About Caburn Hope

about Caburn Hope - communication experts
Caburn Hope is a group of intelligent and performance-driven communication experts – but we would say that! Our global award-winning consultants specialise in marketing-led HR campaigns. With a background in HR communication and marketing, we’re a busy team of strategists and creatives based near Brighton - the UK’s leading creative hotspot – working both locally and globally.

Company History

Inspiring people since 1993. Before the rise of internal communications, ahead of the internet and into the digital age; as Human Resources took over from the Personnel function and gave way to talent retention and development; from people being seen as a resource to being empowered. Throughout this time, we’ve worked with some of the world’s leading businesses and brands. These are all companies who inspire participation to help people maximise their opportunities at work. Keeping our focus on the ever-changing world of work, our heritage in marketing means we understand behaviours – and the power of inspiring communication.

Brand Story

What’s in an identity? The Morse code in our brand is a metaphor for our approach to decoding business goals and formulating why people would be motivated to achieve them.

Look closely at our logo and you will see the Morse spells our initials C and H. This code crosses the red circle to signify the global experience of Caburn Hope. Are you ready to decipher our brand messages? Decode our Morse code here.

Brand Values

Creatively driven, people focussed, empowered and healthily ambitious – that’s our recipe for inspiring people to be at their very best. It underpins who we are, what we stand for and how we work with people. Our values guide the business decisions we make and the solutions we deliver – and there’s no difference in the way we treat people, inside and out.

CREATIVELY DRIVEN

We always see the possibilities and find new ways to solve problems.

Our people are open to using new techniques, new technologies and new ways of inspiring people.

PEOPLE FOCUSSED

We always put the human experience at the centre of everything we do.

Building relationships and being mindful of the contributions people make are paramount to our ways of working.

EMPOWERED WORKING

We see all people as equal.

As a team, we encourage everyone to express their talents at work and enable them to achieve their aspirations.

HEALTHILY AMBITIOUS

Always motivated to be the very best at everything we do.

We strive to be recognised as the number one in our field and to define our market. But we also believe this should be sustainable and balanced by our other values.

“If the reputation of a company’s products and services is its face, the talent brand is its heart and soul” — Hank Stringer & Rusty Rueff [i] Previously, we’ve written on revitalising reward communication, unleashing purpose power within an organisation to attract top talent and how to onboard with impact. All great stuff… but reward, purpose, or even onboarding communications are meaningless without a solid Employee Value Proposition (EVP) pulling together all the business components. You may have the best company face, but does it have heart and soul? As the landscape of work changes, younger workers (chiefly, Gen X and Millennials) are no longer motivated by the same factors Read more

Every year, when I see the Coca-Cola ‘Holidays are coming’ advert on TV, it makes me feel a bit warm and cosy. Now, “warm and cosy” aren’t generally words you’d use to describe drinking Coca-Cola – so what’s going on? And what the devil (you may ask), does this have to do with Reward communication? Well, everything actually. The reason I feel warm and cosy about Coke is down to the way in which they use Contextual and Content Marketing. Contextual Marketing comes from the world of online shopping, where brands use their knowledge of you, your needs and desires to serve up more content that they think will be Read more

This piece is inspired by this year’s pay review time – a time for new beginnings and decisions to be made relating to pay, performance and the Reward package for the subsequent year. It’s also, particularly from a communication perspective, a chance to reflect on who an organisation’s people really are, what they need and the role Reward plays in effectively engaging them. So, I thought that it’s a good moment to pull together some insights and thoughts from the experiences I’ve had whilst working alongside some of the world’s leading Reward exponents and our clients – reflecting on how critical a dynamic communication strategy is when Reward is changing Read more
