Communications as a force for good

Communications as a force for good

Purpose-driven businesses make different kinds of products and deliver different kinds of services. They have different processes, consumers and suppliers. Use different materials and are part of different value chains with different stakeholders. So, what do they have in common?

Trust and the role of communications

These businesses have one very important asset in common. An asset nobody can do without and that defines all our relationships. An asset that is becoming ever more important. That asset is trust. We need our consumers and all internal and external stakeholders to trust our authenticity, purpose and sustainability claims. Trust is what makes people want to work together. The new economy requires organisations that are built on dual missions of making profit and making positive impact. Trust is essential for growing your business and your mission. We see that real trust only comes from living up to your purpose and putting your values in everything you do. This takes continuous effort. The role of communications has become essential to harness the power of trust and support the transition to a new economy.
