Change Communications and the Future of IC - 5.17



One of the biggest pieces of news in the internal communications world was Slack being acquired by Salesforce. We were curious as to how Slack's internal communications team was handling this big news and delivering it to their fellow employees. Luckily, we were able to connect with the experts and even collaborated via the Slack platform to produce this episode.





This week, we talked with Jessica Bauer and Amanda Atkins on how they handled this big change. They walk us through their planning, communication, and execution of delivering news to others in an efficient way. We also discuss the super power every ICPro needs, what you should know about integration planning, and so much more.
