Managing reputational risk

The value of companies vests increasingly in their reputational goodwill. The risk of losing this value is acknowledged as the ‘risk of all risks.’ And yet, while a solid and sustainable reputation is today’s foremost competitive advantage, many organisations struggle to put reliable processes in place to identify, assess and proactively manage reputational risk.

Hewers has developed a brand new, innovative crisis communication and reputation risk management tool, ResoFact™, to measure and manage reputation, identify risks early and develop actionable plans to mitigate damage.
