In the intense, dynamic environment of the public relations (PR) industry, it is easy for many agencies to under-invest in people, resulting in higher staff turnover and poor quality of work. It is a simple equation that eventually impacts the business on a larger scale. Lesser profits means less investment in people, and the vicious cycle repeats.
