We create value through connections, not in isolation.
As a Certified BCorporation, it's been great to be a part of #BCorpmonth across Australia and New Zealand. It's fantastic to be involved in a community of business that is playing their part in creating a better world for our community and for our planet, now and into the future.
As BCorps we've been asked to reflect on our hope for the future of better business for a better world. In my work in asset management I'm increasingly seeing the importance of connectedness to creating value for stakeholders. Connecting people with assets, connecting assets with each other and ultimately, connecting people with each other.
The World's largest and most successful companies are now primarily built on intangible assets rather than tangible assets. This shift over the past few decades has changed the way we create and perceive value. It's no longer enough to have a good business case - we have to make the human case. That requires us to do more than create value, we need to create meaning.
I hope for a future where work is meaningful for everyone and each person can play their part in creating a better world.
What do you hope for?
