The Challenge

As part of an initiative to work with private sector firms, an independent federal agency hired our client to manage individual subcontractorsstreamline processes, and ensure maximum efficiency.  

Our client was awarded a five-year contract for the agency’s New England region. Throughout the engagement, they expanded their service into other states. Unfortunately, that meant hiring practices and pay rates were standardized, causing many independent subcontractors to see their compensation reduced.  

As that pay rate reduction happened, people began leaving negative reviews for our clientimpacting their reputation and making it more difficult to recruit talented people. 

The Solution

This client was referred to Haley Marketing through another marketing firm because they needed help managing their online reputation in the face of this challenge. The number of negative reviews they had accumulated due to pay rate reduction by the federal agency was impacting their ability to recruit. They needed to build up and proactively protect the reputation they had worked years to build. 

Our team reviewed the client’s online reputation to determine which platforms received the most attention and activity. This showed us where to prioritize our efforts. We concluded that Indeed and Glassdoor were the primary targets for reputation management, and Facebook was a secondary target. 

The Results

The results of our efforts were extremely positive. By proactively reaching out to the individual subcontractors, asking them to fill out a satisfaction survey, our client was able to increase their number of positive reviewsget ahead of potential negative reviews, and boosting their average rating.
