Here you’ll find all that you need to help you communicate your message to your fellow employees. That includes everything from how to devise an internal communications plan; to how to execute it with the best tools & channels to engage your audience; and even some ideas on how to measure your success.

The emphasis is on giving you practical guidance and resources – and you’ll find a wealth of them right here. But before you read on, a very brief word on our internal communications policy:

  • If you have important messages that are relevant to all employees in a Region or Business Group  and if you need to communicate must-know messages that apply to all DSM colleagues, please send your request to us.
  • If you need to communicate local, site-specific or function-related communications messages this is the place for you – check out the 9 step approach!

OK, let the communication begin!
