This webinar, organised by the FIDIC Future Leaders Advisory Council, will be looking at an issue that is increasingly important for young professionals – company values and are they being lived up to by the firms that they work for or want to join.
In a recent survey of nearly 700 large companies, it was found that more than 80% published an official set of corporate values on their website. Senior leaders, in particular, like to talk about their company culture. Over the past three decades, more than three-quarters of CEOs interviewed in a major business magazine discussed their company’s culture or core values – even when they were not specifically asked about it!
Corporate values statements are nearly universal, but do they matter? And, if they do, are firms living up to them and what are the effects when they don’t? Making values mean something is crucial and with companies under ever more scrutiny over issues like ‘greenwashing’ and sometimes saying one thing on paper and doing another in practice, it’s arguably never been more important for firms to ‘walk the talk’ when it comes to their values.
This webinar will highlight the importance of taking an all-round view of companies’ activities and look at how they impact on their vision and values. Increasingly, it’s clear that young people are looking ever more closely at companies they are considering working for and they want to know that they are joining a decent firm that aligns with their own values. People just won’t stay with a company that doesn’t fit with their values so getting this right is crucial.
Other issues to be discussed at the webinar include corporate values and ESG, social impact and social value and how best to demonstrate it, integrity and much more.
