We have been involved in drawing up detailed crisis management plans, and many scenario simulations - whether they be factory explosions, factory closures, industrial disputes, employee tribunals and product recalls.
By their very nature, a crisis can blow up anywhere, anytime. How effective your response is comes down to the scale of the problem and the preparation already undertaken to mitigate against likely incidents to ensure business continuity.
We work with clients to assess risks and prepare for worst-case scenarios. Such crisis management planning and training is good business and a sound investment in the future; the damage to reputation is all the greater for companies that haven't prepared.
Typical issues and incidents that can be business disruptive and damaging to reputation are:
Rumours can spread and damage quickly, all the more so today in a social media world. The basic steps of effective crisis management PR are not complex or difficult but they require advance work to minimise any future damage.
Whatever your crisis, MHW is here to help. We have experienced directors who are great listeners and fast workers. Feel free to call before it's too late and you're already looking to find those hard hats.
