There are many different ways to communicate with our diverse range of audiences at Warwick. Targeted communications tend to be more effective than sending out the same message to everyone which can get lost in the noise, so it's wise to think about exactly what you want to achieve, and who really needs to know.
The central Internal Communications team can offer advice and guidance on University-wide staff communications, and manages a number of all-staff channels. However, local level communication takes place throughout the University and is handled by departmental communicators and administrators. Read our quick guide and channels guide to get started.
Central channels include:
- insite - our staff hub (c.60,000 page views per week)
- inbox insite - our weekly all-staff enewsletter (via email to all staff every Tuesday afternoon)
- @warwickinsite - our staff twitter account (c.1,800 followers plus text service sign-ups)
- Communications Champions - our network of volunteer comms ambassadors
- Digital screens - dynamic noticeboards dotted all over campus for static or video content
Although not handled by the IC team, the following options can also help you share your message. (Click on the link for contact details.)
- Payslip messages - promotional one-liners printed onto the bottom of payslips
- Lamppost banners - fly the flag for your campaign on the main route through campus
- Faculty and departmental websites - the best place for discipline-specific news and events
- Departmental newsletters - a great way to target specific groups of staff
- The Big Screen - ideal if you have video content or animations to share, or for live streaming
