Old school comms at Google

I’m an internal comms geek. So when I went to Google’s London HQ this week I was really surprised that their internal comms people favour the old school poster-in-toilet approach.

Proof positive that even in the most tech-savvy of environments you still need traditional print and face-to-face internal comms channels.

But in the loo? Is that an appropriate environment to be advertising in? Internal communicators are pretty split on the issue.

More on GoogleLocalGov soon.

  1. The loo is an excellent place for internal comms, content will be actually read, unlike the council magazine which tends to get tossed into the recycling bin after a cursory flick through.
