Remotely interested: Communicating with remote workers in a public service world


Sheffield, Friday 27 September
South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue, 197 Eyre Street, Sheffield, S1 3FG

How do you communicate with remote workers or non-desk based employees? What are the solutions to one of the biggest engagement conundrums to crack? What do staff and managers need from their comms team?

This timely LG Comms workshop in Sheffield on Friday 27 September seeks to answer all of those questions.

Grounded in research, the event will kick off with an overview of brand new research into remote worker communication. Published earlier this year, ‘Remotely Interested’ debunks some common myths about which channels work and what staff want.

The workshop will then offer practical case studies from across the public sector- including councils and emergency services- on some of the innovative solutions teams have deployed to tackle this issue within their own organisations.
