Engage Your StakeholdersWhat Do Your Stakeholders Expect of You?
Communication/Outreach Effectiveness Analysis
We can help you determine whether your story is effectively reaching your key stakeholders. Whether it is analyzing your online report traffic or assessing investor information (e.g., through Bloomberg and other tools), we can help analyze your effectiveness and prioritize improvements to get your story out.
We help you to prioritize groups and individuals to engage to get a fair representation of stakeholder perspectives. We can also help you engage your stakeholders—from focus groups to one-on-one interviews to online surveys—and we summarize the results with our proprietary scoring methods to make it accessible and relevant to you.
Your stakeholders are your decision-makers, doers, and partners necessary to keep your business in operation. Sustainability training can strengthen those partnerships—be it with executives, employees, or suppliers. Our team is highly-skilled in stakeholder training and education, providing highly-customized curriculum for a variety of audiences and topics.
Strategic CR Launch Plans
We can help you to maximize the return on your reporting efforts by developing a launch plan to include specific tactics for different stakeholder audiences. This may include investor-related targeted communications, outreach to ratings and rankings firms, employee presentations, or other creative internal and external communications.
For sustainability to be successful at your company, employees must understand and embrace your efforts. BrownFlynn develops sustainability employee engagement plans for a variety of clients and industries. Engagement plans build awareness, prompt employees to take action, and provide a path for employees to drive change in your organization.
