Almost any crisis can turn the company into front page news. Without appropriate handling, damage to life and property may result and the company's hard-earned reputation and bottom line are likely to suffer. Management is under a spotlight during a crisis and the decisions they take in the early days of a crisis can determine whether the company emerges stronger or goes into decline. Even when it survives, shareholder and investor confidence in the management team can be greatly reduced or, perhaps, destroyed.
Although many companies believe that they have the resources to manage a crisis, very few are equipped to handle the breadth of issues that arise in a complex business environment.
Crisis Containment is an entirely new approach in value-added services and gives access to professional crisis management experts to protect you company’s revenue and reputation before, during and after a crisis. Companies have access to a wide panel of carefully selected professional services experts who can advise and manage the response.
