A world dramatically changed calls for an altogether new approach to communications.

Your communications programs should focus on four major thematic shifts:

Adjust news releases to align with these narratives. Refocus your blogs and overall content strategy. Refresh your website copy. Rework executive speeches. Revise corporate employee videos.

Comprehensively change your communications plan. World events dictate you must for your business to be sensitive to peoples’ new needs and concerns, both within and outside your company.

Make known how your company helps solve the pandemic’s problems, such as opening corporate office facilities for coronavirus testing or enabling your employees to take time off from work to serve people at food banks.
