Words&Pictures

For over 20 years, Words&Pictures have been at the forefront of agency innovation in internal communications and employee engagement. We’ve been working with some of the world’s most respected and admired brands, winning over 160 awards in the process.

A fresh perspective…

In 2016 we introduced Lifetime Employer Communications™ (LEC™) to the industry. It’s an
all-embracing approach that seeks to create consistency across an entire organisation, aligning communications and departments (IC, HR, T&D and Recruitment). Its effect starts the moment a new employee arrives, until the day they leave.

The ‘golden thread’ approach of LEC™ seeks to address the thorny issues of a lack of consistency, clarity and impact in corporate communications. It works by ensuring companies successfully break down silos, communicate more effectively with their people, build better levels of trust, communicate strategy effectively and, in turn, improve the bottom line.

In practice, our LEC™ approach has helped several notable clients communicate strategy, sales performance, innovation, health & wellbeing, diversity and inclusion, apprenticeship and created a new digital channel in a consistent tone and style. We work with their IC, HR, T&D and Marketing to deliver employee campaigns to help join the dots of their colleague communications.

Communications support – proven channels and cutting edge too…

As well as traditional communications support, such as magazines, events and manager cascades, we’ve utilised the latest technologies – as well as being innovative ourselves – to create the most engaging communications possible.

In film, we’ve embraced 360°, parallax and virtual reality. We’ve built new digital, work-based social communities to tailor messages to our clients’ audience and also to reach their remote employees. We’ve used 3D printing to truly bring messages to life – even printing a 3D nuclear power station!
We’ve also provided in-depth channel reviews and audits to clients seeking to improve their full spectrum of colleague communications.

People power…

Ultimately, an agency is only as good as its people. Talent and commitment, and a shared desire to make a difference is the glue that holds Words&Pictures together, but it’s also why our clients like to work with us. The relationship, understanding and bond we have with our clients help us work in genuine partnership to deliver effective, award-winning communications, together.
