#StateofPR '17 to explore post-Brexit PR

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has today launched the 2016/17 State of the Profession survey - the industry's most comprehensive investigation of PR practice, in partnership with Survation.

Following Britain’s vote to leave the European Union in June, this year's #StateofPR survey will examine the extent to which public relations is prepared for business in the post-Brexit era.

The survey aims to uncover the key trends and challenges defining modern PR practice. Data from the survey will be used to inform industry debate and CIPR policy on issues including the gender pay gap, PR salaries, skills, recruitment trends and more.

From today, CIPR members and those subscribed to the CIPR non-member mailing list will receive an email from CIPR President Rob Brown FCIPR inviting them to share their views.

Rob Brown FCIPR, CIPR President, Managing Partner of Rule 5
The current political and economic climate makes it more important than ever for us to take an accurate reading of the PR industry's health. We need know how we're doing in order to understand how we can progress in 2017 and beyond.

That's why I'm urging everyone in public relations - members and non-members - to help us prepare for the future by completing the survey and sharing opinion on the big issues impacting our profession today.
Rob Brown FCIPR, CIPR President, Managing Partner of Rule 5

Further information on the research and a survey link for those not subscribed to the CIPR's mailing lists can be found on the CIPR website.
