VENUE: Richmond Event Centre, No. 1 North Brunswick Street
TIME: 10am - 12 noon
Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI) invites you to an exclusive all-member network meeting on mobilising internal audiences behind sustainability objectives.
The success of your company’s sustainable business plan depends on effective communication of sustainability at all levels of the organisation. Employees are tuned into this agenda and are looking to their CEOs to respond to social and environmental issues* and are more vocal about their expectations of the company**.
This network meeting will focus on internal communications around sustainability and the best media and messages to use to reach employees. How can you reach remote workers? How can you engage with people who work shifts or are often offsite? How can you increase visibility of sustainability across the organisation and make it an everyday experience for employees?
We will hear from an expert panel of members on how they engage their employees when so many people today are suffering from information overload or are feeling disconnected from important issues with sustainability themes.
Confirmed speakers for a panel discussion:
After the panel, there will be an interactive session where you will work in groups with fellow members and explore the right messages and media to use.
Finally, we will also present the results of the recent Business Impact Map digital campaign and further explore how we, as a network, can communicate our impacts on a collective level.
This event is applicable to CSR or Sustainability Coordinators, as well as your communications colleagues. Please forward this invitation to relevant colleagues.
To register for this event please RSVP by emailing Tatiana Hodakova at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, 1st May 2019.
