It involves the collection of information about the factors which have, or may have, an impact on business. We study, assess, visualize, examine & advice's. If required we train soft skill to the implementing agency. 

We find out the factors that give an edge to the company in meeting stakeholder’s expectations, regulatory compliances matching with global benchmarking within their required financial limitations and time frame.

An organization with sustainable vision and agenda only grows when they can assess & visualize threats for business in advance, unfavorable situations are the part of life & progress whether it is a man or corporate but identifying them to make strategic mitigation plan need skills & pro-activeness.

  • Identification of organizational Strength of CSR perspective,
  • Missing regulatory frame work & measuring level of core competencies.
  • Relationship of corporate, community, its key stakeholders & Govt.
  • Threats internal or external, own stakeholder directly or indirectly, identification of such threats in advance and develop mitigation strategy in advance is the right approach to do business with impact over the socio, cultural, economic & political turbulence.

Strategic management of Rehabilitation & Resettlement (R & R)

Infrastructure or heavy industrial project on one hand brings economic prosperity but at the same time they create an unpleasant and undesirable displacement of population from their ancestral habitat, uprooting them from their livelihood, immovable properties, their live stock wealth, religious and educational institutions with social disarticulation. The RFCTLARR Act 2013 had provided enough safe guard to displaced people as well affected people.

Having fair and transparent laws, rational corporate intentions there are many instances of community unrest, non cooperation and violent movements. But the “Sociostark” believe that Rehabilitation & Resettlement is the most sensitive & important aspect of project which decides the future of the project should be properly handled. Displacement is a painful process and every effort should be taken to avoid or minimize hardships of people‘s lives. We understand the ground reality that “displacement” is not “sacrifice” and demand of compensation is not “reward” it is their basic right of “entitlement.” We endeavor to make R & R plan based on identified factors and issues, develop execution methodology with active people’s participation.

We provide expert & skilled services in identifying factor of key issues and their solutions under ambit of law, acceptable to community & corporate.
