Ethical Public Relations

Very often, PR professionals, are labelled as a not-so-serious lot who are controlled by the wishes of their employers or clients, things which are not in great taste. Yes, we are hired by organizations for a certain purpose, to be their mouthpiece to the media and for external public.

 

The PR profession becomes a soft target because many PR practitioners are mere implementers or messengers. Many have worked for a company or organization. It is common sense that while representing a company, organization or industry, PR professionals must act professionally and do nothing to dishonor or displease those whom they represent. From loyalty perspective, this is also being ethical. It becomes important to share that ethical decisions are needed almost every day in PR work. Everyday there are things that put PR professionals in a spot.

 

PR professionals are always in an ethical dilemma of sorts. There are ethics related to rules and duties, to right or wrong, about actions. PR professionals must do what is right, regardless of the consequences.
