The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) is a professional body in the United Kingdom for public relations practitioners (PR).
Why is PR important?
Every organisation, no matter how large or small, ultimately depends on its reputation for survival and success. Customers, suppliers, employees, investors, journalists and regulators can have a powerful impact. They all have an opinion about the organisations they come into contact with – whether good or bad, right or wrong. These perceptions will drive their decisions about whether they want to work with, shop with and support these organisations. In today’s competitive market, reputation can be a company’s biggest asset – the thing that makes you stand out from the crowd and gives you a competitive edge. Effective PR can help manage reputation by communicating and building good relationships with all organisation stakeholders.
Becoming a member of the CIPR opens up a huge world of resources and benefits. Up to £700 of free online training webinars will be made available.
