Corporate Context provides a range of services to help clients manage their reputational risks. Solutions can be combined and tailored to build a communication platform that delivers a coherent message. We specialize in aligning management initiatives addressing corporate responsibility and governance risks with an effective communication strategy.
Corporate Context also works closely with a leading certification body to promote assurance and certification in the areas of corporate responsibility and governance. By working together with a global network of specialists, Corporate Context connects clients to a wider world of resources and ideas for creative solutions.
Our services include:
We help to identify corporate goals and to formulate a reputation risk management strategy and related policies, drawing on our in-depth knowledge of global corporate responsibility risks and stakeholder expectations. We work closely with clients to develop the framework for implementing the strategy cost-effectively. This may form part of developing a broader, strategically-driven corporate responsibility program.
We develop corporate communication materials - ranging from company brochures and codes of conduct to sustainability reports - to drive a balanced and ongoing dialogue with shareholders and stakeholders. Using diplomatically persuasive communication techniques, the materials allow clients to build a consistent and compelling corporate narrative. We also facilitate dialog between companies and their investors around corporate responsibility risks and socially responsible investing.
For companies undertaking mergers, acquisitions or process improvements, cultural intelligence data are essential for a smooth and successful transition. Using rapid appraisal methods, we review the internal components and processes that define a corporate culture (e.g. language, attitudes, controls, customs and taboos) to identify potential frictions, sticking points, and reputation vulnerabilities.
We identify internal and external stakeholders, analyze their expectations and map their relative significance for a company's reputation. As an essential strategic planning tool, our stakeholder mapping provides insight into the comparative effort and resources needed to facilitate rewarding dialogue. We also assist companies in engaging more constructively with stakeholders, managing expectations more effectively, and reducing reputational risk arising from different interests.
Corporate Context offers tailored training sessions which give insight into new frontiers of risk and build internal capacity to manage reputational risk. Drawing on our international expertise and informative case studies, the training goes beyond simple instruction to build risk leadership and help embed reputational risk management into the corporate culture and strategy. We specialize in cultural sensitivity training to help clients better understand and manage cross-cultural differences in their workforce and with external, local stakeholders.
Corporate Context researches corporate responsibility and governance issues that are on or just below clients' risk radars and which may present a reputational risk. Our expert analysis places events in their broader context and helps assess their materiality for clients.
