3: CEO Will Johnson on Consumer Polling and Navigating Polarizing Politics 

The Harris Poll co-CEO Will Johnson recently sat down with Impact magazine to discuss the current state of consumer polling, and how brands can navigate today’s highly charged political climate.

But the further removed from the company’s line of business, the more caution its executives should exercise before speaking out on lightning-rod issues that may alienate key stakeholders. With that in mind, you can’t really go wrong with traditional corporate social responsibility efforts, such as service days and pro bono work.  – Will Johnson
