We’re in the business of meaning.

It shows in our approach to the work. We believe that brands succeed when they’re meaningful in an ever-evolving world. Because if a brand means something to people, they’ll feel something. And if they feel something, they’ll do something.

It’s reflected in our obsession with fostering a diverse environment for our people and partners, placing them and our greater purpose above just profits.

Meaningful Brands™

Meaningful Brands™Meaningful Brands™
For the last fifteen years, Havas has been dedicated to understanding and building Meaningful Brands™. Its annual Meaningful Brands™ report is a landmark study of brand value which interrogates new behaviours, shifting cultural dynamics, and priorities for people, businesses and brands in a complex world. The latest study surveyed 91,000 people across 10 global markets, along with 1,300 brands across 42 categories and reveals that:


of people surveyed are tired of brands pretending they want to help society when they just want to make money 


think the world is going in the wrong direction, at a global level


believe brands should be doing more to improve and support their personal health and well-being 

The role of our Meaningful Brands™ study is to explore these shifts. At their best, meaningful brands win people’s loyalty; they occupy a bigger space in culture; they have a deeper resonance in people’s lives; and they set themselves up for the long-term win. They combine purpose with customer centricity to not just grow, but “Grow Well” - giving back to the people and the planet. In many ways the expectations of brands have never been higher. And we at Havas think that is a good thing.
