Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) has been in the spotlight increasingly in recent years. Different parties have been trying to exert pressure on businesses to operate in a more sustainable and socially responsible way, besides looking only at profitability and shareholders’ interests.
According to the findings from Mercer’s 2020 Global Talent Trends Study, about half of the executives intend to align their business practices to a multi-stakeholder success model over the next few years.
Building a sustainable business is, and will continue to be, top of the agenda for C-suites, especially following the recent COVID-19 outbreak. Organizations have to think of sustainability beyond their corporate strategy perspective. It should be at the very center of their purpose: who they are and how they operate. Your executives and employees will play a key role in rebuilding the company for recovery and driving long-term sustainable changes.
The roadmap to sustainable business illustrates how people align with the purpose of the organization through culture, strategy, leadership and HR practices, and people can have a further impact on environmental and social sustainability through daily operations.
