Rolls-Royce hires Fishburn Hedges for internal review

Global aerospace, defence, marine and energy group Rolls-Royce is putting its internal communications efforts under the microscope as it launches a worldwide audit.

The FTSE-100 firm has hired Fishburn Hedges to carry out the review, with a remit to analyse internal comms in all of Rolls-Royce's business units around the world.

The move marks the second phase in an internal comms revamp, led by head of internal comms Ghassan Karian.

Rolls-Royce's in-house team last year implemented a review of internal comms at a corporate level. Some changes were made following the results, including the relaunch of the employee magazine Rolls-Royce World, now titled The Post.

On the business unit audit, Karian said: 'The aim is to improve communication in a way that is more actively focused on each business unit.'

FH won the business after a competitive pitch against Synopsis Communications Consultants, MCA Banner McBride, Bell Pottinger and Smythe Doward Lambert.

FH director and head of internal comms Nicholas Wright heads the brief.
