We will help you to anticipate issues that may become problematic and to strategize core messaging to react to an emerging opportunity or crisis.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – National and International:
“Values” define an organization or company. McLean and Associates works with senior management to see that colleagues are treated with dignity and respect. Honesty and transparency, continuous improvement, environmental responsibility, health and safety of employees, and residential improvement – all are important aspects of building successful relationships.
