Proactive public engagement to support your projects.
Strategic communication practices are the foundation of public engagement success. We use these practices to guide the narrative on a project and prevent it from becoming emotionally charged.
World-Leading Community Outreach Practices
We employ proven best practices for public engagement, ranging from principles of risk communication to techniques recommended by the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2). Our expert strategies garner high stakeholder support.
More than just dealing with conflict, we understand why a project might receive pushback from the public. Identifying the root of how stakeholders view a project allows us to better facilitate the discussion and make the public champions of the project.
Our stakeholder involvement record speaks for itself. Whether facilitating stakeholder groups or educating the public about bond referendums, we get the job done, and done well.
I was very pleased with the turnout and thought the meeting went well. The composition of the stakeholder group is the best community representation I’ve seen on one of these planning groups. Also, great distribution around the District. I was impressed with the willingness of the group to speak up.
The public involvement strategy for our proposed new law enforcement facility was developed and implemented by JEO's Community Engagement team. Their work was innovative, well thought out, transparent, and effective. JEO's public involvement strategy played a significant role in developing broad community understanding and support for the project.
