New Survey: American Customers Want Companies To Focus On Employee Investment, Not Politics


ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- A national survey released today by PLUS Communications and GS Strategy Group finds that heading into a divisive presidential election year, customers want businesses to focus on taking care of their employees over pursuing politically-motivated social campaigns.   

The survey of 1,000 U.S. customers found that "[c]ompanies can prove their commitment to putting people over profits by showing how they treat employees," and that "[c]ompanies should stay neutral, not cater to the far left or right.  Having a centrist image is key to maintaining or developing a positive image among customers."

"This new research shows that companies can boost their image, even in today's polarizing political climate, by focusing on employee well-being," said PLUS Communications Managing Partner Danny Diaz.  "Smart companies should take advantage of the booming economy to take care of their employees, not cater to the politics of the moment."

"Despite what some talking heads might have you believe, our research shows that companies would do well to steer clear of politically divisive social campaigns," added GS Strategy Group President Greg Strimple.  "Investing in employees is a critical way for companies to show customers they have placed a premium on the right priorities."
