Book Description

Reputation Management is an established how-to guide for students and professionals, as well as CEOs and other business leaders. This fourth edition, fully updated throughout and featuring notable contributions from some of the world’s leaders in public relations, corporate communication, business and academia, reflects leading-edge thought, practice and scholarship.

It rests on the premise that reputation can be measured, monitored, and managed. Organized by corporate communication units including media relations, crisis communication, organizational communication, government relations, and investor relations, the book provides a field-tested guide to corporate reputation problems such as leaked memos, unfair treatment by the press, as well as ways to optimize the reputation asset. The book focuses on practical solutions and is embroidered by ethics. Each chapter is fleshed out with the real-world experience cited by the authors and contributions from 36 leaders in the field, including The Arthur W. Page Society, the International Communications Consultancy Organization, the PR Council, CVS Health, Edelman and Ketchum. Key updates to the fourth edition include social media management techniques for the quickly evolving age of digital media, and perspectives on reputation management in an era of globalization.

This book was the first book on reputation management and, now in its fourth edition, is still a must have resource for students taking classes in Public Relations Management, Corporate Communication, and Communication Management, as well as CEOs, business leaders, and professionals working in these areas.
