Please join the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship for a networking and knowledge-sharing event: The State of Corporate Citizenship 2017: How to Thrive in Today’s Global Environment.
You'll hear insights from The State of Corporate Citizenship 2017, a unique research report that reveals what's top of mind with executives and why the current global environment supports corporate citizenship efforts now more than ever before.
Stewart Rassier, Director of Executive Education, will share highlights from the report including:
- Corporate citizenship helps companies successfully achieve strategic goals, particularly when they invest in programs for at least four years.
- Companies are almost twice as likely to report success enhancing corporate reputation and reducing employee turnover when they integrate corporate citizenship objectives into overall business strategy.
- Programs to increase diversity and inclusion, and reporting on social and environmental performance are among the topics that have increased most in importance to executive respondents.
- Nearly 50% of executives reported that the Paris Agreement led to increased efforts to cut GHG emissions.
