Eight PR Strategic Uses Of PR Secondment (2023)

In today's competitive hiring landscape, attracting and retaining top PR talent has never been more challenging.

The ongoing struggle to source skilled professionals threatens to stifle organizations' communications efforts.

However, there is an alternative approach that can help mitigate these talent risks - the strategic use of secondments.

By embedding experienced practitioners from partner firms on a temporary basis, companies can access a ready pool of dedicated support to elevate projects, without the fatigue of endless recruiting.

Prudent and Insightful Solution

In fact, secondments may be one of the most prudent and insightful ways to not just plug skills gaps, but nurture the ongoing relationships that are so vital to the PR profession.

With a secondment model, employers obtain the expertise and perspective of senior advisors customized to meet their unique needs - all while sparing themselves the uncertainty of the open market.

Earlier this month we launched the Eight PR Secondment Initiative to help law and tech firms alleviate pressures and gain strategic insights without the need for a full time hire.

The Initiative offers firms an opportunity to have a dedicated PR professional embedded within their team on a flexible basis, providing vital counsel and support for their communications needs.
