Building trust is the key to continuity when a crisis takes you by surprise. Reputational risks have become an increasingly critical type of confidence risk.
We help our clients around the clock in the midst of a crisis, but we also identify trust risks in a changing business environment and take the proper steps to minimise these risks.
Proper situational and stakeholder analyses are crucial for strategic foresight in the early moments of a crisis. The situational analysis identifies the moral core of the crisis and decides on crisis management and communication tactics – and often takes the first steps within minutes. The core can also shift in the middle of a crisis. In the most unexpected situations, we are a damn fast and sharp partner, helping our clients 24/7 when needed.
However, the best crisis is a prevented crisis. As expectations have grown, the risk environment for businesses has changed, and confidence risks have become new long-term strategic and operational risks. These risks include financial, environmental and human resources risks. Stakeholders are playing an increasingly important role in value creation and business continuity. Simply doing things by the book no longer meets the expectations of all stakeholders. We help you identify trust risks, create a crisis prevention plan and take the necessary steps within your organisation to mitigate these risks. In doing so, we work with our clients to build future scenarios and resilience that create value, not just seek to preserve them.
We help our clients to prepare for crises and turbulences, and to also get through them with a competent crisis management plan and comprehensive review of the situation – around the clock.
