Title

Developing an Internal Communications Strategy

2.2

Description of the goods or services required

To deliver an internal communications strategy for the organisation focussing on the period 2013 to 2018.

The internal communications strategy will contribute to delivery of our corporate strategy, detailing how we engage our colleagues (employees and volunteers), as well as potential colleagues, in supporting our position as a positive, relevant, influential and visible organisation within Scotland.

Our internal communications strategy will support our organisation’s objectives by guiding best use of communications channels and making recommendations for new approaches and channels as appropriate. It is likely to give a clear definition of SNH’s vision and values.

Key challenges for our organisation include the dispersed location of our staff, decreasing resources and increased pressure to deliver across all areas of our business, in addition to a well-established culture in an organisation with many long-serving employees.
