To achieve this, there are different alternatives that can generate added value for companies, such as having a public relations firm, also known as a press office. Below, we tell you what it is about and how it adds value to brands and companies. 

What is a public relations (PR) firm? 

A public relations (PR) firm is composed of a team of professionals specialized in corporate communication. This firm is responsible for managing the image and reputation of companies with their different stakeholders, in addition to designing and directing the communication strategy to be implemented. Another key function of the press office, is to transmit the key messages, actions, and strategies of companies to their stakeholders through public opinion, the media, key opinion leaders, influencers, among others.

Success lies in having a crisis manual, contingency plans, and the necessary preparation for different scenarios. This way, a crisis can be managed better without affecting the image of the company or its managers.

What does a press office do?
