“Halkla ilişkiler, kuruluş amacı ve türü ne olursa olsun her organizasyonun tüm paydaşlarıyla iletişiminin stratejik olarak yönetilmesi için gerekli bir yönetim fonksiyonudur.Güncel iç görü ve algı üzerine çalışırken bu unsurların gelecekte nasıl şekilleneceği üzerine de yoğunlaşarak yol haritasını belirler. Bu yönüyle halkla ilişkiler şimdiki zamanın ötesinde yaratılmak istenen etkileri de yönetir ve geleceğe değer katar.”
A new article by Basak Ucanok Tan, Ph.D. (Department of Communication Management) titled “Understanding the Polarity between Work Alienation and the Importance of Work: Evidence from Turkey” is published in the Middle East Journal of Management:
“The main aim of this paper is to investigate the conceptual and empirical grounds work alienation and work centrality differentiate from one another. The concern that these two variables may lie on different axes of the same concept is tackled in relation to work values. In this respect, the effects of work values (intrinsic vs. extrinsic work values) on both work alienation and work centrality have been examined (…)”
The research article titled “The Effects of Values, Work Centrality, and Organizational Commitment on Organizational Citizenship Behaviors: Evidence from Turkish SMEs” authored by Basak Ucanok (Assistant Professor of the Department of Communication Manangement) and Serdar Karabati (Assistant Professor of the Department of Business Administration) is published in the Spring issue of Human Resource Development Quarterly.
The abstract of the study is as follows:
“Organizational citizenship behaviors (OCBs) are voluntary contributions of employees not explicitly recognized by the formal reward system and are ultimately critical for sustaining organizational effectiveness (Organ, 1988). The current study aims to investigate the effects of values, work centrality, and organizational commitment on organizational citizenship behaviors in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Turkey. It is predicted that work centrality, and affective and normative commitment will increase OCBs along with those values that correspond to OCBs in terms of content. A cross-sectional survey was employed with a convenience sample of 277 SME employees. Data were collected in the midst of the 2008 global financial crisis, which allowed for elaboration on the dynamics of OCBs under difficult periods. The analyses revealed that affective commitment and normative commitment were strong predictors of OCBs. Sportsmanship dimension of citizenship was found to be a function of conservation values, work centrality, and both affective and normative commitment. Findings and suggestions for future research are discussed in light of recent OCB literature and a general HRD perspective.”

Erkan Saka, Assistant Professor of the School of Communication, attended as a speaker to the Congress track on the Open Access and Digital Resources of the conference meeting, Sleepwalking in a control society: Committee on Free Access to Information and Freedom of Expression (FAIFE), organized in Helsinki.
In his 15 minute speech on the new media control in Europe, Saka classified major problems related to Internet regulation in Turkey in four categories: a) politicized and arbitrary regulative patterns due to a centralized state commanded internet regulation, b) arbitrary range of crimes to ban websites, c) arbitration on the implementation of Internet use-related laws, d) lack of understanding on the nature of web 2.0 sites.
