COMMUNICATIONS’ GREAT(ER) EXPECTATIONS
WE COULD HAVE SEEN SOME OF IT COMING.
Companies pulled back their marketing budgets in the early days of pandemic uncertainty and in-person event cancellation. Then the build-up that had to be spent by the end of Q4 2020 hit like a Tsunami. We all hustled to make it work.
Most marketing departments and agencies got the job done from home, sometimes more productively, proving it could be done. So employees wanted – some nearly demanded – permanent work-from-home options. Those options are mostly in place.
After calls for social justice roiled and inspired the country, employees and RFPs made it clear that DEI programs and policies were on their mind, and progress was expected. Like, yesterday. Companies appear to be making real progress.
