CCO and Its New Role in Organizations: Improve Reputation and Ensure Sustainability

Companies are no longer isolated from the outer world. They depend on the social context and the environment. However, ironically, their culture, identity and internal climate also contribute to business success. Harmonizing these two dimensions, making them coherent and meaningful is a vital task for companies today.

Thus organizations need professionals with profiles and competencies that address both dimensions. By doing this they should meet the expectations of their internal stakeholders, and at the same time, understand and respond to the demands of their external stakeholders. The figure of a Chief Communications Officer (CCO) is a mediator between the two worlds, and its task is to link and align the internal world with the external world of the organizations.
