Building Brand Purpose: The Internal ROI

Boundaries between personal and professional benevolence are blurring. Consumers are putting their money where their values are. And the purpose-led orgs that are fully engaging their employees are the ones reaping the rewards with longer employee retention, deeper customer relationships and increased business results.

True long term success & ROI relies on building purpose from the inside out; engaging all employees from frontline to corporate office in living your purpose and becoming true advocates first.

Hear from Expedia, Foresters Financial, Story Money Impact and VRX Studios, a Connelly Partners company, about how to set a strong foundation and expand purpose into ethos, action, programming and community within your organizations’ four walls for long-term business impact.
