We cannot silo external communication about our workplace (recruitment) and our work (marketing communication) from internal communication. Effective internal communication builds the engaged, consistently informed employee base that serves as our brand ambassadors. This adds credibility and lift to our efforts to recruit more great talent and to tell our buying audiences about the work they do.
