Increasingly, employers are appreciating the vital role that internal communication plays. This is particularly true when managing employee anxiety during an economic downturn. ‘Communication is a powerful tool in troubled times, especially when supported by different levels of management’ says Kathryn Yates, Global Director of communication consulting at Watson Wyatt.

The team applies leading edge communication techniques to increase impact and employee engagement where HR programs are concerned, using a wide range of media tools. Watson Wyatt’s global Communication ROI Study has repeatedly shown a positive correlation between strong internal communication and an organisation’s financial performance.

The last survey, published in 2008 showed that firms with effective communications can achieve an increase in market value of 15.7%. The study also reveals the ‘secrets of top performers’ by identifying the best practices needed to effectively communicate to employees. The communication team will include Middle East based organisations in the survey for the first time 2009.
