“Corporate communication” is primarily a mechanism to develop and manage a set of relationships with the public and the stakeholders who could impact the overall performances of the organisation. These relationships must be viewed in a long-term strategic manner. Thus, according to the above definition, corporate communication is used to build the image among its audiences to enhance its overall performances. It goes beyond the traditional method of communication and harnesses the potential of the print, audio-visual and digital media for the company’s reputation. It uses advertising, public relations, community relations, corporate literature, exhibitions, event management, research, sponsorship management, traditional media and IMC (integrated marketing communication) to place organization, products, and services in the marketplace.

 Digitalisation is empowering end users and increasing competition to share the voice and share of market. There has been a rapid shift in societal expectations around access to information and transparency—and also a desire for more two-way dialogue and an opportunity to input ideas. Digital platforms, as a means of stakeholder engagement, feature largely in the communications toolbox. Given the disintermediation of news distribution, companies need to be innovating but also get more comfortable with their lack of overt “control” over content. The website is now, more than ever, a channel that significantly influences perceptions of a company, but it must also be consistent with the real-world experience of the brand.

The Corporate communications departments have long been the fifth wheel. However, with the evolution of the industry over the past few years – from shrinking newsrooms to new marketing software and social media networks – CCOs and CMOs are finally getting a real seat at the C-suite table, as leadership understands now more than ever the direct impact both marketing and PR can have on all aspects of the business. Nonetheless, with greater understanding comes more pressure to deliver. Today’s communications roles now span brand awareness and brand equity as well as sales growth – all of which are deemed successful or not successful – through quantitative measurements.

With these newly defined roles and greater responsibility, traditional corporate communications teams are restructuring and rethinking how to effectively market their products. To succeed, they must be more focused on delivering multimedia content, creating integrated campaigns and consistently demonstrating ROI.
