Modern Global Trends in Public Relations and Corporate Communication


The increasing number of employees in modern institutions has led to a heightened focus on internal communication processes with them, as they represent the organization to various public groups and speak on its behalf. Unless public relations are of fundamental importance in maintaining an effective communication system, individuals will not represent their institution well. A link is established between the amount of information an individual possesses about the institution they belong to and the level of interest and pride in explaining our goals and policies from time to time, which is achieved through building strong internal communications carried out by the Public Relations department within the organization.
