Thought leaders from government, civil society, and the private sector play an important role in creating and maintaining business value. As these groups’ influence evolves, companies must take a strategic and process-driven approach to stakeholder relations.
Our comprehensive approach to stakeholder engagement is based on more than 15 years of experience working with companies and their stakeholders in settings ranging from corporate headquarters to remote operations and sourcing locations.
Our five-step approach starts with a rigorous assessment of business objectives and the identification of key stakeholders. We use these results to design and execute a comprehensive engagement process—from internal company preparation to engagement facilitation and follow up.
