In early 2016, employee morale and confidence at BBVA Compass were in need of a boost. To help improve morale and reassure employees of the soundness of its business and transformation and strategies, the bank moved its Employee Communications function out of Corporate Communications and into Talent & Culture (i.e. HR), where it now serves as a vanguard of storytelling and driver of culture for the entire employee base. Since then, BBVA Compass has seen a notable rise in employee engagement and morale, as well as a growing retention of, and belief in, its corporate strategy.


You will learn how your External Communications team can leverage your organization’s internal stories, as part of their external content strategy, to shape culture and lift morale, including how to:

  • Prioritize your company’s culture and purpose when planning and developing editorial content
  • Use vibrant stories and pictures of employees to humanize your company and its strategies to your audiences
  • Use internal content as part of your external strategy 
  • Pull in your executive leadership team to educate and inspire your workforce
  • Marshal the forces of a diverse communications team to create compelling content your employees want to share
