“Information Officers play a very important role in every organization. You serve as liaisons between the DepEd and the public. No organization is perfect. We are not a perfect organization. We are vulnerable to crises, that’s why you are there. As Information Officers, who have two very important roles to play. First, PROMOTING OUR ORGANIZATION and Second, PRESERVING OUR ORGANIZATION or crisis management. All stakeholders, internal and external, are just as capable of misunderstanding or misinterpreting information about our organization and it’s your responsibility to minimize the chance of that happening,” said SDS Genis S Murallos.
