Establishing and cultivating healthy relationships with stakeholders is essential for the sustainable operation of any organization.
“It’s important that relationship-building and communication be managed holistically to minimize risk and achieve strategic objectives.”
The challenge is managing and integrating communications with employees, customers, suppliers, business partners, investors, policy makers, regulators, community groups and others.
Companies often divide responsibility for these relationships among different functions (Investor Relations/Finance with investors, Legal/Compliance with regulators, Human Resources with employees, etc.). However, it’s important that relationship-building and communication be managed holistically to minimize risk and achieve strategic objectives.
We take a strategic view of stakeholder relationships. Our approach considers the interests and motives of different stakeholders, real and potential alignment or misalignment with company objectives, and actions that will activate and optimize these relationships to achieve the organization’s goals.
