What is crisis communications

Crisis communications is the process of rapidly responding to an event that could harm you, your brand, or your company’s reputation.

The goal of any crisis communications campaign is to avert and minimise harm, as well as resolve the crisis as quickly as possible.

It usually involves telling important stakeholders, such as business partners or customers, how you plan to quickly correct or learn from a crisis situation. It may also involve correcting misinformation.

Why is crisis communications important?

According to academic research, the longer a company takes to react to a crisis situation, the more severe its impact on the business’ reputation, profits, and share price.

Stakeholders are increasingly making decisions based on the reputations of individuals and companies, so ensuring your reputation is protected is good business sense.

What is the role of PR in crisis management?

In the case of a crisis, PR methods are used to get the company or individual’s perspective out to important stakeholders quickly, including customers, partners, and the media.

If the response is effective, this will often stop the crisis from deepening further, help the company safeguard its reputation, and provide a foundation for starting to rebuild relationships.

What is considered a crisis?

A communications crisis is any situation where the publication of information or news will hurt a company’s reputation or relationships with important stakeholders.

A crisis may concern employment, financial results, sustainability, diversity, supply chain, gender, governance, or accounting issues.

How much does crisis communications cost?

Crisis communications is charged at a premium compared with conventional PR because crises are intense, fast-moving, and demand around-the-clock support.

At Transmission Private, we price our services on a completely transparent basis, which is based on the length of time a project takes as well as the experience of the team member engaged.

In crisis situations, the day rate for our team members varies between £700 to £5,000, and more information can be found in our Price Guidelines.
