PR and digital agency The Partners Group is sharing expertise to help businesses communicate effectively with their teams through the Covid-19 pandemic.

The York-based firm has produced a free downloadable guide to internal communications for businesses looking for practical advice on the best ways to communicate with their teams, many of whom will be working remotely or furloughed.

Partners Group director Karen Tinkler says, “Structured internal communication is commonplace in large organisations, but it is new territory for many SMEs. Not making the time to communicate with your employees risks leaving your business with a disillusioned and disengaged workforce when you need them most as you emerge at the other side of the Covid-19 crisis.

“Get communication right, and it will go a long way to making sure your team sticks with you. Get it wrong, and you risk losing talented and loyal people who have been left feeling alone, isolated, out of the loop and uncertain about their future.”


The free Partners Group guide includes advice on communicating effectively with employees to help business owners keep their teams right behind them as they shape future company direction and to ensure their businesses are fully resourced and well equipped to face the future.

The guide is available to download free from The Partners Group website.

Established in 1988, The Partners Group works with clients across the UK in the manufacturing, professional services, building and construction sectors, providing PR, digital and communications services.  The team also delivers global publicity campaigns through the International Public Relations Team network.
