It's no secret that a great number of communication practitioners don't measure and evaluate internal communication. For many, this task is not an easy one. Though high-effective organizations have been shown to practice IC and measurement more than low-effective organizations, only 50 percent of practitioners have a formal approach to measuring and evaluating their internal communication initiatives.
As the International Association for Measurement and Evaluation of Communication (AMEC) enters into the last week of Measurement Month, an annual global program of events shining the spotlight on the importance of PR measurement, here are some of the recent resources on measurement related to internal communication for you to explore. You can find those and more under the section Measurement & Evaluation on our website.
