July 23, 2020, LONDON – Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K), one of the world’s leading public relations firms, has launched Habits+ out of the agency’s London office, an evidence-based approach to starting, sustaining and stopping consumer and employee habits post-COVID, using behavioral science.
Habits+ enables H+K clients to better understand how their employees and customers can create good habits, sustain those habits over the long term, and stop unwanted and potentially un-healthy habits.
H+K’s behavioral science team will use Habits+ to draw on evidence from previous crises, such as the SARS epidemic and the response to Hurricane Katrina, as well as a wider body of scientific evidence from health, sustainability and employee change programs. It identifies eight ways to change habits, many of which are commonly overlooked, and which are practical to apply into employee or consumer campaigns and initiatives.
Habits+ is part of I-ACT, the broader support H+K is bringing to clients as they prepare to operation in post-COVID-19 economy. Read more about our I-ACT offering here.
