Change is a continuous process in the business world which requires preparation and a vision to truly be successful. Global communications has fallen into an economic hardship over the past three years. During these years, Global Communications stock has depreciated by 50%. Now, a plan has been devised to increase profitability, improve employee morale, help maintain a competitive advantage, increase technical support and manage bad PR press. All these steps will allow Global Communications to truly become a Global Resource.
