Who is idgroup?

idgroup embraces Conscious Capitalism, a philosophy held by a community of leaders working to elevate humanity through business. We believe that businesses should exist for reasons beyond making a profit, which we see as a necessary means to achieving purpose–not as an end in itself.

Our commitment to this approach received validation in 2018 when idgroup achieved a major milestone through recognition as a Certified B Corporation. Similar to the “organic” certification for food, a Certified B Corp is a business verified to meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.

We believe that achieving purpose begins with knowing why your company exists and what you stand for. Without this, you have no compass to find and stay focused on your True North. Our narrative-based, From the Core® research and planning process, advances this belief through the development of a plan that helps organizations shape, share and live their unique story.

Our three idgroup expert teams work collaboratively to serve our clients:

  • Research and Strategic Planning
  • Integrated Branding and Marketing Communications
  • Brand Reputation Research

Our Purpose

As a Certified B Corp we are a company where people grow and thrive, where we do great work for clients, make a positive difference in the world and enjoy the process.
