Are employees even "remotely" interested in employee communications?
In this episode of ICology, I talk with Jenni Field, Director at Redefining Communications, and Benjamin Ellis, CEO of SocialOptic, about 2019 research they conducted into remote workers and internal communication. The two of them combined their superpowers to unearth some new data on what employees are interested in and who they are interested in hearing it from.

Think Tank - The Wayfair Walkout's impact on internal communication
This wasn't exactly what I planned with the new Think Tank episodes but I went with it anyway. Today's "Wayfair Walkout" should be watched closely by internal communicators. Could something like this happen at your business? Absolutely. So what will you do when it happens? That's what you need to answer. Listen to my take on what internal communicators should be doing in case you have your own #wayfairwalkout.
Internal communication and co-creation with Pinaki Kathiari (Local Wisdom)
Pinaki Kathiari has become a true friend to the internal communications industry. And I'm proud to have him on ICology to talk about the challenges and opportunities of co-creation in internal communication. What is co-creation? Listen to the episode and find out how it can help communicators across industries and seniority levels. Pinaki is also once again a workshop leader at PRSA Connect this year. At last year's conference, his workshop was the highest-rated session from the entire event. And I expect nothing short of that again this year.

Personal branding for internal communicators, with Rachel Miller (All Things IC)
It truly was hard to believe but the last time Rachel Miller was on ICology was to talk about Brexit. . . nearly 3 years ago! But she's back, but not talking about Brexit - even though the rest of the world is. Rachel Miller, the founder of All Things IC and knower of all things internal communications, is back to talk about how communicators can build a stronger personal brand inside their own companies. It's a topic she's passionate about and will be addressing as the opening keynote at this year's PRSA Connect 19 conference this May. #prsaconnect
A Must for Internal Comms Pros
If you are an internal comms pro, you should definitely listen to Chuck's podcast -- and follow his other work too. He's super connected and always interviewing people doing great work in this field!
Invaluable podcast for internal communicators!
At the end of every episode, Chuck Gose asks his interviewee what's the one tool they rely on most to make sense of the world. For me, and I'm sure for many other internal communicators, that tool is the iCology podcast.
Highly recommended listening for all communicators. Diverse topics and speakers make each episode fresh and interesting. Long may it continue!
