Blueprint was pleased to be invited to present a paper at the Common Good Conference, June 21-23, 2018 at the University of St. Thomas Minneapolis. In this paper Charles Wookey, Helen Alford and Loughlin Hickey share the origins of A Blueprint for Better Business, the ongoing work towards advancing the common good through purpose-led business and early learnings from our work with some major companies.
Following Blueprint’s ‘Becoming a Purpose-led Employer’ panel on June 11th, we wanted to share five of the themes that emerged during the event.
Chaired by Andrew Hill, Management Editor of the FT, panelists include Kate Glazebrook, CEO and co-founder of Applied, the Behavioural Insights Team’s first tech venture, Maaike de Bie, General Counsel of Royal Mail, and Jason Stockwood, Simply Business Group CEO, previously MD of Match.com. The discussion focused on how businesses, from start-ups to large established companies, can best address the varying challenges of being a responsible & responsive employer.
This is just the first in our first in our ‘Principles of Purpose’ event series – our next will explore what it means to be honest and fair with customers. If you’re interested in attending future Blueprint events, please sign up to our mailing list.
