Internal policy covers legal obligations and workplace guidelines on employee confidentiality, data privacy, online behavior, health and safety, and other essential requirements for running a business.
For most organizations, the challenge is how to implement internal policies when every employee needs to understand them and how they relate to their role.

Effective internal communications ensure your policies are embedded throughout your organization – not just filed away, never to be seen again.
A campaign approach with SnapComms achieves the best results for policy communications. The powerful combination of channels drives readership and reinforces your message in ways traditional corporate emails never can.
Desktop tickers make staff notice when new policies or updates are available. Tickers uniquely get attention without distracting multi-tasking staff, such as those in call centers. They’re especially effective in promoting policy compliance.
A series of screensavers visually engage employees with thought-provoking questions such as “Is this legal?” or “How would my manager feel if he/she knew?”. Total format flexibility rouses initial awareness and prompts further understanding.
Staff quizzes are an entertaining and interactive way to reinforce training on new policies and procedures. After a training workshop, send attendees a knowledge quiz to check their understanding, identify any gaps and help plan future sessions.
The RSVP tool can drive attendance for policy training sessions. Staff are encouraged to attend, which increases the value of the sessions and improves organizational compliance.
Use visual formats like digital newsletters to promote policies. If there’s a specific policy that requires highlighting, dedicate an entire issue, combining employee stories, explainer videos etc.
Use digital signage and screensavers to generate awareness and build interest in important training sessions. For example, reminder notifications and countdown-style messages.
Take advantage of these special features of the SnapComms platform to improve the success of your internal policy communication.
