Statistics body to review its internal communications

The Office of National Statistics is reviewing its internal communications as part of an agency-wide efficiency drive that is costing £75m.

Head of internal communications Andrew Dijksman said that in particular the review is looking at its internal magazine, News@ONS, and internal newswire.

He said: ‘We want to ensure that all internal information is free and coherent. If an article appears in the magazine it should be similar to the message that goes out on the newswire.’

Dijksman said that as part of the review the ONS would be conducting face-to-face briefings with management at its main offices in Southport, Newport, London and Tichfield in order to get feedback on proposed changes to internal communications, as well as on IT matters.

Agency HarknessKennett has been appointed to work on the internal communications review, which is expected to end later this year.
