The shared purpose of environmental & social change
At the end of the day, we've reached an era where there are so many dynamics at play in running a business and the importance of environmental and social change. But this environmental and social awareness is not only for investors that you're working with — frankly, your employees and your customers are asking the same questions.
Employees and customers want to be part of organizations that are actually committed to creating a better world, not simply creating a better business outcome.
It has to be something that all levels of an organization believe to be true — and shared purpose gets ignited through how you treat your employees and how you treat your customers. It has to be something that, from top to bottom, the organization sees as meaningful, valuable and authentic — and it starts at the very top.
