Relations are a core piece of any practicing business or any functioning group for that matter. Having healthy relations is what makes groups flourish and thrive. In one aspect or another, certain types of relations are bigger than others. Public relations can be broken down further by looking at three types: employee, government, and community relations. These three help to gain a better understanding into the workings of business and government.
Each of these practices has a responsibility to its respectful audience to be clear, informative, and helpful. Employee relations breaks down what is necessary for employers in a workspace. A company should remain try to remain transparent as possible with their employees to earn their trust and respect. When employees feel safe and trustworthy of the brand they represent, it reflects their work habits. It is also the employer’s responsibility to create a healthy and hospitable work environment.
Government relations has its duty to the people over which it governs. Much of the same about employee relations can be said about government relations. There is an overbearing distrust between most publics and their governing officials due to actions of the past. It is government relations responsibility to let the people know what is going on and how it will affect them.
Community relations is the responsibility the general public has toward each other. This principle deals more with accepting those around us despite possible differences and taking it upon ourselves to form a better community. Businesses are player in community relations as well as they can step in and also work to make it better. When a business takes initiative, it shows the community that they are invested in those who keep the business running. It is an easy way to create goodwill for your name and show the public that you care.
