Hill & Knowlton's Take on Communicating Corporate Character
friends and family on who to do business with these days. That means, says Andy Weitz, of Hill & Knowlton, that consumers are "looking for the equivalent of a personal connection" in their shopping choices. Which adds up to a firm being demonstrably trustworthy and accommodating in its dealings with the public.

"Brand, reputation and behavior cannot be managed independently," Weitz advises, "because they have a collective impact on the public...Thus, the success of companies is contingent upon how consistently and authentically they communicate character to the public. Any disharmony in these communications streams — any imbalance — can severely damage public perceptions of a company."
