Canva for Internal Communications teams: Meet your new Work Kit

Designed with Internal Communications teams in mind, our HR Work Kit includes a curated collection of learning resources, editable templates, and powerful tools to help every Internal Communications team do their best work.


The past few years have been revolutionary for workplaces. From the rapid influx of artificial intelligence(opens in a new tab or window) to the reimagined world of hybrid work(opens in a new tab or window) and the emergence of the visual economy(opens in a new tab or window), the way we work has changed dramatically. As a result, visual communication has become an essential part of every professional’s toolkit – even in roles that aren’t traditionally design-focused.

As the world of work changes, Internal Communications teams have been tasked with engaging and connecting employees with a company's mission, vision and goals in an engaging and easily digestible way. Amidst the information and technology overload created by hybrid work, Internal Communication teams increasingly need to deliver content that cuts through the noise and resonates with employees.

Producing punchy, visual, and impactful communications has become critical for driving engagement and alignment in an era of shrinking attention spans(opens in a new tab or window) and workplace app sprawl(opens in a new tab or window). However, truly effective communication runs deeper than look and feel – which is exactly why we’re excited to be rolling out our latest workplace solution: Canva Work Kits.

Designed with Internal Communications teams in mind, our HR Work Kit(opens in a new tab or window) includes a curated collection of learning resources, editable templates, and powerful tools to help every Internal Communications team do their best work. Let’s take a look inside.

Your new home for internal communications

In our 2023 Visual Economy Report(opens in a new tab or window), 89% of global business leaders told us communicating visually helps to articulate ideas better – a table stakes objective when it comes to internal communications. However, internal communications teams are often lean, and with similarly thinly stretched internal design teams, content demands are at an all-time premium. For today’s internal communications teams, finding powerful ways to streamline workflows and supercharge productivity is vital.

The HR Work Kit(opens in a new tab or window) was developed based on how Canva’s own Internal Communications and People Teams use Canva to collaborate, boost productivity, and create engaging content for our team of 4,500 people around the world. Within the Work Kit, you’ll discover a bespoke range of ready-made, editable templates that cover practically the full spectrum of collateral internal communications teams are tasked with creating, from communication guides to company-wide town hall presentations, onboarding guides, and playbooks.
