A key challenge for any businesses is minimising risk and managing reputation is perhaps the most difficult element.
Supplier, market and credit risks are all more readily quantifiable and continue to absorb a great deal of management attention.
Companies are sharply increasing boardroom time spent on risk management with almost half of businesses consistently reporting that they devote no resources to measuring reputational risk.
Yet a reputational crisis, which may result from a variety of sources, environmental disasters, boardroom splits, legal rulings etc, can be devastating.
At its simplest, reputation is a collection of perceptions and perspectives, constantly evolving and subject to change from new views and opinions.
Our communications plans enable companies to effectively engage with and positively influence the constant flow of insight into corporate reputation.
We ensure they are grounded in an organisation’s fundamental values, culture and characteristics to underpin the authenticity and authority of our recommended initiatives.
Our approach is informed by the rigorous research of our business analysts, the expert use of our suite of social media tools and the creativity of our media relations and digital specialists.
We cover all reputation matters because we recognise how vital an excellent reputation is to drive our clients’ business outperformance.
Smart thinking is fundamental to everything we do.
We publish ‘Reputation Matters’ reports on key issues, communications techniques, sector trends and developments because we believe that the better our thinking, the more thoughtful our advice to clients.
