The In-house Benchmarking Report is an annual publication that reveals data from senior PR and communications professionals from the private, public and third sectors. The results provide crucial information for directors and managers on subjects such as social media policy; the biggest issues facing PR and communications teams; staff roles and responsibilities; and salary figures.
