Worldcom Public Relations Group is a partnership of global public relations firms. We are the world’s leading partnership of independently owned public relations counseling firms with more offices in more cities and countries than any multinational firm. Established in 1988, Worldcom was formed so that the strongest, most capable independent public relations firms could serve national, international and multi-national clients while retaining the flexibility and client-service focus inherent in independent agencies. Through Worldcom, clients have on-demand access to in-depth communications expertise from professional public relations specialists who understand the language, culture and customs of the geographic arenas in which they operate. Our top public relations firms focus on nine areas of public relations including Crisis Management and Issues Management, Business to Business, Health Care, Investor Relations, Public Affairs, Sustainability, Technology and Travel and Tourism. Worldcom is governed by an elected board of directors and three regional boards, with support by a Chief Operating Officer.
Why Worldcom Public Relations Group?
Businesses in today’s competitive marketplace realize that their plans to succeed dictate functioning in a global environment. Yet moving into new markets often poses unexpected problems. Such dilemmas can range from overcoming cultural differences or knowing governmental regulations to reaching target markets. When you need market intelligence, cultural sensitivity, and programs that work in all your markets, you need a top public relations firm and Worldcom is that invaluable source.
Worldcom’s partnership of International public relations agencies gives you local intelligence and execution, even when local is defined as halfway around the world. Our global public relations partner firms are staffed with nationals and not someone merely posted abroad for a specified period of time. This means they are opinion leaders in the public relations profession and in their communities. If your business is expanding beyond its traditional geographic boundaries, Worldcom is able to customize its public relations services to identify and meet your objectives. With your local Worldcom partner firm in the lead, an account team tailored to your program’s geographic needs, from Bombay to Winnipeg, can be formed to service your account.
Worldcom Public Relations Group Quality
Worldcom is the only international public relations partnership that requires firms to meet stringent management standards for business planning, financial systems, campaign evaluation, client satisfaction, service delivery, consistency of processes, training and development of staff, and firm marketing. Each firm undergoes a peer assessment of its management standards every three years and must meet the standards to remain a Worldcom partner. Moreover, our partners believe strongly in accountability and sign an agreement to fulfill specific quality requirements. We have proprietary processes and defined standards for firms working together for clients on assignments to help ensure the very best effort is expended on the clients’ behalf.
We believe we have a network of the best public relations companies worldwide. Our other programs that set the Worldcom partnership apart include:
- Worldcom University — an ongoing staff training program of free webinars covering the latest trends and hottest topics of interest to partners
- Relationship Branding — a proprietary client branding process
- Nine active areas of public relations — a place where partners share knowledge and best practices, and work together to develop strong client programs: consumer, technology, public affairs, crisis and issues management, health care, business to business, sustainability, investor relations, and travel & tourism
Worldcom partners occupy leadership positions in the world’s leading public relations professional organizations such as the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), Council of Public Relations firms, International PR Association (IPRA), Canadian Public Relations Society, German PR Association (DPRA) C.E.R.P., International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), and others.
Worldcom’s hallmark of quality has been recognized by our peers in the honors and awards they have bestowed on our partner-initiated programs around the world. But the most important reward is that our programs meet our client’s goals and produce effective public relations services.
