WEBINAR RECORDING: Corporate Culture and Sustainability - A Research Approach

The public is no longer satisfied with corporations that focus solely on short-term profits. Corporations need to consider broader human needs as well. As we all know, some companies succeed in effectively balancing these two considerations, while many others do not. But do we truly understand what makes the difference?


Recorded live on Thursday, June 2, 2016 at 11:00 am PT / 2:00 pm ET

Corporate sustainability has captured the attention of much of the world over the last few years. Based on a comprehensive six-year global research program, we will discuss the practical implications for assessing and addressing cultural factors that impact corporate sustainability.

Join us for an interactive discussion on our findings, including:
  • Leadership behaviors that impact employees’ attitudes towards the importance of sustainability to their company
  • The factors that lead to the perception of a clear vision for sustainability
  • How leadership behaviors and other aspects of culture, as measured in our research, affect employee engagement with the company in general
By participating in this webinar, you will learn:
  • The specific cultural dimensions that differentiate companies leading in sustainability from their lagging counterparts
  • How the elements in one cultural dimension can affect outcomes in other cultural dimensions, e.g. how specific leadership behaviors affect specific aspects of organizational climate
  • How to assess and address your own company’s culture in terms of readiness to support sustainability
