Functions of Public Relations
Please help me with the following:
Prepare a 1,050-1,400-word paper in which you explain the organizational and societal functions of PR. You must use at least one credible, external source (e.g. professional organization, textbook, journal articles, etc). Select an organization with which you are familiar, and identify an issue within that organization that would have both organizational and societal implications. For that organization, explain how you would address both the organizational and societal audiences.
The organization I have picked is Wal-Mart. Please use your own words, do not copy and paste. Thank You in advance for your help.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 3, 2020, 9:00 pm ad1c9bdddf
