Organizations Should Have Official Policy for Communication

Please critique the article attached. How would one may or may not apply the concept in the article to their future job environment? Please provide summary of the article also.

Few organizations have written communication policies and even fewer share those policies broadly within or beyond the organization. But that doesn't negate the need for such an important document. Beyond the media, companies and organizations also need to consider their other audiences who expect to hear official positions and responses, or at various business junctures or when news breaks. So whether they're called media relations, disclosure, public relations or public information policies, there are common elements of communication policies that can help guide you and your leadership to the development of a formal, written and agreed-upon procedure for communicating both internally and externally. Perhaps the simplest, most concise philosophy statement comes from the Gloucestershire Partnership NHS Trust in England: "The policy establishes the basis of the desired relationship with the local, regional and national media, one that is open, effective and positive."
