Financial Crisis Management

A financial crisis in your business can be extremely difficult to navigate. That’s why it pays to be prepared. Prevention is ideal and requires one to be able to identify symptoms associated with a financial crisis, which can include impacts from a market crash, an issue with cash flow, or some kind of financial malfeasance.

Managing a financial crisis is difficult and will require professional input. Tucker/Hall has 30 years of experience navigating intricate and nuanced crises, and offers a diverse set of skills and ideas — as well as seasoned consultants and associates. Below are some best practices that can help your company during a difficult crisis situation.

Have a Plan in Place

Tucker/Hall is uniquely qualified to help you establish a plan for managing a possible financial crisis. Your plan should address the chain of communication in a crisis situation, establish tasks and responsibilities for the crisis management team, and determine a process and an order of priorities for varying scenarios. The first step in dealing with a crisis situation is to be sure that all key parties are aware what happened, and they have all possible relevant information. Once all key participants, including crisis management team members are informed, you can begin to implement the plan.

Be Communicative and Upfront About Details

Whether or not you have a pre-established crisis management plan, it is vital to communicate honestly and openly.  The public will be looking to you for information.  If you don’t inform them about what’s happening, someone else will — which can lead to conflicting information and confusion. Communicating honestly and openly can help reduce the flow of misinformation and allow you to more effectively take steps to fix the issue at hand.

Continue Working to Solve the Problem

Regardless of the details in communicating to the public, the media and the team about the changing circumstances, it is imperative that the organization continues working towards improvement or solving of the problem. As you take these steps, keep your audiences informed and make sure they know what you’re doing, why, and what you hope to accomplish.
