    Interesting topic.-full monty or pick and mix? There are many instances where a halfway house is used but never works. Sometimes it is better to go the whole hog but this needs courage and commitment-something in very short supply in most organisations.

    I think it depends on the size of the company; for very large multinational organisations I think it is very smart to pick and mix your comms, otherwise the information is overwhelming. For smaller companies it is better to have the whole picture to allow you to understand how certain decisions can be for the best even though they are not good for you. To summarise, pick and mix for large organisations to get a managable quantity of relevant information and full montey for small organisations to understand your companies position.

    This approach would work in large organisations. I think, however, in a call centre environment this would be more problematic. With employees having relatively small amounts of unscheduled time the desire to comment on corporate intranet articles inbetween calls may not be there, I believe. It’s not a reflection on employee engagement, maybe more down to the employee profile.

    I can imagine, however, it could work in organisations such as the police or NHS.

    Allocating time is always a factor to keep information up-to-date. As a resource this is greatest in a large organisation and as such best kept there.

    The jury seems to be out on this one so I guess we will have to wait and see.
