Over 300 organizations use our software to write and send vital updates.
Clear, effective communication is critical for on-site, hybrid, and remote teams to stay aligned. Axios HQ makes writing relevant updates easy — so you can boost trust and engagement across your all-staff and executive audiences.
A few ways organizations use HQ for internal comms:
"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
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,” “Why it matters” to them.
A few ways leaders use HQ for team-level comms:
"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
Strong communication is key to strong relationships — it builds trust and helps you align on needs, goals, and priorities. Axios HQ makes it easier to build community or engage clients with clear, conversational updates.
A few ways organizations use HQ for community comms:
"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."
— Cristina Nguyen, Media Relations Manager, AISD
