What are Government Relations?

May 23, 2018

Government relations, while similar to public affairs, does have its differences. Rather than focusing on multiple audiences, government relations focuses entirely on influencing public and government policy on a local, state, regional, national, or global scale. That means getting in front of the key government officials and decision makers to influence their decision on a particular piece of policy.

The most commonly used government relations tactics include advocacy, lobbying, and identifying allies in other organizations or government officials. By getting in front of the leaders across the state or national level, government relations experts are able to educate them on a particular issue or piece of legislation to find common ground and a satisfying resolution. Businesses frequently hire government relations firms to protect their industry from changes to certain legislation, protecting their rights and the way they operate.
