SEPTEMBER 27|PURPOSE UNDER PRESSURE

Virtual

The past few years have taught businesses many hard lessons. Among them, that business leaders must expect the unexpected and no issue is off-limits for organizational response. Consumers have become increasingly skeptical of green and Purpose claims, while employees have choice – and aren’t afraid to use it. So much has changed during this time, but one thing has remained constant: the Power of Purpose. Where does Purpose fit in? Purpose Under Pressure examines business professionals across industries and levels to gauge their understanding of Purpose within their own organizations – and their personal adherence to it. This study unpacks the benefits of a strong Purpose during turbulent times, its value for recruitment and retention – as well as some early red flags for Purpose practitioners – and tools to embed Purpose within organizations for maximum benefit.
