Description

Why should and how can organisations manage their reputations? All organisations, the executives who direct them, the employees who create value and their stakeholders who influence them, all interact and can impact corporate reputation.

In a 24/7 media environment, where even a tweet can shape impressions, the importance of reputation management has never been higher. Every single move, decision taken and each isolated event that involves a company or public figure, is scrutinised, documented and publicised globally, compounding the task of reputation managers. Just ask BP, Toyota or Tiger Woods.

Features

Chapter objectives - each chapter opens with a brief commentary on the broad issues that will be addressed to help signal the primary topics that are covered in the chapter and so guide the learning experience.

Key terms – margin notes help readers to locate relevant material quickly and highlight key issues.

ViewPoints – examples serve to demonstrate how a particular aspect of corporate reputation has been used by an organisation in a particular context. They feature companies such as Ryanair, MTV, Google, Disney and Médecins Sans Frontières. 

Summaries and mini cases- a series of review and discussion questions encourage you to test your own understanding of the content of each chapter.

Online resources- students have access to further materials including short video presentations by the authors explaining the main concepts outlined by each chapter, minicases, an online glossary and annotated weblinks on the accompanying website.
