New Report: The Succession Trap. How the C-suite thinks about leadership transitions and why it's wrong

Employee Communications

Invest in Your Most Valuable Assets

In large organizations, finding the right style and tone when speaking to employees is a challenge. Communications can range from announcing a major restructuring to an invitation to a company picnic.

For more than 40 years, History Factory has helped clients uncover and use their authentic content to address a wide array of situations including:

  • Change management, so you can drive change without losing your true character
  • Cultural integration, including mergers and acquisitions
  • Sales force messaging and motivation, such as leveraging research on longstanding relationships or industry expertise
  • On-boarding programs, which give new employees valuable insight into your organization’s history, experiences, traditions and beliefs, as well as their role in guiding its future
  • Reinforcement of key planks of your internal communication strategy by using your organization’s history to authenticate a new direction and build belief and confidence
  • Enticing new recruits to join your organization by engaging them in your organization’s legacy and their potential role in determining its future
  • Augmenting your archival assets and institutional memory through employee crowdsourcing of content
  • Providing content to support major events, such as annual, industry, and regional meetings and conferences
