I still want to know why; to dig a layer deeper and find out where the impacts are: Is it recruiting? Better -- and more consistent -- quality goods and services produced by happier employees? How much of this impact is from the supply chain? How much is from customer/consumer preference for these companies (due to their ESG performance) driving up demand and higher margins for them?
