Date: 3 – 7 October 2021 (Period of the interactive e-learning sessions)
Training institution: The Muhanna Foundation
Training venue: E-learning Training Platform
Training course topic: ISSA Guidelines on Communication by Social Security Administrations
This course provides participants with insights into how communication can support the core mandate of their institution. Good communication coupled with modern web and mobile-based technologies improves service quality while reducing administrative costs. It does so by providing support to the various business lines of the institution, by turning specialized jargon into standardized messages that are easier to understand by the public and by providing advice on how and to whom they should be conveyed. It reduces the need to respond to individual enquiries by facilitating self-serve approaches, which in turn reduces workload for frontline staff. Communication plays a corporate role in conveying the overall image of the institution and its engagement toward the citizenry. Internally, communication fosters the development of a common culture and spirit – a shared understanding – of the institution’s mission, values and commitment to service excellence.
