The origin and role of CEM

change through communication

At clusterfck, we introduced CEM as the cornerstone of our transformation consulting. Placing employees at the heart of change, we empower organisations to revolutionize internal communication through cross-functional expertise and customer-centric (or rather: employee-centric) strategies borrowed from contemporary marketing.

Companies encounter numerous challenges, especially during periods of change and transformation. These transformation struggles manifest in the form of inefficient internal communication processes and reduced employee engagement. The resulting consequences are profound: a lack of buy-in and trust from employees.


In the long term, this can become a substantial obstacle, hindering the seamless progression of transformation initiatives and, in severe cases, leading to their erosion or complete failure. Addressing these challenges is imperative for organizations aiming to achieve successful and enduring change.

And this is where CEM comes into play. A new approach to effective transformation and change management that strategically leverages modern marketing techniques to inform, engage, and delight employees, turning them into internal change ambassadors. CEM recognizes that internal communication is vital for change management, relying on clear, transparent, and targeted messaging.
