• GLOBAL IMBALANCES
Global income continues to rise yet the benefits are not felt where it matters – in improving the quality of lives, in shared prosperity, and in value added to society. The high degree of inter-connectedness also means that the level of awareness on this disparity is heightened, and the reaction is both swift and disruptive. There is less trust and the answers cannot be found in government alone – it must draw from the contributions of all sectors. Businesses are increasingly called upon to help solve society’s problems.
• CHANGING BUSINESS EQUATION
The playing ground for competitiveness and sustainability in the future is in this arena – in doing good, not just looking good; in purpose, not just profits; in driving social change, not just shareholders’ value.
• DOING THE UNTHINKABLE
Globalization 4.0 will usher in a new wave that rides on the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The effect can bring seismic changes in the geopolitical, economic, technological, social and ecological subsystems as the locus of power shifts. It can also hold the biggest potential to bring about better balance through a more equitable and inclusive development.
The measures of organizational success will be expanded to include not just revenues and profits, but as social enterprises that bring in employees as real partners, that engage with their communities, that espouse ethics and practices that do no harm to people, planet and society.
