It’s said that purposeful people find it easier to get out of bed. The Shared Value Business was born of a passion to help organisations be the best they can be, in terms of how they act as employers, community members and business peers.
Business strategists tell us we live in a VUCA world, i.e. Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. So, we can either make like Ostriches, or we can embrace and adapt to our macro environment.
For charitable purpose organisations, that’s about targeting beneficiaries effectively, understanding how to make the most difference to people’s lives and the world around us. Creating stable and sustainable income streams can require great change and uncertainty for staff.
For businesses, embodying strong values and ethics builds a business reputation which attracts and retains high quality employees and creates loyal customers, delivering positive financial, social and environmental benefits.
Take the path less travelled, be as passionate about your purpose as we are about ours.
