Stakeholder engagement is all about achieving a shared goal, through shared responsibilities and sharp selection of the right stakeholders for your projects. Here’s a few examples of how we support our clients at Glassroots.
At Glassroots, we help the city of Antwerp in co-creating their international marketing towards companies, visitors and brains with all key stakeholders in business, culture, academic institutions, museums, administrations and politics. “Connect 2 Antwerp” will launch the first of 4 multistakeholder partnerships by the end of 2014. Do you think you can make a difference in this project? Just give us a call.
The Flemish public broadcast company VRT is initiator of a multistakeholder partnership to help unemployed youngsters get a first job experience. Glassroots brought together a broad arena of divers stakeholders and guided VRT in setting a common goal, targets and in selecting the right stakeholders to achieve that goal. www.ervaringwerkt.be was launched in January 2015 with Adecco, employer organisations VOKA and Unizo and employment agency VDAB. One of the partners explains how it works in this short video.
The New World of Work (NWOW) Community, a project that was started and is managed by Glassroots, recently welcomed new partners Proximus and ING Bank into the multistakeholder partnership founded in November 2011. CEO Dominique Leroy explains in this blog how important NWOW is to Proximus. They joined existing partners Microsoft, USG Professionals, ALD Automotive, ProTime, Flanders Synergy and SD Worx. At Glassroots, we are founder, process designer and project manager of the Community since 3 years. Do you feel like joining the #NWOW Community? Then sign the #NWOW Manifesto on the website today.

The renewed European Innovation Center of DHL-Deutsche Post will open early 2015. As part of the strategy development, Glassroots built a stakeholder engagement program with the key internal stakeholders to identify cross-departmental partnerships and to build support for future external stakeholder partnerships. Do you have issues with internal stakeholder alignment? Or are you looking for innovation through employee engagement? Just give us a call or book one of our workshops.
Citizen’s participation is a hot topic in many public institutions or cities. Too often, it is set up without a clear goal, process and/or the right stakeholders. Recent research by the University of Amsterdam shows how citizen’s protest can be turned into participation. At Glassroots, we recently started a project for Zaventem and audited a project for CD&V, after the project design and project management for the M34 think thank of Open VLD last year. This is about learning by doing. We are curious to learn about your experiences.
