CIPR launch new #PRPostPandemic sector survey

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has launched a new sector survey to explore how working life has changed for PR practitioners, their organisations, and the wider profession over the past year since the start of the pandemic.

The #PRPostPandemic survey replaces the CIPR's annual State of the Profession survey for this year only and is designed to gather industry-leading data while seeking to capture practitioner views on the future of the profession. The short survey seeks to gather insight from those working within the profession as well as those who no longer work in PR, whether as a result of the pandemic or otherwise. It will be supported by qualitative research through in-depth practitioner interviews on their experiences.

This survey looks as much to the future as it does to the impact of the experiences and challenges over the last year. The increased recognition in the value of public relations, experienced as a result of the pandemic, has been welcome and this survey will help us understand what that recognition has meant in terms of who we are, what we do, and how we are placed to adapt to a changing economy.

This can only happen with your support. Please take 5 minutes to share your thoughts - whether you are a CIPR member or not – and help us tell this story.

Have your say. Whether you're a CIPR member or not, on your mobile, tablet or desktop, the survey will take around 5 minutes to complete. Respondents can enter a prize draw to win a £100 Amazon gift card upon completion. Complete the survey here.
