LAST CALL: Morale boosting and media relations served a la cart at GCI Group Atlanta
Kudos to GCI Group's Atlanta office, which managed to turn some bad news into golden coverage. The PR firm's hometown newspaper, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, came to GCI for a story about how local firms were coping with downsizing and keeping up morale among their office's overworked survivors. Cue GCI president Ken Willis and the snack cart he wheels around the office each Friday as a morale booster. The paper's Sunday, October 20 business pages were dominated by a picture of a beaming Willis chatting with AAE Alison Gallaher as he made his rounds with the cart.
