The Swear Jar Podcast: Employee Communications’ Newest Cagematch

Corporate Newsletter vs. Corporate Podcast

Employee Communications professionals beware….the next new(ish) thing is here! That’s right, corporate podcasts have descended upon us. That means we’ve got to figure out:

  • If corporate podcasts are worth using
  • What corporate podcasts are great (and not so great) at
  • How to use corporate podcasts to help us achieve our employee communications goals
  • How to get the most from corporate podcasts
  • The limitations of corporate podcasting

And, here’s the big thing: We’ve got to really get our heads around if, how and when to use corporate podcasts when compared with the sometimes venerated (and often scorned) corporate newsletter.

To get the latest on corporate podcasts and corporate podcasting, we turned to Happeo’s podcast guru, Jonathan Davies.

Together with my podcaster-in-crime, Elizabeth Williams, I sat down with Jonathan to tackle the issues that employee communications professionals — across industries — have with corporate podcasts.
