We’ll also explore how businesses aim to attract, keep, and nurture talent within an organisation.

Target Audience

How do you make sure your organisation has the right people to deliver your Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategy?

People are an organisation's most valuable asset. You need talent and innovation to build a sustainable, resilient, and modern business. Luckily, there’s a 3-step plan to help you on your way. Attract, retain, and develop.

A workforce helps to shape the ESG strategy of an organisation. Their skills propel goals like achieving net zero, fostering diversity, and building an ethical, compliant business. A successful ESG strategy not only has a positive impact on society but also boosts business performance, curbs risk, and creates lasting value.
