ESAYP Breakfast on the Social Compact between business and society

In a post Royal Commission in Banking world, how does community and business leaders view the social compact as it applies to the corporate sector. Has the community raised its expectations of business? Is merely delivering shareholder value going to be enough for businesses to thrive in Australia? Do Millennials expect more from businesses than other age groups?

In Company Pulse 2019 CEDA presents new information from and for Australian business that goes beyond sentiment, detailing the challenges facing business leaders and providing insights to inform business strategy.

This nationwide survey of community and business leaders:

  • Provides insight into current priorities for large companies;
  • Considers the positive role senior executives play in influencing economic, environmental and social reform agendas;
  • Articulates community expectations around honest and ethical behaviour; and
  • Measures social licence to operate; performance across key measures; and raises the responsibilities and obligations of business to employees, shareholders, customers, suppliers, local communities and governments.
