In August 2021, ICMIF issued a survey to members to better understand members’ activities across their marketing and communications functions.
This survey had a firm focus on establishing whether those companies which do market their cooperative/mutual status are also outperforming their national markets. Further questions explored whether ICMIF members use their unique business model to attract talent and whether they communicate their mutual values to employees.
The subsequent report includes four specific sections:
- Executive summary
- 2021 survey sample analysis
- Financial analysis
- Points of difference
