  • Culture as Crisis Communication: Tokyo Electric Power Company and the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Disaster

    Japan's worst nuclear disaster occurred in 2011; yet, its transboundary effects continue to reverberate across the globe, particularly as new, more troublesome revelations become public in Japan. At the center of the whirlwind of revelations are the culture and communication practices of Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which operates the world's largest nuclear power plant. TEPCO's management's cultural expectations of employee loyalty and of harmony with stakeholders have resulted in public ire. This chapter presents a culture‐based crisis‐communication plan that TEPCO could have launched within seconds of learning of the human and environmental destruction, particularly those in the country's worst‐hit prefectures. The case study attempts to uncover the reasons for TEPCO's failure to fulfill Milton Freedman's classic view of corporate responsibility. It shows that internal mechanisms that maintain social order can quickly fail during crisis situations when time demands are intense and malleable, and continuous actions are required.

  • Going Nuts Over Nuts: The Korean Air Ramp Return Crisis

    One of the key factors that has contributed to the development of the South Korean economy is the role of the Chaebols, or large business conglomerates, unique to its culture. Due to this special treatment, some of the young generation of these families take such privileges within their corporations for granted. On December 5, 2014, the Korean Air Flight 86 departing from John F. Kennedy International Airport, returned to the gate and ejected a senior flight attendant from the plane. Cho Hyun‐ah, a Korean Air Executive Vice President on board was not happy with the way the Hawaiin nut snack was served and ordered the captain to move back to ramp and eject the senior flight attendant. This Korean Air "nut rage" case extends beyond a simple incident, but rather an explosion of widely dispersed negative perception of the Chaebols within the South Korean society and against the excessive behaviors of the owner family.

  • Cultural Impediment or Reflection of Global Phenomenon: State of Social Media Crisis Preparedness in Singapore

    Singapore has achieved fame as a hub of commerce, knowledge, and research and development in a fiercely competitive global environment. If there is an Achilles heel in Singapore's progress in this new economy, it would be its lack of crisis preparedness, particularly social media crisis (SMC) preparedness. Due to its lack of natural resources, and driven by the need to survive and progress in a fiercely competitive global environment, pragmatism has influenced the way Singapore operates, characterized by utilization of limited human resources to increase efficiency and profitability. As Singapore is a meritocratic society, the importance of diligence has been socialized from a young age as they ascribe to the fear of stagnation. This chapter argues that for all its much‐lauded competences, SMC preparedness among organizations in Singapore remains inadequate. In all, Singaporean organizations were very slow to take up using social media as a tool for customer relations and brand building.

  • “Nothing Will Ever Be the Same”: The Borusan Case and the Socio‐Cultural Dynamics of Crisis in Turkey

    The 2011 Borusan crisis in Turkey revealed the complex relations between business, culture, politics, and religious sensitivities. The company withdrew sponsorship for a woman race car driver, citing budget cuts as the reason. However, it was alleged that the real reason was because the woman wore a headscarf which did not sit well with the company's policy of political and religious neutrality. This chapter discusses the competing cultural identities in Turkey. It verifies the place of Islam (religion) in the politics and culture, as well as evaluates the important role that sociocultural factors can play in business success. The chapter also analyses corporate philanthropy/social responsibility in times of crisis. Turkish crisis communication practices were examined by the authors via the media coverage of crisis events between 2006 and 2014. Borusan authorities highlighted three priority stakeholders as the employees, the media, and the general public. The main lesson is the importance of learning from sociocultural mistakes.

  • Planning for Crisis Communication Across Cultural and Transboundary Contexts

    In crisis situations, things can be more chaotic than the crisis handlers would like, and usually implementing any plan at all, is challenging. This chapter seeks to provide some guidelines on how to plan for communication on that crisis day that is bound to come. Despite the focus on culture and transboundary concerns, certain commonalities can be found among crises across all settings that allow for the provision of broad guidelines in planning and preparation. The chapter recognizes what crisis is, and provides the definition of crisis. It then presents the goal and objectives of a crisis communication plan (CCP). The chapter shows that effective crisis communication encompasses three phases—before, during, and after the crisis. It determines the importance of examining crisis communication from the three‐phase perspective, and also provides guidelines for future crisis planning.

  • Gone with the Mud: Learning from the Niterói Disaster in Brazil

    Natural disasters, landslides, and flooding are recurrent in South and Central American countries. A dark cloud hangs over Brazil as a result of political corruption scandals that have swept up former and current presidents and financial corruption at Petrobras, which has now ensnared some of the nation's top business leaders and legislators. These criticisms coupled with the handling of the Niteroi disaster of 2010, highlight how culture and politics negatively influence Brazil's response to crisis. Brazilian political culture, much like its business culture, is considered paternalistic—a superior/subordinate relationship, in which the superior guides and protects and the subordinate is loyal and respectful. The concept of Jeitinho is very attractive to political candidates because they know that these "helpers" in such positions will have many "followers" just because of the vast dispensation of political favors. Crisis response must be quick and effective. Niteroi mayor's response to the crisis was neither fast nor effective.
