CHAPTER ONE

 

 

1.0     INTRODUCTION

Information has to be presented to the public about organizational or industrial products and services.  As a result the use of public relation in business management is a necessity. To enhance business growth, a firm or an industry should ensure proper image and goodwill. An industry or organization that maintains its reputation  before the public is likely to see its goods and or services workers will also seek  to work in such firms, just as investors will seeks to buy its shares.

Rex Harlow of San Francesco USA gave one of  the most comprehensive definitions of public relations.  According to him public relations is a distinctive management function which helps to establish and maintain mutual line of communication, understanding, acceptance and co-operation between an organization and its publics.

There fore, for the fact that no business or organization is an Island, that is, can properly exist without public support, public understanding or interest should be adequate sought for.

According to Ewrneth (1984) “A public exists whenever a group of people is draw together by definite interest in certain areas and has definite opinions upon matters within those areas “The public should be given proper attention, because their opinion may make or mar any business organization.

The public attitude towards on organization is another dimension to understand public relation.

Public relation is the management factions that evaluate public attitude, identifies the policies and procedures of an individual or an organization with the public interest and plans and executes a programme of action to earn public understanding and acceptance.

An attitudinal definition was given by the public relation News of York. Based on the definition, is obvious that  a business cannot exist without the existence of consumers who patronize it.  There fore, need exists for an effective communication and adequate information on the products or service of a company to e carefully, precisely and constantly disseminate to the publics, whose opinion can affect the organization either positively or negatively, depending on the perception by that public this is to ensure consumer orientation. To enhance good business management, a  good public relations department should act according to public interest. As a managerial function public relation practitioner should be vigorously involved in management decision making.

They should be involved in coordinating various departments.  Marketing, personnel, purchasing, engineering, accounting and so on to ensure optimum production and service in the organization.  This ensure that the good image of the firm is maintained among the populace.  Dissemination of information and co-ordination of various department are necessary because every department may not be free to read and search for information in and outside the organization environment.  Source will elevate the corporate image and ensure business growth.
