In close cooperation with IRF, in various workshops, the Group management identifies seven common company principles that have been represented as a symbol.

They are more motivated and take the initiative to form teams across the Group and reach new goals together. Internal communications — guideline for employees in particularly unsettled times. Internal communications become hugely important when a company is experiencing changes. They ensure that all stakeholders clearly understand their particular roles in this transformation, and are provided with the same level of information.

IRF provided an internationally operating pharmaceutical company with communications support while it relocated its European headquarters from Lausanne to Zurich. The starting point was the comprehensive communications concept for the internal and external communications. A core element here was training managers to provide employees with clear and simultaneously empathetic communications.

Executives successfully remained in dialogue with the employees during a phase that was characterised by uncertainties. In spite of the unwelcome news, employees engaged constructively in the consultancy process, and this in turn impacted positively on the parameters of the severance scheme.

The company was able to finalize the consultancy process on schedule. Closures or the relocation of production sites trigger uncertainties and fears amongst employees, business partners and public authorities. However difficult the messages may be, the process needs to be tightly controlled at the communications level, in order to ensure that additional frustration and vulnerabilities are not created. With the help of its international partner FTI Consulting, IRF provided a globally operating chemicals manufacturer, domiciled in Switzerland, with communications support during the closure of a production site in Great Britain.

The starting point was the classic communications concept for internal and external communications. A key aspect was preparing the management team for the need to provide employees with the best possible support during this delicate process. The consultation process with employees proceeded constructively and was wrapped up within the set timeframe. A world-leading Swiss industrial company shows strong growth and almost doubles its workforce within around two years. This also leads to greater demands and requirements in terms of communication in the company.

Ground needs to be made up, particularly in internal communication. IRF developes immediate and regular measures to make internal communication systematic.

The measures focus on open dialogue between the Management Board and employees to build trust, and guidance and identification of new employees with the company. IRF also advises on and assists with a global employee survey and creating internal publications in the event of ballots. This investment is expensive, however, and opinions are divided as to who should pay.

Together with a globally operating company that is active in the field of modernising public energy infrastructures, IRF develops communication activities to position the company as the industry and innovation leader in its specialist field. These measures enable the company to exercise direct influence on public opinion, by for example getting its own executives appointed to key steering committees as industry representatives. As a link between politicians and the research community, the company makes an important contribution towards supplying innovative technologies that significantly support the realisation of the energy objectives.

The head office of a globally active pharmaceutical company is based in Switzerland. The company would like to be perceived as a relevant market player on the Swiss business scene and in the Swiss health policy. One particular aim is to strengthen the perception of the economic, social and societal importance of the company in Switzerland among specific target groups and political opinion leaders.

Universities and large companies in the Zurich region have decided to launch a cooperation with research and the private sector, with the aim of developing innovative and sustainable solutions for Switzerland.
