C+T Report 2021: Happiness Reset

Twenty-twenty; the year that marked the beginning of a new decade ultimately resulted in a re-evaluation of our lives, our futures and the world we live in. At the center of this reset stood the global COVID-19 pandemic, but it was by no means the only causal factor. The pandemic has acted as a catalyst for behavioral change, accelerating slow-moving macro trends as well as creating entirely new ones. While the impact on human behavior can easily be exaggerated, it is undeniable that we are going through a dramatic alteration that will be looked back on as culturally pivotal. We could label 2020 as the new apocalypse. Yet, in the face of disaster, we also witnessed a revelation. The confinement of life in lockdown opened the door to new attitudes, behavior and values. 2020 not only forced us to stay inside, it also fundamentally changed how we seek and attain happiness. Leading to a fundamental ‘happiness reset’. So, what defines this post-2020 consumer, and what is the role for brands? This report uses a unique Human Drivers framework to capture how people are now seeking happiness and wellbeing, and how this is driving new behavior and expectations towards brands.
