It’s back to school so it’s back to Metric Monday!

Our next series holds the mirror up to the comms/PR profession by reflecting on the state of measurement around the world thanks to the PR Week 2017 Global Comms Report released late last year.

A total of 425 senior agencies and in-house comms and marketing pros in seven countries (U.S., Canada, U.K., France, Germany, Sweden, and China inc Hong Kong (but unfortunately excluding Australia), completed the online survey conducted in collaboration with an earned media software provider.
