Responsible Corporate Communications – Initiative Publishes First Book

The communications industry is in a crisis that is touching its very foundation: its own credibility. The need for professional communication in business is high, but social trust in strategic communication is at an all-time low. In addition, as the “European Communication Monitor” study 2020 shows, just under one in two communications professionals say they are confronted with moral challenges in their practice and would like to see skills development and further training. The team of our “Responsible Communication” project already saw this need coming in 2018 and wants to actively promote ethos, dialog skills and credibility in the communication industry and thus sustainable, i.e. responsible and convincing corporate communication.

How does responsible and credible corporate communication succeed? How can it be practically implemented in everyday life in the various areas – especially in view of the use of new technologies?

These are the questions that the “Responsible Communication” initiative at the Global Ethic Institute has been addressing for over three years. In order to find practical answers for everyday communication in companies and agencies, leading experts worked together on topics such as responsible crisis and stakeholder communication, sustainable attitude communication, dealing with A.I., responsible design and marketing. In July, their specialist book entitled “Credible Corporate Communication – Impulses for Responsible and Effective Practice” will be published by Springer Verlag.
