CRISIS COMMUNICATION

WHAT IS CRISIS COMMUNICATIONS?

Crisis communications refers to the way in which organisations communicate with stakeholders during a crisis situation. Crisis situations can include natural disasters, accidents, financial problems, and other events that threaten the reputation, stability, or safety of an organisation.

FIRST STEPS FOR COMMUNICATING IN A CRISIS

When a crisis strikes, effective communication is critical for minimising the negative impacts and protecting the reputation of an organisation. However, the fast-paced nature of a crisis situation can make it difficult to know where to start when it comes to communicating with stakeholders. 

WHAT IS A CRISIS COMMUNICATIONS HOLDING STATEMENT?

A crisis communications holding statement is a short, concise statement that is issued by a company or organisation during a crisis situation to acknowledge the crisis and provide a limited amount of information while more detailed information is being gathered.
