Leading National Health Care Retailer Leveraged Cultural Transformation for Business Growth


Like many businesses, a national health care retailer recognized the dynamic transformation underway in American culture.

In 2020, the combination of the social justice movement and the COVID pandemic hit home especially hard, with so many of the retailer’s staff on the front lines. Across the enterprise, they took action, reflecting a deeper commitment to honoring America’s culturally diverse voices.

For the health care retailer’s Enterprise Insights team, they recognized a one-time investment in a research project or consultant was not enough. As the needs of the organization and of the consumer change too quickly, the company needed the support of a long-term partner.


• Align around best practice multicultural research standards and ensure Culturally Fluent research is practiced across the enterprise.

• Socialize culturally sensitive approaches to multicultural insights, to enable diversity, inclusion and marketing performance.

• Stay nimble to the organization’s emerging educational needs, and quickly hone-in on high-impact research opportunities as they emerge.
