The infographic takes a snapshot of an average citizen and shows how government communications can directly and positively impact her life, making it easier, healthier and more successful. It also presents how stressful and overwhelming life can be when she doesn't receive the government information that she needs. The document illustrates how public sector organizations can, and must, prioritize reaching more stakeholders to make an impact by delivering the information each citizen needs, exactly when it's needed.
"The ability to effectively engage with citizens and then motivate them to take action is playing an increasingly important role in achieving overall mission results for public sector organizations," said Scott Burns, CEO and co-Founder of GovDelivery. "Every government organization needs to understand the power of this level of engagement. Those who do, are using technology to connect with more people and then leverage those connections to drive action, increasing citizen engagement by delivering relevant messages where and when they are most effective."
This infographic includes visual data points that show how public sector organizations can connect with more people and increase the effectiveness of their citizen engagement programs.
