There s a lot at stake research over the years reveals much l.jpg
There’s a lot at stake: Research over the years reveals much

  • On average, companies that did a better job of attracting, developing, and retaining highly talented managers earned a 22% higher return for shareholders (“War for Talent,” McKinsey & Co., 2006)

  • For market-leading companies, a significant improvement in communication effectiveness is associated with nearly a 30% increase in market value (“Connecting Organizational Communications to Financial Performance,” Watson Wyatt, 2004)

  • Companies that communicate effectively command a 19.4% higher market premium than companies that do not (“Communication ROI Study, Watson Wyatt, 2005)

    And yet a gap exists …

  • 40% of workers feel disconnected from their employers (“Job Satisfaction Falling”, Conference Board, 2005)

The evidence supports that high-performing companies create an effective communications-driven culture that syncs with strategic intent.

Case study maximizing opportunities from awards l.jpg
Case StudyMaximizing opportunities from awards

Challenge: Win award and use it for advantage in a tough market for premier talent.

Opportunity: Leverage PwC’s recognition as one of Working Mothers “Top 10 Best Places To Work.”

Results: Reduced recruitment & retention expenses by increasing awareness through more than 25 million media impressions. Targeted media in local key markets where this issue was most acute, including San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, North Carolina, Minneapolis, Maryland, Texas, Orange County and New Jersey.

Case study building employee brand support l.jpg
Case StudyBuilding employee brand support

Challenge: Brookdale Senior Living needed to

forge a new identity in the aftermath of a merger.

Opportunity:Work with management from both companies to determine brand attributes for the merged company by soliciting input from inside the company, as well as from potential clients.

Results:Following a series of focus groups (8 external in four major markets & 4 employee groups across all geographies) the following was accomplished:

  • A new corporate identity selected

  • Brand elements codified

  • Target audiences determined

  • Most importantly, employees were part of the process and became emotionally vested in the success of the “new company.”

Challenge:Establish our client’s leadership in diversity initiatives (and consulting) through the most cost-effective means.

Opportunity:Create and share a library of content available to diversity executives via a company-sponsored Website.

Results:This award-winning Website, promoting PwC’s Diversity Initiatives, positively increased perceptions among targeted “new hire” audiences. Also compressed sales cycle for nascent Diversity Practice.

Risky Lessons From Judo & Fast Cars

by Sarah Murray

When Ed Machir became a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers he hardly imagined himself being challenged by a judo black belt. Nor did Ann Thornburg, another partner, expect to find herself working on solving a murder mystery.

Challenge: Realize company’s full potential following a lengthy and complicated merger of equals.

Opportunity: Unite leadership thru “third party” validation of comprehensive, ground-breaking learning & education initiative designed to bring senior management together.

Results: Developed Financial Times feature that objectively positioned company as a leader in the professional services industry, raised partners’ perceptions on merger success by more than 10%.

Case study building awareness changing behaviors l.jpg

Challenge: Gain recognition of leadership role in employing women and minorities with those same audiences.

Opportunity: Develop a series of ghostwritten articles for leadership positioning on a range of diversity & ethics issues.

Results: Stories appeared in targeted national business publications to measurably underscore the firm’s commitment to the critical audiences (women & minorities).

Case study leveraging diversity for brand support l.jpg
Case StudyLeveraging diversity for brand support

Challenge: Extend Waste Management’s (WM) corporate diversity reputation proactively for lasting market and brand advantage.

Opportunity: Create “high-intensity credibility” around WM diversity with strategically valued audiences through uniquely available media.

Results: Determined that the“soul of a company” story, based on WM’s diversity philosophy and practices, could best be told in Diversity Journal to achieve the following:

  • Validate strategic direction with financial audiences.

  • Prove viable brand differentiation with institutional and individual customers.

  • Build “common ground” credibility with managers, employees & other internal groups.

  • Create visibility with core regulatory audiences.

  • Attract and retain high-potential people.

  • Motivate supply chain improvements.
