As business assets, we as communication professionals must engage key competencies to serve as the “voice of the organization,” to use resources wisely and to measure our contribution to the organization’s viability and sustainability. What are these competencies, resources and metrics, and how do we recognize the opportunity to contribute?
Mary Hills, ABC, IABC Fellow, explains what it takes to become a necessary business asset in your profession. In today’s organizations, she says, the communication professional has become a necessary asset, as companies are constantly clarifying the mission of the business in a rapidly shifting marketplace.
“I think the concept of how do you provide value in an organization was always there, but calling it a business asset, I think, is a really good phrase to put it in context of where the organizational communication function is,” Hills shares in an interview with CW’s Associate Editor, Khyla Flores.
