disturbing is doing the job you were not hired to do as if it was the job you
- What are some practical examples of public relations ethics you have
seen done well and poorly?
poor thing I have had happen to me is I have been given false information over
the phone about items that I was interested in purchasing. There have also been
a few good ethnic actions I have witness throughout a few companies I have
visited, one specifically being Nike. Nike is always helpful and honest about
what a product will and will not do for me.
- What did you gather from your
codes of ethics research that might best apply to your own standards of
throw dirt on the competing party, stores, athletic teams, actors ect do this
all the time, but if you really want to win or come off as the better company
with the best judgment you want competition on your side. I have seen others
run public relations based off of finding the dirt on their comp to weed out
the other firms or news stations. This is something hat I would not do in my
own standard conduct.
