While I have always preferred the sound of “Employee Communication,” I clearly see the rationale for “Internal Communication.” I don’t buy the argument that Employee Communication doesn’t include management or union employees because to me those audiences are employee subsets. However, I do buy the one-directional argument and that is the point that moves me off dead center. Of course, the only thing that really matters is that we’re all doing a great job communicating.
Thanks everyone for the thoughtful comments!
