If any doubt exists in your mind that corporate communications impact the worth of your business, simply cast your memory back to Facebook’s infamous valuation plummet of July 2018. In one of the biggest one-day destructions of market value any company has ever suffered, the social media giant lost about $123 billion in shareholder wealth due, in part, to its inability to meet investors’ expectations following some disastrous revelations. Facebook failed to signal that its efforts to tackle fake news and other platform abuse, including the Cambridge Analytica scandal, would slow its revenue and earnings. In July, when Facebook reported second quarter revenue that fell short of expectation and further revealed revenue growth would continue to be sluggish in the coming quarters as the company invested in enhancing privacy and security, these details effectively spooked investors, who quickly dumped their shares. Facebook’s worth and reputation have suffered greatly in the aftermath.
As famously stated by Jeff Bezos, “A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well.” It is crucial that companies keep their customers and investors informed regarding what they’re doing and how they are dealing with problems when difficult situations arise.
Corporate communications, known in times past as public relations, are a key component of any business strategy. Any breakdowns in corporate communications have the potential to impact an enterprise’s operations, negatively affect public perception, destroy a company’s reputation and erode investor confidence. Without question, if a company pays too little attention to sending out the right message, they are putting their entire organization at risk.
