Achieving Sustainable, Long-term Growth with a Values Driven Organization
Traditionally, organizations are fixated on maximizing shareholder value: chopping the business outlook into quarterly segments, exceeding earnings expectations, and aggressively closing deals.
Traditionally, organizations are fixated on maximizing shareholder value: chopping the business outlook into quarterly segments, exceeding earnings expectations, and aggressively closing deals. Each of these are viewed as mainstays to keep a business thriving – but, does this way of operating facilitate long-term growth? What sacrifices, with regards to partnerships, relationships, or reputations, were made to achieve short-term growth? What behaviors are organizations rewarding, when we expect team members to do whatever it takes to close a big deal and “hit targets”? We have seen the consequences of these practices in the headlines—accounting scandals, fraudulent business operations, and toxic workplace environments.
Recently, there has been a cultural shift to create value for all of an organization’s stakeholders: employees, clients, suppliers, local communities, the environment, and shareholders. The idea of maximizing shareholder value, at the expense of other stakeholders, is not conducive to long-term success and becoming a dated philosophy. So, how do companies create a workplace to enhance stakeholder value?
