communicating value and shaping opinion

Public Affairs

In today’s global economy, public policy has an impact on nearly every aspect of business operations: trade, transactions, transportation, employee relations, equal employment, environmental impact … the list goes on.  No wonder then that companies and organizations devote attention to their government and regulatory affairs.  It is a critical component of doing business and often a “necessary evil” of the modern business world. 

Beacon partners are experienced public affairs professionals.  We have developed communications programs to support the public policy objectives of clients in the biotechnology, defense, transportation, banking/financial services, convention/exposition, food, minerals, and health industries.  Our approach centers on connecting issues management with business strategy development … and developing programs to help influence resolution. 

Public policy issues are “created” whenever people attach significance to a situation or problem and garner public involvement through activism or government intervention.  In most such circumstances, there is an adversarial component.  Beacon partners have had experience advocating for business clients engaged in “arguments” over labor policy (various unions), lending/insurance policy (ACORN), affirmative action (PUSH), compliance (OSHA), disclosure (SEC, FDIC, OTC), employee relations (EEOC, HRC) and health (FDA).
