Ron DeLong's insight:

Like almost EVERYTHING, it is not, and should never be 100% about COST.  All the out-sourcing fanatics out there, fail to see it (Outsourcing) as 'giving-up'!  You admit defeat and give away the ability to make a direct impact on customers (internal and external)!.

The focus on the quarterly numbers and not the Total Cost of Ownership is an issue.  The 'silos' created, and the over-abundance of information can make it difficult to hear/see what could be problems.  The myopic focus on 'spend' could be the issue.

D. Dewan's curator insight, May 11, 2015 4:21 PM

The discussion has put forward a number of reasonable ideas:

- Ethical business practices can lead to success in sustainability.
- Positive company culture can encourage better employee engagement.

 

It is true that a focus on ethics and sustainability may contradict a company's profit-driven culture in the short run. However, companies need to take into account increased public awareness, since they cannot make a profit when business reputation is damaged.

It doesn't always have to be about the law or public opinion. Creating a culture that inspires employees to take positive action will definitely reshape the way they engage and identify with their organization. Such an environment is effective in prevention of corruption.

 

The message is simple. The sooner a company can embody positive values, the better it can minimize reputational risk and achieve its financial goals in the long run.
