  • KEY FINDINGS
  • SPECIAL OFFER
To survive in a competitive marketplace, organizations need effective internal communication practices to ensure that critical leadership messages around products, strategy and goals are successfully conveyed to employees. In many companies, middle management acts as the communication bridge between corporate leadership and employees.


Unfortunately, middle management can also act as a communication barrier or bottleneck that inhibits effective internal communications. Best Practices, LLC conducted this research to spotlight winning approaches, tools, and technologies that help leadership effectively communicate to and through middle management. Specifically, this study measures the effectiveness of different communication message types, channels used, and sending frequencies. It also addresses the role of communication skills in hiring, evaluating and training middle managers.

Study Snapshot

For this benchmarking study, Best Practices®, LLC gathered insights and performance data from a total of 26 communication leaders representing 23 leading national and global organizations.

Key topics include:

  • Study Overview
  • Key Findings & Trends
  • Message Channels
  • Message Recall
  • Strategy Alignment
  • Hiring and Training Communicators

Sample Key Findings

Company Strategy/Goals Disseminated Quarterly: Most leaders believe middle managers are well-informed regarding overall company strategy. These leaders tend to communicate company strategy and course updates to middle management on a quarterly basis.
  • The Communication “Importance vs. Measurement” Dichotomy: Most leaders say communication skills are pivotal in middle management hiring; however, few provide any sort of communications testing or feedback in the application process or during performance reviews. Of those companies that do provide training, much of it is merely on-the-job training rather than formalized.
