What are the main elements of risk?
The threat associated with the business
One of the most harmful elements of a company crisis could be the potential impact on their corporate reputation and brand image. The perception of the organisation from loyal and new customers is vital to their success. Brand image can take months or even years, dependent on the size, to develop a positive corporate image, therefore suggesting a large risk during a crisis period.
The element of surprise
On most occasions, a crisis hits organisations unexpectedly. It is essential to help mitigate the level of risk associated to reduce potential short and long-term financial losses. Without a strategic contingency plan set in place, high-risk scenarios that may occur can lead to drastic brand perception issues for an organisation.
A short window for decision making
If a crisis does occur, it is imperative not to delay response time towards the issue. It is advised to clearly communicate to your customers and to be transparent about the situation in hand. During this, you should speak to your customers and not ignore them, this can help to build back trust and strengthen the overall business relationship.
