Can Your Firm Survive a Reputation Crisis?
Updated: Mar 30, 2021
If a reputation crisis hits your firm, whether it is an unfavorable news story, poor client review, disgruntled ex-employee, or something else, do you have a plan?
Having a solid communications platform, and the processes for which to handle communications to prevent crises from erupting- especially online- is critical for successful firms today.
You'll need a core set of tools as part of your platform: updated social media channels, google business pages, industry specific sites, email outreach systems, and ongoing press release management. They are vital to establishing a strong base from which to communicate with your stakeholders, potential clients, and the public.
In today's increasingly digital environment, it is more important than ever to engage your stakeholders in meaningful ways BEFORE a situation arises. The best way to do this is to get your communications platform up and running, frequently updated with fresh, valuable content that creates deeper connections with your clients, vendors, staff, and stakeholders. Having a platform to speak from that is connected to engaged stakeholders is a critical component to preventing a crisis- and - if needed, for responding and managing when a crisis hits.
