There’s no doubt about it, cause marketing has matured---or, at least it is in a massive growth spurt!  Industry studies abound that illustrate the ever-increasing demand for authentic corporate-cause partnerships.  There is also some exciting NEW DATA about the return on investment (ROI) that can be realized if organizations get their cause and social impact strategies right – particularly around employee engagement.  For instance, companies with engaged employees outperformed those without by up to 202% and a key driver of employee engagement is employees being proud of their company’s contributions to society -according to Dale Carnegie Training & MSW research.*  Pretty impressive.

To adapt to the changing landscape, what’s needed is a shift from building brands to "activating" them — from simply projecting what a brand is to optimizing what a brand does in order to move people closer to transaction. This is the Activation Imperative."
