Purpose beyond profit

Purpose Beyond Profit: The Value of Value - Board-level Insights

Executives globally agree on the increasing benefit of understanding and communicating the value creation potential of their organisations to build relationships with stakeholders and improve integrated thinking and strategic decision-making.

Deriving insights from a survey of executives across the globe, this report outlines trends and challenges in measuring, disclosing and understanding the value that companies create. Questions covered a range of topics investigating how value is thought about and understood, how companies approach strategic planning and performance measurement, and whether executives believe that they and investors have the right information for decision-making.

The story of how value creation is achieved and sustained is important, not only for executives – who are responsible for the successful stewardship of the business – but also for a wider range of stakeholders. In many ways, the integrity of the value creation story is essential to building trust in organisations.
