good morning.

There’s at least some evidence that it probably is, at least if Americans are the judges. % of Americans said they were “shareholders”. However, he is down from 69% six years ago. Employers are also the top priority for 31%, up from just 9% six years ago. Yet polls show that only 49% of respondents say large US companies have a positive impact on society as a whole. And only 37% say they have a positive impact on the environment.

Just Capital also looked at the performance of corporate purpose signatories compared to other companies ranked annually in the Russell 1000. the answer is pretty good. BRT Signer:

– Paying an estimated 3.2% more workers a living wage.

– Provide 3.5 hours of career development training.

– 26% reduction in workplace safety incidents per hour worked.

– Five times more likely to align climate commitments with science-based target initiative goals.

– 3.2% more likely to have disclosed a pay equity analysis by gender and/or race.

Business leaders trying to bring employees back to the office give examples such as showing up at the office in favor of long weekends at vacation homes. This is a role reversal from the past, when the boss worked from a seaside or country retreat and his subordinates worked hard at their desks.
