Sarabdeep “Sarab” Kochhar, the IPR's new Director of Research

IPR_Highlights_2013We often mention The Institute for Public Relations (IPR) in The Measurement Standard, and for good reason; we report on and encourage the sort of strategic, data-informed PR efforts that the IPR promotes. The IPR, an independent non-profit foundation, describes itself as, “dedicated to the science beneath the art of public relations.” It organizes conferences, sponsors research and awards, partners with universities and trade groups, and in numerous ways provides, “…timely insights and applied intelligence that professionals can put to immediate use.” Readers of The Measurement Standard will recall many references to the IPR's active and influencial Measurement Commission, and especially its tremendous recent progress in developing measurement standards. Here are a couple recent IPR updates…

  • The IPR has just produced some canny PR for itself in the form of a 2013 Highlights summary infographic. That's part of it up there on the right. This 2-page pdf provides links to papers, speeches, awards and reference material all produced by the IPR over the past year.
  • Just a couple weeks ago the IPR hired its first Director of Research, Sarabdeep “Sarab” Kochhar, who will lead its research programs, serve as chief strategist and counselor to the Board of Trustees, and be the primary IPR spokesperson on research.

Congrats and “Thank You!” to the IPR for its progress and tremendous impact on the quality and practice of public relations. — Bill Paarlberg, Editor  (Note: The author of this post writes an occasional compensated article for the IPR.)
