The IPR Organizational Communication Research Center (OCRC) aggregates and summarizes research in employee communication and engagement.

The OCRC plays a critical role in shaping the global practice of organizational communication through:

  • Ensuring that critical knowledge for guiding current and future leaders in our profession is readily available
  • Creating new communities – real and virtual – where tomorrow’s leaders can network, seek solutions and ideate tomorrow’s models

Every effective organization has a central process through which employees and members share information, create relationships, make sense of their organization and “construct” culture and values. This process combines people, messages, communication channels, diverse meanings, practices and purposes.

Internal communication is the foundation of modern organizations and provides employees with important information about their jobs, organization, environment and each other. Effective communication can help motivate, build trust, create shared identity and spur engagement.
