Why purpose-led organizations are winning consumers’ hearts
 

This is a critical time where corporate purpose must be translated into action. A higher purpose is not merely about economic exchanges but reflects something more aspirational. Today, companies are under intense scrutiny regarding how they respond to the pandemic, and the world expects them to act with empathy and purpose and have a real and positive impact on the world. Not only do purpose-led organizations play a critical role in supporting relief efforts and driving economic and humanitarian recovery, but also in supporting social justice movements. For example, the current situation brings more attention to the need to be purposeful. Many organizations across the world expressed their solidarity with the black community to fight injustice and racism Purpose-driven organizations are focused on multiple stakeholders, from employees to communities.

Capgemini Research Institute wanted to understand the consumer perspective in particular, especially because there is a real business risk of losing customers if organizations do not positively contribute. How exactly is purpose viewed by consumers in the current crisis? Do consumers expect organizations to contribute to COVID-19 relief efforts and will they reward organizations that do? Does a positive contribution to today’s crisis lead to increased engagement and loyalty?

To answer these questions, Capgemini  Research Institute surveyed consumers across seven countries – France, Germany, India, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States – at the end of May. It also analyzed social media engagement for over 1.5 million conversations for a sample of 19 companies that made notable positive contributions to COVID-19 relief efforts over the course of March, April, and early May.
