Communications Inside GPO

GPO will be presenting information about its internal communications at the conference Strategic Internal Communications In Government – West: Engaging Employees To Drive Change in June in San Diego, CA.

Jeffrey S. Brooke, ABC, Director of Employee Communications, and Terri C. Ehrenfeld, Employee Communications Specialist will be presenting. Here is the abstract of their presenation:

Ghosts, New Years’ Resolutions and Other Agency Information: How To Create Simple Employee Polls That Gather And Distribute Important Information

The U.S. Government Printing Of?ce (GPO) started polling employees on October 31, 2007 with this question: Do you believe in ghosts? From this humorous beginning, a weekly employee poll located on the home page of GPO’s intranet site caught on like wild?re. GPO’s Employee Communications Of?ce uses their weekly polls to gather business-related information, to solicit suggestions, to entertain – and to provide education and resources.

In this presentation you will learn how to:

  • Use simple, commercially-available software to launch your own employee polls
  • Promote the poll site to employees and encourage participation
  • Create a mix of questions that gathers and distributes valuable information – and uses educational entertainment to keep employees coming back for more

This session will provide a live demonstration to show how easy it is to create your own employee poll.
