Zambezi | Creative Brief | Strategy   

TL;DR

The Ask:

In 2025 we need to still play the awareness game and get people to know who UKG is and what they do 

Goal:

Audience:

Digging deeper into this audience, company leaders across enterprise and SMB are both desiring to achieve more.  

Our primary target are executive level decision makers (ELDM) at companies with 1000+ employees: C-suite, President, Treasurer, Finance, General Manager, HR Director, etc. This is an audience that has the opportunity to elevate their workplace and current UKG customers across company categories. 

Small and medium business owners were a focus this year as well. 

Strategic Approach:

Show how UKG’s technology helps ELDMs take their workplace and their business from good to great. 

The Challenge:

Reach 50% aided awareness by 2025.

Situation:

While UKG has continued to gain awareness in the category people still aren't aware enough when it comes to who UKG is and what UKG does. 

Making progress matters, as other brands and competitors are gaining traction. 

My Role: 

  • Researched trends, audience. and competitive landscape surrounding the workplace in 2024

  • Helped put together creative thought starters and jumping off points

  • Helped to craft the strategic approach and opportunity for the campaign

The Opportunity:

Better capture the attention of ELDM’s by showing HOW we empower them to improve culture and business results. 

Over the past couple of years, our great workplace spotlight has been on the full company, but not ELDM’s. They are wanting to create great workplaces but don’t know how. 

The Insight:

Leaders want to create trust-based cultures for stronger businesses, but need the right technology partner to get them there. 

We needed to break through, especially when it comes to awareness, showing people not just why we exist but how we create great workplaces
