They happen unexpectedly and can blow out of proportion on social media before you know what’s hit you. Acting swiftly and decisively makes all the difference
It’s about dealing with a sudden emergency that could cause significant reputational damage to your business.
Crises take many forms. It could be a serious accident at one of your sites, a product recall, a sensitive data breach or ransomware attack. It could also be an affronted ex-employee or supplier slating you on socials.
A crisis brings increased scrutiny from the media, customers, prospects, and stakeholders, leaving you with nowhere to hide. This has the potential to seriously impact your reputation.
Good crisis management, both on and offline, is all about containment, dampening its impact. Think damage control, providing reassurance and ending interest in the situation.
