Effective Communications & COVID-19
Updated: Sep 30, 2020
Very few companies are immune to the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic. From supply chain disruptions, government restrictions, and facility closures to market volatility and changes in customer demands – a company’s need to communicate effectively to its stakeholders cannot be ignored. Your company’s communications to internal and external audiences must instill confidence and reflect reality through a clear articulation of the company’s fundamental strengths, how the company is addressing challenges presented by the pandemic, and what plans are being made for the future. This is particularly important as companies worldwide begin to look toward a more remote workforce.
