Three ways organizations use HQ

Hundreds of teams use our software to plan, compose, align, and measure their internal communications.

"Our HQ update is a chance for management to go on the record... It’s a way to communicate efficiently, to let people digest it asynchronously, and to measure whether it's getting traction." Mike Lackman, CEO, Trade Coffee

All-staff and exec communication

Clear, effective communication is critical for on-site, hybrid, and remote teams to stay aligned. Axios HQ makes writing internal communications easy — so you can boost trust and engagement across your all-staff and executive audiences.

"As our Social Impact work continues to grow, we recognized smart communications would be crucial... Axios HQ provides a streamlined platform to communicate with our employees around the world, and the ability to easily customize our messaging for regional audiences." Richard Socarides, Chief Communications Officer, GLG

Department and regional news

As all-staff updates trickle down, each region or department needs unique insight to carry a strategy or goal forward — and see their role and impact in it. Axios HQ helps teams or regions understand “What’s new” and “Why it matters” to them.

How GLG rallies a global workforce
"It's been really helpful in community and trust building. In school communications, no one ever tells you, ‘Oh, I loved your communication,’ so it was kind of a shock for us to hear, ‘Thank you.’ Every week, more and more people email us." Media Relations Manager, AISD

Member and client updates

Axios HQ makes it easy to build community or engage clients with clear, conversational updates. A few ways organizations use it today:

  • Cadenced client or member updates

  • Updates on volunteer and other events

  • Philanthropy and donor impact stories

What is Smart Brevity?

Smart Brevity is a communications formula built by journalists — then perfected inside of hundreds of organizations — to help professionals prioritize essential information, explain its impact on readers, and deliver both in a concise and visual format. 

  • Most Smart Brevity communications are 40-50% shorter than typical updates, with all the same vital details preserved. 

It works because it's built on brain science. We spent years digging into data and changing reader behaviors to learn what keeps folks engaged.
