A crisis can be a companys defining moment. Your relationships with stakeholders can be severely damaged or destroyed, especially in the age of real-time, round-the-clock media and online scrutiny. A time of crisis may be the ultimate opportunity to prove that your organization has the integrity, concern and competence to address negative issues constructively. The path forward requires close judgment calls in uncertain situations.
We add value in preparing for a crisis and in responding when the crisis occurs. Through the development of our proprietary Reflex Response System we are able to help guide you through crisis planning. Timely and effective planning, implementation and response can alleviate unexpected crises and prevent others from developing. As a crisis communications agency, we can help you build early warning systems and crisis communications plans before issues erupt into controversy.
HPR is a member of Weber Shandwick worldwide crisis response team. If a crisis occurs, we have the ability to rapidly assemble a team internationally to help our clients seize command of the situation before it slips out of control. Our experienced team can work with you to develop and implement a crisis management plan to manage, diffuse and resolve the crisis.
Our crisis work is guided by a persistent goal and theme: how can we transform crisis into opportunity? How can corporations under the glare of public scrutiny and organized opposition today be perceived as thought leaders and problem-solvers tomorrow?
Anyone who has ever faced the spotlight of a critical media knows what the phrase, “Moment of Truth,” is all about. What you do next will determine how your key audiences think about you for years to come.
Major change is everywhere. Are you prepared?
