The study INTERNAL CRISIS COMMUNICATION IN THE TIME OF COVID-19 PANDEMIC outlines:

The study is based on interviews, focus groups and a survey with internal communication managers and a survey with employees.
It reports data about:
- strategies, objectives, content, tools, features, difficulties, informal communication, roles of top and line managers and internal communication managers, and future evolution of internal communication
