To some, “corporate core values” might sound like lip service. That makes sense, since so many companies rely on brand identities that rest on a foundation of inauthentic values and an absent culture. But when an organization actually commits to the values it holds and works to cultivate a genuine culture, its brand resonates deeply with its target audiences and effectively serves its purpose.
Law firms that recognize the important role culture and values play into business development and marketing are positioned for success. Those that fail to embrace these brand attributes are destined to be surpassed by the competition. This is particularly true in our current corporate landscape, where companies are having to take positions on divisive issues and choosing to marry their brands with various social efforts, such as environmental stewardship.
