About salt Communications

salt works with some of the world’s top global brands and businesses, specialising in simplifying complex business challenges and creating clear and compelling communications that deliver positive change.

salt’s work addresses two of the most important issues facing business today – external reputation and internal alignment – through social missions; thought leadership and influencer programmes; brand story-telling; and employee engagement.

We’re called salt because we believe in being straightforward and transparent in everything we do.

We became a B-Corp not because we believe that business has a responsibility to create public benefit, but because we believe there is a huge opportunity for businesses that do so and that companies who understand and embrace this will succeed by earning the trust and support of all stakeholders.

In our industry, communications, there is a fundamental shift taking place from reputation ‘management’ to transparency and from controlled, paid-for media to earned attention. The best advice we can give our clients is that their businesses should be purpose-driven and conducted as if people and place mattered. We have to live that ourselves, and we want to demonstrate that through B-Corp status.

The Change We Seek®

salt seeks to change not only its own business, but to advocate more widely the advantages of business creating public benefit. salt’s work over the last 10 years in creating and communicating social missions for multiple global brands and their NGO partners has helped deliver not only public benefits (improved sanitation; increased hygiene habits to reduce child mortality; better nutrition; greater access to water; more social mobility) but also direct commercial benefits.

salt seeks a world where businesses want to create public benefit and feel able to celebrate their commercial vested interest in doing so.
