Bringing corporate culture to life in reporting

Geo-political events and corporate scandals over the past year have sparked a global debate around corporate culture and its impact on value creation. The Netherlands has been no exception and, with effect from financial years starting on or after 1 January 2017, companies will be required to implement a change in the Corporate Governance code with regards to reporting on their corporate culture.  

As a stakeholder communications company helping international organisations to produce award winning annual reports, Black Sun has certainly seen culture move up the agenda in terms of client priorities.

The objective of our seminar is to share with you the findings of our recent research, Reporting on Corporate Culture, and look at some practical suggestions for how you can best communicate your culture story throughout your report. We will also have an investor share what they are looking for in terms of reporting on corporate culture.

At this event we will cover:

  • Our latest research into reporting on corporate culture
  • Practical examples looking at how companies are currently reporting on corporate culture
  • Tips, tools and suggestions for how to report on corporate culture from committing to good corporate culture to evidencing how culture is being embedded
  • What investors are looking for in terms of companies reporting on corporate culture, why it is important for them and how they use this information?
