  • Leading through a crisis: The importance of executive profiling during the Covid-19 pandemic

    April 8, 2020

    by Abigail Van-Arnold, Associate Director During this strange new world of social distancing and self-isolation, our lives as we know it have been temporarily turned on their heads. While some short-term lifestyle changes, like only leaving the house once a day are obvious, I find myself noticing smaller habitual changes too. Among these, I’ve realised that I now open marketing emails from companies far more frequently than I used to. Whether it’s emails from my...

  • Content connects: shifting your B2B comms strategy in an uncertain time

    March 17, 2020

    By James de Mellow, Associate Content Director It’s become clear that the next few months are going to be anything but business as usual. The evolving coronavirus situation is a worldwide public health crisis and organisations are rightly putting the health and wellbeing of their employees first. A secondary, but nevertheless important, concern for businesses is understanding how they can continue operations in a landscape that is constantly shifting. Conferences and events have been cancelled...

  • Guiding principles for scaling culture during hypergrowth

  • Leading With Impact: FleishmanHillard Fishburn launches 2019 Authenticity Gap Report

    July 17, 2019

    Consumer expectations are higher than ever, and in an age of greater transparency and oversight, companies can no longer say one thing and do another. We expect organisations to be authentic and to have a point of view on the relevant topics that matter most and back up their  words with  action. If they fail to do so, trust will quickly erode and customers will move elsewhere. Campaigns such as Extinction Rebellion have driven climate change even higher up the global agenda, while issues...

  • The balancing act of work life balance

    May 22, 2019

    As most thriving organisations hone in on a need to empower and motivate their talent, one could assume the notions of freedom, flexibility, productivity and profitability all sing from one melodic HR hymn sheet. From brainstorming on a beach to parenting with productive panache, countless “think pieces” would have you believe that the professional/personal pieces are falling into place. Especially across the developed world. Work-life integration – where flexible working, remote working and always-on media...

  • Employees – the real stars of digital transformation

    February 28, 2019

    Digital transformation – two words many of us are far too familiar with, yet still sometimes don’t really grasp. The opportunities offered by digital transformation are endless, which can make it challenging to visualise what it means in concrete terms. Although the concept has been around for a few decades, it is still a hot topic discussed by individuals and businesses alike. It has even dominated the agenda of the World Economic Forum over the...

  • Let’s Get Together – Issue One of We Are All Investors

    January 14, 2019

    Your company’s investors are more than your financial shareholders, they’re also your customers, your employees, your stakeholders, even the media. Of course, this has always been true. But today, it’s truer than ever. And this is why we believe your reporting communications, your purpose, your brand, your employee engagement and your corporate communications should be aligned to create a sum greater than its parts. Due to our belief in this alignment, we've created something that brings thought...

  • Three ways internal communications can support agile operation at scale

    July 25, 2018

    It’s no secret that large organisations with traditional hierarchies are increasingly being buffeted by disruptive competition and dynamic markets. There’s a strong argument to suggest traditional structures are no longer fit for purpose. Instead, businesses are increasingly looking to adopt agile principles to inform the way they operate, so they can compete more effectively with nimble and disruptive competitors. This way of working holds the promise of “higher team productivity and morale, faster time to...
