A corporate communications agency specialises in supporting corporate clients in their communications with internal and external stakeholders, across a variety of channels. A corporate communications agency acts as an extension of a company’s corporate comms team, helping it to build and protect the reputation of the company and ensuring its strategy and corporate news is clearly communicated to all of its internal and external stakeholders, including employees, media, customers, government, NGOs and other audiences.
In today’s always-on media world, companies often need support to manage the sheer scale of information that needs to be communicated internally, externally, and across multiple channels. As a specialist corporate communications agency, Stampa goes the extra mile to understand our clients’ culture, the complexities of their business, the priorities of leadership, and how to translate complex strategy into an engaging and inspiring story.
As a corporate communications firm, we advise on communications strategies that are aligned with business objectives, craft messages and storylines that hit home with your target audience, and communicate them across the channels that connect with your audiences. For many of our clients, a comms agency is a trusted extension of their in-house team, with our corporate communication experts not only providing extra resources but also fresh perspectives to overcome recurring challenges.
Our corporate communication experts provide tailored advice and support across internal and external communications.
Internal communications: The most successful and effective companies keep their employees informed, engaged, and aligned with the company strategy. Whether you need to communicate about change, react to unexpected events or drive employee engagement, Stampa gets your message across. With our full-service approach, our corporate communication experts can advise you on the optimal internal communication strategy, help you shape storylines and messages that support your strategy, and engage with your employees through the most appropriate channels, including intranets, newsletters, Yammer and town halls.
Did you know that 82% of CEOs think their employees understand their company’s strategy, but only a third of employees agree? We will help you fill the knowledge gap, making sure all your employees share the company’s goals and understand your strategic priorities. And remember that good internal communications goes both ways, especially in today’s socially connected world. Start the conversation and listen to what your employees have to say. They’re the closest to your customers or clients, so they’ll give you the valuable input to optimise your services. Ultimately, Internal communication boosts engagement, trust and productivity. Expert storytelling and engaging content, delivered through targeted channels, keeps the information flowing and employees onside with your objectives.
External communications: Every company has a wide ecosystem of external stakeholders – including customers, people living in the communities where they operate, partners, suppliers, governmental and non-governmental organisations – all of whom have no direct influence in the running of the company but who are affected by its activities. Good relations and clear communications with these important stakeholder groups is important to protect the reputation of the company and to support the smooth-running of its business.
As your go-to communications firm, Stampa helps our clients optimise and execute their external communications. We start by developing a detailed comms plan tailored to your company’s specific needs. We advise on and develop your key messages and themes, identify your target audiences and most relevant channels to reach them.
We also define your communication goals:
Build your reputation: Raise awareness of your organisation, products and expertise, create recognition of your company’s relevance or establish thought leadership on key topics and themes.
Protect your reputation: Create goodwill for your organisation, deal with potential crises in an authentic way or build understanding for an internal reorganisation.
As former journalists and experts in strategic content, we can tailor your story to the full spectrum of external communications channels, including social media, websites, blogs, white papers, brochures and newsletters.
Information has never been harder to manage, especially for companies that need to communicate with a wide range of audiences: employees, customers, NGOs, and politicians, to name a few.
To cope with this, organisations can benefit from bringing the skills and practices of a newsroom into the heart of their communications. Thinking and acting like a media organisation is a growing trend among larger companies, giving rise to a new breed of corporate newsrooms.
We define a corporate newsroom as a central team that communicates your organisation’s strategy, using editorial standards, practices, and a journalistic mindset.
It tackles information overload
It’s never been harder for companies to cut through the clutter and noise of our information-saturated world. Professionalising how you tell your story, to internal and external audiences, will help you get heard. Learning tried and tested tricks from the media world, like great storytelling and human-interest angles, is key.
It stops misinformation spreading
This is especially important at times of crisis. In a 24/7 information culture, news travels fast – and that means real news AND fake news. At times like this, misinformation can quickly escalate into a full-fledged crisis. A newsroom culture can ensure you get your story out – for your employees and external audiences – before they hear it anywhere else.
It builds authenticity and transparency
Having a trusted and consistent voice from the company is key. A central newsroom can do this, building a sense of authenticity and transparency and helping you speak with one voice.
It makes you human
One of the most common questions you hear from any journalist about a story is ‘what’s the human angle?’ News organisations know that stories about real people work best. This translates into a corporate setting too – a newsroom culture can help you humanise your organisation, helping your employees and external stakeholders see behind the corporate façade, into the heart and soul of your organisation.
It boosts employee engagement
And when you do get your story out there, accurately, quickly and compellingly, you will be boosting employee engagement, which after all, is the aim of any internal comms team. PR Week reported a survey recently by the Confederation of British Industry which said that 48 percent of companies see employee engagement as their key business priority. So now is the time to think of ways to turbo-charge engagement, and a newsroom approach could be one of the answers.
It clarifies your company’s strategy
If you are still not persuaded about how a corporate newsroom can help, think about that other core task facing any corporate and internal comms team – communicating the company’s strategy. It’s easier said than done and, frankly, many companies are struggling to do it effectively.
These are just some of the reasons why a corporate newsroom can help you – and why they are on the rise among some of the world’s most communications-savvy companies.
Putting a newsroom structure in place need not be as hard as it sounds, and certainly need not involve new headcount or costs. In many cases, it’s simply a question of adopting a journalistic mindset, thinking more like a media organisation and applying a consistent set of editorial practices to help you tell and target your stories more effectively.
