Supply Chain Impact Accounting: The Workforce Value Premium

Supply Chain Impact Accounting: The Workforce Value Premium

The 'S' in ESG (environmental, social, governance) has long been squishy and largely performative. There is urgent need to address this.

In a post affirmative acting world, diversity and environmentalism, simply for the sake of it, are gone. Every move must be tied to shareholder value, and enterprise orgs can't have a beige flag anywhere on the balance sheet or in the value chain. At the same time, organizations are pressured by everyone else to care about more than just profits.

Making impact measurable and tangible is how we drive positive change for customers, consumers, communities, employees, and shareholders. A monetary representation of traditional non-financial metrics lets enterprises satisfy their fiduciary duty, while showing consumers, customers, and employees their actions are more than just lip service.

This virtual conversation with Jill Miller, founder and CEO of Lunum, explored the topic of impact accounting within supply chain. Topics included:

  • How does 'doing good' create value? is the multi-billion dollar question—the answer requires entirely new measurements.
  • How the decisions you make as a supply chain professional matter to real people and impact human lives.
  • The world is changing how it views human capital and SCM needs be prepared for this change.
  • Authenticity = "go forth and set the world on fire."
