Purpose definition & development

See more

Drawing on extensive experience and the RISE methodology, we work with clients along the entire purpose development and strategy process. This includes helping organisations source their purpose through their heritage, as well as shaping a purpose in light of future growth opportunities. We guide organisations through stakeholder consultations and work with executive teams to articulate the final purpose, set ambitious goals, and ensure alignment with corporate strategy.

Business transformation & embedding purpose

Once the purpose and goals have been defined, the hard work starts. We help clients pull the right organisational levers to embed purpose and ensure it is lived throughout the company. We advise on the governance and operations related to embedding and implementing purpose and sustainability and engaging internal and external stakeholders in the process. We help build partnerships and make connections to other purpose-leaders.

Sustainability & stakeholder engagement

Employees want to work for a company that makes a difference in the world and that treats its people well; investors are increasingly looking beyond short-term value; purpose-led brands create stronger customer relationships. We develop strong, authentic communications to bring the purpose to life and engage all stakeholders.

Public & government affairs

Corporate purpose does not prevent the risk to a company of changes in the regulatory framework that may impact its ability to operate. But monitoring that risk and developing authentic mitigation strategies that consider a company’s broader impact and role in society can help build trusted relationships and manage risk in the long-term. We provide high-level counsel on how to leverage purpose when navigating the regulatory and political landscape and develop public affairs strategies that put sustainability at the core.

As employees, customers and investors pay increased importance to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors, companies need to do more than pay lip-service to diversity & inclusion. We help organisations develop strategies for closing the gender gap and embed ethnic and social inclusion in the organisation.
