We are all so busy getting our own work done that talking to colleagues and sharing information often seems impossible or not the best use of our time. But organisations are made of people all working towards the same goals. Communicating effectively with one another is the only way we can be efficient, make the most of other’s skills and experience, and avoid duplication.
Conservation organisations with internal communications that support a cohesive organisational culture to achive their objectives are also the most effective. These organisations have regular staff meetings, appropriate communications systems for the size and spread of their organisation, and a positive culture of sharing and communication. They will also have an internal communications strategy, which is monitored and reviewed regularly.
