COVID-19 PR Pivot Successes

Pivoting During a Pandemic

Throughout our 22 years in business, HCK2 has built a strong competency around the need to pivot, both at a strategic level and in the logistics. Our team has an innate capacity to make adjustments on the fly, to adjust strategies when necessary and to pivot in ways that still achieve our clients’ goals. In fact, this skillset has informed our unique one-agency model, which allows our teams to flex across disciplines to deliver exactly what is needed, when it’s needed.

This is an important capability at any time, but especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the past 90 days, we have successfully pivoted for clients across industries and driven some significant media results by working closely with each client team.

Here’s a snapshot of how HCK2 successfully pivoted on behalf of our clients:
