About Andrew Gilleran - Using the right technology to get employees engaged and informed

Andrew Gilleran - 3 core beliefs for internal communications

“Vital to maintaining high-productivity workplaces is organizations’ ability to engage their employees. Gallup’s extensive research shows that employee engagement is strongly connected to business outcomes — such as productivity, profitability, and customer satisfaction — that are essential to an organization’s financial success.”

Andrew Gilleran - Digital Communicator

Hi there

I am Andrew Gilleran and I am a freelance Internal Communications Specialist.


Technology was meant to make internal communications and employee engagement simpler and more effective. It hasn’t. But technology can help or hinder employee communications. I help organisations use the right technology to improve internal communications and boost employee engagement.


I understand clearly how people engage and communicate within organisations. I know the channels to use, how to use them and how to measure them.


In 20 years experience in mulitnational financial services and consultancy with multi-national and Irish companies, I’ve used the right technology in the right ways for:


  • internal communications & employee engagement
  • content management
  • communications strategy
  • project management
  • document management
  • intranet/web development
  • social enterprise networking
  • SharePoint, Yammer and Plain English training
  • User adoption training
  • web analytics

SharePoint (and Yammer) has been the technology I’ve used the most. I know how to squeeze huge value from those platforms for your end users.


Ultimately it is about outcomes. It’s about creating and managing convincing internal communications that get the right outcomes for your organisation and your employees.


Companies and clients I have worked with include:

Aviva Ireland   FBD Insurance
Irish Aviation Authority (IAA)   Intact Software
PRII Logo   Label World
I worked on these brands through advertising agencies and graphic designers    
Aer Lingus   Bank of Ireland
Dairygold   Mount Juliet Golf
Kellogg's   Dialogue
    …and many, many more.



Do you have the time and/or the resources to do what you need to do? 

It could be for a project, a few days a week or to support your existing communications efforts. You know there are not enough hours in the day to achieve all that you want to and all that you need. See the full internal communications solutions here.
