The social element of ESG

Unlock the value of a sustainable workforce

People are your most precious asset

People are central to the success of organisations. In addition, the way companies treat their people across their entire value chain is coming under increasing scrutiny. It only takes one badly treated employee, supplier or customer to create a movement against your company, with potentially serious consequences on reputation and financial losses.

Creating a sustainable workforce is a key component of the ‘S’ in ESG (environment, social and governance) but organisations face several challenges:

  • ensuring an engaged, skilled and healthy workforce across the value chain
  • the ability to measure, manage and disclose reliable people metrics across the value chain
