The Hearken Approach

Are you really listening to your stakeholders? Are you providing value to your community through engagement? Are you converting your engagement efforts into organizational growth?

Who We Are

Hearken drives community engagement innovation. We help organizations better listen to and engage their stakeholders in order to build a sustainable community of supporters. We offer transformative and proven processes, training and technology to help you operationalize the process of community engagement. 

What We Do

Through our consulting, technology and data solutions, we facilitate sustainable community engagement design, delivery and growth for our partners. We help organizations generate actionable insight from their stakeholders - be that their audience, end users, customers, employees, students, or alumni, and strategize on how best to implement that insight into a more sustainable and successful business. 

Most organizations operate top-down, and don’t have adequate channels for getting feedback and brilliant ideas from the outside. We work with teams to break down organizational silos and facilitate a collaborative design process through this proven, phased approach: 

Phase I: Define the needs of your organization and stakeholders

  • Diagnostic Listening

  • Stakeholder Journey Mapping 

  • Community Insights Research

Phase II: Teach community engagement design and delivery process

  • Community Engagement Design

  • Engagement Delivery Roadmap 

  • Staffing Plan and Implementation

Phase III: Operationalize and scale community engagement

  • Sustainability and Growth Plan

  • Track and Measure Community Value and Outputs

  • Convert Community Engagement to Value (E.g., revenue, marketing, time and talent contributions)

We work closely with partners to develop competency in community engagement to ensure our approach is sustainable over time. We help carve out those pathways and teach processes that help you gather essential qualitative insights and apply it when you’re making the most important decisions. 

Who We Service

We’ve partnered with a variety of organizations, including newsrooms, museums, colleges, foundations, religions, and a variety of private sector emerging and established brands. We are constantly discovering patterns and cross-disciplinary insights to share with all of our partners.
