Stakeholder Intelligence

At a 2020 meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Salesforce founder Marc Benioff declared that “capitalism as we have known it is dead.” In its place now is stakeholder capitalism, a more fair, a more just, a more equitable, a more sustainable way of doing business that values all stakeholders, as well as all shareholders.

At Polecat, stakeholder discussion is collected under one platform to filter data amongst online media and social media sources to identify stakeholders, themes and trends of importance to global teams.

Through real time intelligence clients are able to track globally; regulators, governments, policy leaders, NGOs, academics, peer companies and think tanks across the broadest ESG, Reputation and Risk data.

Advisory and Consultant Support

We appreciate clients don't always have the time and resource to seek out the trends and themes developing across stakeholders and markets so our consultancy team are on hand to provide exec-ready reporting written by sector or issue experts.

We work as an extension to our clients, working in partnership to provide actionable intelligence and advise on policy development, communications planning and issue management.

"We’re delighted Willis Towers Watson and Liberty Mutual have chosen us to be at the heart of the RCI product. Reputation management is about valuing properties that were previously intangible - trust, goodwill and licence to operate in the courts of public opinion as well as law.

Polecat technology looks at the universe of global discourse to deliver real-time intelligence and impact metrics on previously intangible dimensions of corporate reputation.

We are proud to be the partner of choice for many of the world’s leading companies when it comes to actionable intelligence and data, and we look forward to serving and strengthening the reputations of future RCI policy holders"

“Successful and long-lasting modernisation for the insurance industry will be characterised by insurers and brokers providing proactive, rather than reactive, risk management solutions that integrate new and exciting technology capabilities alongside well-adapted but still evolving insurance risk transfer mechanisms. As part of the paradigm shift required to ensure the continued value and relevance of the insurance industry to customers in the shadow of a wave of emerging risks, Polecat’s technology may prove to be revolutionary for company risk, public relations and executive functions’ understanding of the reputational data ecosystem and their place in the public’s eyes. Long presumed the territory of science-fiction, but now very much ‘science-fact’, the capabilities Polecat has developed can help companies navigate the stormy waters of reputation in the modern world, scanning open-source data for threats on the horizon and helping companies to engage with post-crisis communications in the most effective manner possible: where, how and when the conversation is actually taking place.”

“Clients’ increasing exposure to both traditional media and social media has led to a rise in reputational losses globally. Most Reputational products in the market currently only respond to the crisis communication fees incurred following a reputational crisis event. 

This new product is one of the few that provides coverage for the loss of an organisation’s gross profit following such an event- providing financial protection and also giving clients the tools they need to protect their reputation. The ability to act quickly and transparently can have a hugely positive impact on a crisis outcome.”
