Localize Employee Communications

 

Getting employee attention is hard enough.
Put it in another language, and the barriers are even higher.

Create a virtual team of local co-creators and give them the right skills, tools and processes to take global employee communications to a new level. I can help you establish, run, and optimize a localization process, from one-off trainings to longer projects.

Let me show you how and you’ll get:

  • More clicks, more feedback, more engagement.
  • Wider distribution and greater impact from your global corporate content.
  • Skilled communicators in local markets who are trained to create and localize content and gather local feedback.
  • More agile communications that are responsive to your audiences.

Pitfalls and tips for measuring employee communications globally

Six types of content
that are

Assess System

We’ll talk to your resources, evaluate their skills, development needs, and aspirations. We’ll ask them to show us the tools they work with, and together we’ll examine your current channels.

Train Resources

We can help you determine the job profiles you need for localization, and we can train the resources you have now on how to tell better stories, use brand guidelines correctly, be more visual, and better leverage the assets you’re creating.

Develop Process

We can help you develop and deploy a global content strategy and reinforce it with better face-to-face communication tools.

On-Site Support

We work closely with local resources to show them how to better adapt their content to corporate models and show local management how communications can help them achieve business goals.
