StakeWare® is a leading stakeholder trust measurement platform. Building stakeholder trust is more than a nice idea. It’s a strategic imperative that recognizes the changing dynamics of the digital landscape and the numerous benefits created by proactive engagement. Engagement done well is like a savings fund: The value adds up over time and acts as a cushion in times of reputational or fiscal distress. Companies that are more aware of stakeholder interests are more likely to avoid crises because they are better able to anticipate risks and opportunities.
Managing stakeholder trust is difficult because there are many different stakeholder groups, each with its own particular needs and perspective. StakeWare® offers a contingency framework that identifies which dimensions of trustworthiness are most relevant for which types of organizational stakeholders.
StakeWare first beach-head product focuses on Law Enforcement where we are working to provide a near real-time understanding of the level of trust citizens feel about the Police. Uniquely, they develop state-of-the-art analysis tools that, unlike status quo Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies, are fair and unbiased in their analysis of the opinions across social groups in the community – including the views of minorities, youth, and the socioeconomically disadvantaged. Sociodemographically fair NLP analysis is crucial for police departments who are keen to improve their relations with such groups.
