In a world where media travels faster and across more platforms than ever before, communications professionals need to be able to play many different roles for their teams. However, no matter how adept you are at your job, someone working in the comms department needs people around them to help support their role and activities.
By having clearly defined support systems and roles in place, an organization can help its communications department flourish.
The organized HR expert
If you’re trying to get a message out about the initiatives your company is undertaking to the employee base, you’re going to want a meticulous and highly organized person in the human resources department to relay what that message might entail. This is especially true when the news coming through might have to do with company finances or benefits to employees.
For example, let’s say a company is planning on rolling out a new health insurance plan with better benefits for the employee base. Sounds great, right? Well, on the surface, yes, but the communications department still needs to work hand-in-hand with human resources to ensure the messaging is correct.
