Multinational Corporation Says Pay Attention to Climate Change or Die | Dare Care Share | Scoop.it

Any business must future proof their operations.....step off the sidelines and move into action.


If every major company affected by climate change - not only in the food and beverage sector, but other impacted sectors such as tourism, insurance and transport - were to address the issue as one of business survival, and step change their efforts for delivery, we could together make a significant impact.

How Being Grateful Can Change Your Life

How Being Grateful Can Change Your Life | Dare Care Share | Scoop.it

It's not just for Oprah devotees. Recent studies show that practicing gratitude can positively impact your life - and researchers believe it may help us break bad habits. 


Gratitude is about focusing on other people, says Dr. Jo-Ann Tsang, a psychology professor at Baylor University, who led a study which will appear in the July 2014 issue of the journal Personality and Individual Differences.


“Previous research that we and others have done finds that people are motivated to help people that help them--and to help others as well. We’re social creatures, and so focusing on others in a positive way is good for our health,” Tsang said in a statement.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 24, 11:54 PM

Actually, I would go one step further and say there is karma when people help each other. Somehow, the universe knows we are helpful people and others respond to us in like manner. Just think if we thanked people i.e. students for even little things that they do.

The Purpose Economy describes how a new type of economy is taking shape, one that will emphasize serving the people.


Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

By choosing work rich in purpose, we become vulnerable. Vulnerability is at the core of being human. It will require a new kind of leadership to find creative ways to make it safe to be vulnerable. This is the riddle of leading in the Purpose Economy.

Attracting Conscientious Consumers

Attracting Conscientious Consumers | Dare Care Share | Scoop.it

Consumers around the world are rethinking how and what they buy. They are moving away from purely economic-based decisions and instead, factoring in their social and environmental concerns.


Many businesses are not prepared for this new trend of conscientious consumerism. To avoid missing opportunities, they should consider some of the decisions that companies who are catering to sustainable consumers have made, and the results that those decisions have had on their bottom lines. 


Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

This Accenture study includes companies such as Whole Foods Market, Hertz, Brazil’s Suzano Papel E Celulose and Kenya’s Safaricom.

How Corporations Can Change The World (For The Better)

How Corporations Can Change The World (For The Better) | Dare Care Share | Scoop.it

When your employees are working on boring tasks that don’t relate to their interests or talents, it won’t be long before many seek other opportunities. Similarly, employees who are constantly exhausted and stressed will have difficulty being innovative and creative.


They should be able to take time off and come back without resentment or difficulty. Employees should be able to migrate toward areas within the company that interest them. Those are the areas where they’re typically going to bring value and new ideas.


Companies also need to foster “emotional vitality,” which stems from company culture and relationships. Important social connections happen in the workplace, whether in-person or virtual.

Mixing Business and Social Good Is Not A New Idea

Mixing Business and Social Good Is Not A New Idea | Dare Care Share | Scoop.it

More and more business schools are building programs to support students who want to do business while doing good. In addition, companies are rebuilding their recruiting processes to attract top talent that cares less about financial rewards and more about social impact. It seems like every day I see a new blog post from a thinker or business leader discussing how to innovate a process or build a whole new business model to make a profit and a difference. One key theme in these conversations, even if unspoken, is that this is a new, unexplored territory for both entrepreneurs and established businesses.

An Open Letter to Pope Francis on the Ethical Economy

An Open Letter to Pope Francis on the Ethical Economy | Dare Care Share | Scoop.it

I am of course very, very heartened by the recent statements of your Holiness about the need to care for the poor and weak, and to be mindful of the excesses of capitalism, but also from authoritarian collectivism.


I am aware of the key role that the Catholic Church has played in the moral economy of the Middle Ages, and how many Catholics, individually or collectively as members of Congregations and Catholic social movements, are engaged for the Common Good. I am inspired by historical examples such as the Banks of Piety of the Dominicans, which lend money without interest to the poor, and drove out usury-driven banking from their territories.


Yet, as many humans, I am also concerned about our human future. We presently live in a system which believes natural resources are infinite, and we are destroying the very eco-systems on which we depend; and the same system believes that knowledge that could benefit humanity should be restricted and kept artificially scarce, through Intellectual Property restrictions that slow down innovation, hide solutions until they are believed to be profitable, and sell vital medicines at inflated prices, amongst many other issues.

The Future of Sharing

The Future of Sharing | Dare Care Share | Scoop.it

Living comfortably has always, to some extent, relied on owning many goods. But this is becoming less and less the case. A new worldwide “sharing economy," composed of startup ventures whose products consumers rent or share instead of own, is blossoming across the globe.


Some sharing services are already quite famous: Zipcar, Craigslist, and AirBnB, for example.


Others are very new on the scene and just starting to gain widespread recognition, such as the book-exchange Web site Paperbackswap.com and the Lego-set-swap site Pleygo.


All these services and more get the spotlight in Beth Buczynski’s new book Sharing is Good: How to Save Money, Time and Resources Through Collaborative Consumption.

Smart profits, smart values and sustainability from a bank boss who dares to be different

Smart profits, smart values and sustainability from a bank boss who dares to be different | Dare Care Share | Scoop.it

Anders Bouvin is the boss of the most successful bank you've probably never heard of. And he, like the bank he runs, will challenge your preconceptions.   

    

For starters, this African-born, Swedish chief executive of Handelsbanken's growing UK operation doesn't receive an annual bonus, ...[and] has been with the Swedish bank for 28 years.

    

Most surprisingly, the 55-year-old supports west London's Queens Park Rangers Football Club with a passion intriguing for a Swede who spent the first 10 years of his life growing up in Zimbabwe.

   

….Anders Bouvin…was thrilled to be offered a job…in a company "whose values coincided completely with my own".

    

Those values - long-term-ism, and a philosophy of de-centralization encapsulated in the slogan "the branch is the bank" - seem almost too good to be true in a current banking era of fines, debt crises and outsourced customer service.

  

Big banks, according to the popular narrative, were the primary causers of the global debt crisis thanks to their reckless investment in high-risk mortgage-backed bonds.

    

Handelsbanken says its branches, such as this one in Aberdeen, come first


But Handelsbanken remained above the fray, emerging with a balance sheet strong enough to make European banking regulators purr with delight.


…next to no marketing keeps overheads down and return on equity up.

     

At Handelsbanken returning a share of the profits to long-term staff is also key. If the bank exceeds the average profitability rate of its peers, then surplus profits are put into a fund and distributed to all the staff.

    

Handelsbanken
*  Founded in 1871
*  Has no sales or market-share targets
*  Staff get flat salaries without bonuses
*  Claims to have achieved higher profitability than the average of its rivals for 41 years in a row


...Handelsbanken, headquarter[ed] in London, is expanding to meet increased demand while some of its larger rivals get smaller.


"Many banks are having to absorb huge losses and have had to shrink to repair their balance sheets... and there are clear indications that SMEs [small and medium-sized businesses] are bearing the brunt of this. It's very sad."


All in all, Anders Bouvin appears the least likely candidate for executive burnout you'll ever meet.
