“Purpose can drive differentiation within the most commoditized categories and provide relevance to even highly skeptical consumers. It can sustain price premiums, increase market share, and garner greater share of voice in a fragmented media landscape. Purpose also galvanizes a workforce and helps to recruit talent, especially millennials.”

Topics covered in the 56-page playbook include:

  • Defining Purpose for Today’s Organizations
  • Differentiating Brand Purpose from a Corporate Mission
  • How an Organization Determines Its Role in Society
  • Ensuring Purpose Is Authentic and Connects with Customers’ Passions and Expectations
  • The Challenges to Overcome in Defining Purpose
  • The Benefits of Being Purposeful
  • How Purpose and Doing Good Can Lead to Brand Growth.
