Culture as a Strategic Asset - A Healthy Culture Pays Off
NACD 2017 Blue Ribbon Panel Report (Copies will be available at the meeting.)
Researchers have explored the link between corporate culture and performance, and the key takeaway is: Healthy cultures pay off. Various studies have shown that companies with high scores on culture-related criteria such as mission and employee involvement outperform peers on customer satisfaction, safety, quality, profitability, sales growth, productivity, and shareholder returns. Having a healthy, resilient culture is essential if companies want to be able to adapt to new business dynamics and competitive challenges
The oversight of culture is, by definition, a key board responsibility - the 2017 NACD Blue Ribbon Panel report on Culture is a call to action for directors to elevate the dialogue on culture (including culture in the boardroom) and help their organizations translate values into value.
Our keynote speaker will be Mike McGuire, CEO of Grant Thornton LLP. Mike will be joined later by Sue Cole, Managing Partner of SAGE Leadership and Strategy, LLC. Sue will lead a Blue Ribbon Panel Report Q&A session.
