The Importance of Shared Value for Economic Recovery in Africa – 28 October
A trend toward “profit with purpose” has gained momentum in recent years, as a means to improve business resilience and social impact. Firm level competitiveness is increasingly based on the ability to solve social issues and build a sustainable future through the efficient and profitable delivery of products, services and operations. This is particularly true in the African context. Has the pandemic accentuated this new role of business in Africa or has it presented a setback in light of the perceived need for commercial survival?
Join Tiekie Barnard, CEO and Founder of Shared Value Africa Initiative, for a discussion on how companies following a shared value business model have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and how closer collaboration among business leaders across industries following a shared value approach will be key in shaping a post-COVID-19 recovery.
