CfF: Internal Communication, BledCom International Public Relations Symposium

7 листопада 2010

The program committee of 18th BledCom International Public Relations Research Symposium at Lake Bled, Slovenia (1-2 July 2011) welcomes papers from both academics and practitioners addressing internal communication in corporations, non-profits, and government agencies.

Some themes relevant to this topic are: employee communication, human resource management, employee engagement, change management/communication, corporate culture and its impact on employee satisfaction and participation, and measurement of internal communication processes and outcomes. The committee welcomes papers from academics and practitioners. Papers may be conceptual or based on empirical data (using quantitative and qualitative methodologies). Case studies explicating various aspects of employee communication are also welcome.

Internal communication is paramount for organizational effectiveness. But while today more people work in internal communications than ever and while more material resources are spent on it, trust that people have in their organisations is lower, as well as their commitment and organizational loyalty. We seem to live in a time of internal communication paradox.

The conference: BledCom symposium is an annual gathering of scholars and practitioners in public relations and related disciplines to discuss contemporary communication and management problems. So far, eight books and six special issues of academic journals have been published based on previous symposia, see: www.bledcom.com/home/knowledge

Location: Historic Villa Bled by picturesque Alpine Lake Bled in Slovenia.

Special issue of Public Relations Review: The Program Committee has planned a special issue of the Public Relations Review on the topic of Internal Communication. Papers presented at the 2011 BledCom symposium may be revised and submitted for peer review and publication consideration to the special issue.
