Book Description

This book examines the evolution of corporate communication in the recent past in the context of the rapidly changing contemporary business environment in India.

Using several case studies, it illustrates the growing need for small and large businesses to recognize and form a direct connection with their stakeholders and further explains the effective ways through which specific business requirements are realised by communication managers. The book explores the greater dependency and function of multiple media strategies and their challenges. It also offers various theoretical and practical insights into the successful integration of diverse communication and marketing strategies like employee communication; investor relations; corporate social responsibility and philanthropy; branding; crisis management; and corporate ethics and governance among others.

Lucid and comprehensive, this book will be an essential read for students and scholars of corporate communications, business management, media and communication studies, public relation and marketing as well as communication and marketing practitioners.
