I think the Elizabeth hit it on the head when she said "communicating holistically to employees about the business and the people."  People need to see themselves in the stories and how they fit in. But it can be a fine balancing act.

The 2011 – 2012 Change and Communication ROI Study Report | Towers Watson | Internal Comms Trends | Scoop.it

The 2011 – 2012 Change and Communication ROI Study Report sheds new light on the pivotal role that effective change and communication processes play in global organizations today. This year's findings reveal that the way companies handle employee communication is fundamentally changing, largely due to increased expectations, diversity and globalization, as well as the growth of social media and networking. The most effective change and communication organizations do the hard work of creating clear, relevant and measurable programs that drive results and create a sense of shared purpose.

How to use infographics to enhance storytelling and communication | simply communicate

How to use infographics to enhance storytelling and communication | simply communicate | Internal Comms Trends | Scoop.it

Speaking of the narrative that infographics assume, Richards says, “With infographics you will follow many of the same storytelling conventions set by literature. You set up the story - introduce your subject and then tell the story. It could be comparing to different points of view, the story of one mans life or the expansion of a company. Infographics have a elemental power to communicate the details of story by visually showing the context between elements, that flipping back and forth through pages doesn't allow.”
