We are HKX

The Havas Village is a truly unique proposition – creative, media and health all under one roof. Our philosophy is to work together seamlessly, building teams around our clients’ needs not our own.
We operate with one vision, one shared way of working, and under one P&L.
Our Havas mission: To make a meaningful difference to the brands, the businesses and the lives of the people we work with.

Our people

We are a home for collaborators. At a time when the industry has fragmented across specialities and disciplines, we're proud to be truly integrated - physically and philosophically.

Vivendi

We are part of Vivendi, which means we have unparalleled access to entertainment and culture. These are incredibly powerful launch pads from which brands can make a significant cultural impact.

Being part of Vivendi sets us apart from all the other networks. This means we think about culture, not just comms. We believe that brands rightly have a role to play in culture, how they show up in people’s lives and the wider world, how they entertain, inform, and how they make a positive impact on the wider world. This is cultural impact. This is how brands make a meaningful difference to people’s lives.

Meaningful Brands

Meaningful BrandsMeaningful Brands
Our proprietary research study Meaningful Brands (that spans 395,000 people worldwide, 30 markets, 21 industries and 2,000 brands each year) discovered that:

75%

of brands could disappear and no one would care

47%

of brands are seen as trustworthy

61%

of people support brands who focus on purpose over profit

It's these key findings that have led to the creation of our Meaningful Brands strategic framework. A unique approach that has allowed us to understand that a brand’s value - how meaningful it is to its consumers - is defined by a combination of 'functional', 'personal' and 'collective' benefits. Used across strategy and planning teams in all our agencies around the world, Meaningful Brands acts as the 'glue' in our integrated process and provides a common approach to strategic thinking to ensure we deliver meaningful business growth for our clients.
