Insecurity on the rise amongst communicators
Touching on the same theme as my last post, I was interested to read about some research carried out recently by Communicators in Business (CiB) which shows that internal communicators are feeling increasingly insecure about their jobs.
The poll, which ran on the CiB web site for two months, attracted 213 responses. Of those 28 people (13%) had actually lost their jobs. A further 39 (18%) said that they felt “very insecure” and 45 (21%) said they were “quite insecure” in their current roles.
Okay, so it’s not a large scale or overly scientific piece of research and there are no big surprises in there, but it does provide a useful insight into the state of our profession right now.
