The Chief Communications Officer (CCO) is a key member of the C-suite and a valued strategic business partner across the organization. Clear, concise and consistent strategic communications are a crucial part of driving business success and results.
Chief Communications Officers ensure clear communication of the organization’s mission, purpose and values, help to define the employer brand, employee engagement and experience. They are valuable partners in times of change and crisis and are crucial for ensuring continuity and alignment of messaging with all key stakeholders and providing valuable leadership and guidance to the C-suite, board and across the organization.
The CCO oversees the organization’s communications strategy, governance, enablement, policies and processes for all communications. Traditionally, these senior communications leaders are responsible for corporate communications, internal communications, executive communications, media and investor relations, issues and crisis management, community relations and philanthropy and even events. CCO duties and responsibilities are expanding as the need for communications is more important than ever – especially during COVID, the increase in remote and hybrid work environments and the demand for smart use of digital and social media strategies and marketing with communications alignment.
