Navigating ESG and the Workforce in an Era of Change

The first years of this decade have brought change in ways that we could not have imagined and the impacts are being felt from the entry level all the way up to director and board level workers. Companies are paying more attention to ESG and are preparing to make big changes to the workforce in the future.

PwC recently released report, The Director’s New Playbook: Taking on change, compiling the results from the PxC’s 2021 Annual Corporate Directors Survey. This report covers the broad impact of challenges brought by the past two years including social justice concerns, a divisive presidential election, COVID-19, and more.

Here’s an overview of some of the reports findings.

– 64% say ESG is linked to company strategy
– 25% say their boards understand ESG risks very well
– 47% think a fellow director should be replaced
– 71% say the board diversity problem won’t solve itself
