Proves Their Worth By Repairing Their Own Reputation

Status Lab is a digital online reputation firm that specializes in helping people and companies repair their image in times of crisis or maintain a good image. Based in Austin, founder of Status Labs, Darius Fisher is often referred to as a whiz kid due to the international success the company has achieved within a reasonably small amount of time.

Given this, the company found itself in a perilous situation when it suffered it’s own reputation crisis due to the actions made by a former executive of the company. The local news broke a small story about a few actions that this executive made and soon it snowballed into a story that could have ruined the reputation of Status Labs.

However, Status Labs is much more than the one executive they quickly dismissed, and given the fact that they have over a 1,000 clients that they have successfully helped Fisher knew what to do quickly. It turns out the company knew how to practice what they preach.

Status Labs has built their business model based on the principle that a change in behavior is essential in order for a change in reputation to occur, so that is what they did in this situation. They started by changing the leadership in the company. The executive that started the crisis was forced to resign ad then their PR team gave this news to the media along with an open letter. They also attached a team photo to the press release in order to show real human faces behind their company name.

Second, Status Labs took a step back and realized that they did not engage enough with the local community of Austin they worked within. This made it simple for the news to become negative, so they quickly turned this around by spending the last year working with a dozen different local charities. Not only did it show that they are team that cares about the community, but it also ultimately helped to rebuild team morale.

According to O’Dwyer PR, The company is now back on top of their game and their blooming client list proves that their reputation is once again safe. Plus, who better to help repair a reputation then a company that proves they can do it?

Socialism for the Betterment of the World: Thor Halvorssen

Socialism is the political and economic theory of social organization that believe that the means of production, distribution, and exchange of a product should be owned and regulated by the community as a whole and not by a minority few or one body or person. According to Halvorssen, a human rights activist and a believer in freedom and equal rights for all individuals, socialism has many sides by which it can be looked at such as historical, academic or policies from other countries which can be socialist. It all depends on and comes down to the government of the day and the leaders governing the given country.

Thor Halvorssen is an activist, of human rights and the president of Human Rights Foundation and also the patriarch of the Oslo Freedom Forum. His belief in everybody having fundamental rights and freedom is deeply rooted. Having experienced this first hand, from his father who was a political prisoner for his believe and fight for people to have freedom and not be oppressed, to his mother having been shot dead for the same belief and his first cousin is a prisoner at Venezuela, his stands on issues to deal with human rights become more clearer and stronger.

He believes that socialism is not evil, but if used by the wrong hands, masking under this policy, they may take advantage and use this to destroy the economy of a country and the nation itself, by looting and having resources misused. This can be done by the parties involved setting various prices for commodities only because they want and have the capability to set them as they want. As a result of this, there is massive shortage of the product at this moment bringing a humanitarian crisis.

A nation that redistributes wealth will not help much in eradicating poverty. Poverty can be dealt with by a government being able to provide more money for the citizens of the country and there being enough, hence dealing with debt. The human rights activist believes that Senator Bernie Sanders has a good view of socialism and would support him and his moves than others in the party.
