When we say “public relations,” people often think of tactics like media pitching (hello, big news stories!), social media content, community partnerships and creative events. And yes, those are all things that Clairemont Communications does!
AND our expertise extends quite a bit further into other areas of communications, including internal communications, which is also one of our specialties.
Internal Communications? How Can That Help Me?
Internal communications means just that – that Clairemont serves as an extension of a company’s internal communications team. We have a track record of quickly getting up to speed on our clients’ projects, spearheading initiatives and helping to move the needle immediately.
For example, Ingersoll Rand, a global industrial manufacturer, turned to Clairemont to oversee several critical internal communications initiatives. When the Ingersoll Rand Industrials segment merged with Gardner Denver, Inc. to form the new Ingersoll Rand (IR), Clairemont helped to design a successful communications program to unite 16,000 employees across 70 countries for a seamless Day 1 integration. We helped craft sustainability reports, launch awards programs and roll out a $150 million equity grant with a bell-ringing event at the New York Stock Exchange — all in lock-step with the Ingersoll Rand communications team.
What Internal Communications Might Include
While working with Ingersoll Rand, here are just a few of the initiatives Clairemont helped to execute:
- Global M&A communications strategy
- Internal communications plan for 16,000 employees
across 70 countries
- Communications strategy for $150 million equity grant and bell ringing ceremony with the New York Stock Exchange
- Executive leadership training/communications
- Global celebrations and town halls
- Proactive media relations in major markets
- Award recognition program
- Sustainability report research, writing and production
- Content strategy for blog, website, intranet, social media
- Video planning, direction and production
- E-Trainings for employee programs
… and much more.
The question is — where do you need support to move the needle?
