Michelle Sequeira of Mercer on the rise of human values and purposeful business
“UK firms are increasingly cognisant of the need to make sure that their corporate culture, their values, their purpose, is aligned with societal and human views,” explains Sequeira.
“The reason for this is stakeholders, whether that’s customers, employees, investors or even the media, expect organisations to live their company values. And this is clearly demonstrating that their policies, their practices and their benefits actually fit with what is presented to the outside world.”
REBA’s recent Aligning Corporate Culture and Human Values research, together with Mercer Marsh Benefits, explored how organisations can meet objectives ranging from environmental targets and workforce diversity goals, through to company purpose and having a wellbeing culture, and why boards need the experience, insight and support of their HR, reward and benefits teams.
This second report in REBA’s three-part Transforming Engagement series offers context and practical steps to support businesses in rethinking organisational culture, so that it engages employees and reduces people risks.
