Integrated Corporate Communications Strategy (ICCS)
The owner of the company recognized that far too often, organisations do not have a formal, written communication plan that clearly outlines “where they are going” in terms of communication strategy. An integrated communication plan will be tied to the organisation’s overall mission, vision, values and objectives and will clearly support these objectives through communication with a variety of critical audiences.
XLR8 Communications provides the strategic communication vision and framework to the communication divisions in organisations that have them and in the case of those that don’t, leads a team of outsourced professional communicators and event managers.
The focus of the ICCS is the organisation’s reputation which is derived from the relationships it establishes with seven critical audiences:
5. The local community
6. Local, Provincial and National Government
7. The Public at large.
One of the core strengths of XLR8 Communications and its ability to be profitable is the fact that the management is of the highest calibre. The management consists of 8 individuals, most of whom have tertiary education, who collectively have almost 35 years of experience in this industry.
Communication Products and Services
An organisation should be supremely concerned with its ability to influence various constituencies through communication. It is in every organisation’s best interests to ensure that its important constituencies – or stakeholders – hold certain beliefs or feelings about the organisation. Organisations want employees to believe that the organisation is a great place to work. They want customers to believe that the organisation is a great place to buy products or services. They want shareholders to believe that the organisation represents a sound financial investment. They want communities to believe that the organisation is a good corporate citizen. And they want the general public to believe that the organisation is honest, reliable, responsible and going to deliver on its promises and contracts.
The company offers the following range of services:
• Developing Integrated Corporate Communication Strategies
• Communication Research, Measurement and Evaluation
• Communications with External Audiences
• Communications with Employees
• Issues Management and Crisis Communication
• Developing and Implementing Communication Plans
• Selecting the Appropriate Media and Tools
Eventing Products and Services
An essential part of many ICCS’s is superior event management. This can range from press conferences, road shows, golf days, one-on-one lunches, cocktail parties, launches, roof-wettings to huge public concerts and gathering. XLR8 Communications is thus skilled in staging these kinds of events.
