Reputational risk assessments to plan for the risks which can hurt you most
Insignia passionately believes that the most effective crisis management takes place before the event occurs. Running a reputational risk assessment is the first step in crisis management planning and therefore reputation protection.
Insignia’s consultants run reputational risk assessments which identify and prioritise events, incidents and issues which could threaten an organisation’s reputation. Of course, we cover obvious events like fire, product recall and environmental incidents but by applying an innovative approach and the skills of our experienced consultants, we tease out many other reputational risks that would otherwise remain buried within the organisation.
Assessing reputational risks from the outside in
In addition to utilising the knowledge of company insiders to identify likely risks, we also examine businesses from an external standpoint and uncover additional risks that conventional audits can overlook. Insignia consultants have worked throughout the world providing crisis communications advice to help organisations navigate their way through a crisis and we will apply our own insight and experience to assess the risks facing your organisation.
The risk landscape revealed by the reputational risk assessment leads on to action planning to remove, reduce or management your key reputational risks. Our recommendations will form the basis for further crisis communication planning, crisis management plans and materials based on high priority risks.
The experience of our clients shows that by identifying risks and developing crisis communication plans to deal with them, businesses can significantly enhance their resilience to crisis.
