Sustainability Watch: What can we learn from 15 purpose-driven companies?
SEPTEMBER 17, 2020
Why a business does what it does – its purpose – has taken on even greater significance since the onset of COVID-19, bringing new challenges while amplifying others – social injustice, income inequality, and climate change, among others. Many companies that had never thought about purpose beyond their bottom line have now been forced to re-examine their role in society.
In this webcast, we examine findings from new research on the motivations, triggers, successes, and challenges that companies face as they embark on a purpose journey. Join us to learn about the key themes that emerged from interviews with 15 purpose-driven companies – a diverse group of industry leaders that average 100 years in business.
Key learnings you will take away:
- Why are companies invested in a purpose beyond profit?
- Why do they embark on a purpose journey?
- What are companies doing to bring their purpose to life?
- How do companies govern against purpose?
- What are the links between purpose and business performance?
- How are companies using purpose for talent management?
