Update | Taken the 2012 State of the Nation: APAC and India Internal Communications Survey yet? Survey extended till Oct 19.
The 2012 State of the Nation: APAC and India Internal Communications Survey is on! The Survey aims to gauge the progress, maturity and impact of internal communications in the region.
It is the first ever study from India among practitioners and is meant to be completed by professionals who work or have worked for organizations either in the capacity of a leader or an individual contributor to the internal communications function.
Last year’s survey covered a host of topics including the role, function, social media, measurement, channels, challenges and the future of the function.
This year the survey invites practitioners from the APAC region as well to participate and share their perspectives on the subject.
The 2012 survey covers topics such as employee engagement, change management, elevating presence of the function, leadership communications, internal crisis communications, manager communication, conflict management and stakeholder management.
I received feedback that benchmarking compensation may not provide relevant insights considering the sensitivities involved with sharing such information. I dropped the topic from the list this year.
This survey will continue to probe the level of confidence among internal communicators, the investment made, channels used, the priorities, impact of social media and seek feedback on what must internal communicators do more to be more effective.
Take the survey now! It will take 10 minutes of your time. Survey closes October 14, 2012.
