Today, Gatehouse is releasing the latest State of the Sector – our annual survey of the IC profession.
The research shows you the core processes and practises that our profession is focusing on – and reveals how your organisation stacks up against the rest of the industry.
State of the Sector is Gatehouse’s industry–wide census.
It aims to investigate the challenges internal communicators are facing – and where their focus will be over the coming months.
It investigates core processes and practices, including channel use, and explores the impact of new and emerging technologies like Enterprise Social Networks and apps.
Gatehouse has run the State of the Sector research programme since 2009.
During that time, we’ve spoken to many thousands of practitioners across hundreds of organisations in the UK, Europe and globally. Combined with our experience as one of the leading agencies operating in this area, this gives us a unique perspective on the current state of internal communications.
- The fieldwork for the latest survey was conducted in October 2014.
- With responses from 270 communicators operating in organisations ranging in size from a few hundred people to more than 50,000 employees, State of the Sector provides a comprehensive benchmark on internal communication and employee engagement activity across numerous leading organisations throughout the UK and the rest of the world.
- This report provides a summary of our key findings. It is required reading for any communicator who wants to better understand what other organisations are doing to engage their people – and to explore how their own organisation stacks up.
