CEOs Prepared to Respond to Societal Issues on Behalf of Company
Americans increasingly expect companies to play a role in speaking out on issues that impact the public and society, while at the same time, more and more executives agree they have some responsibility to respond to major societal or geopolitical events
Many executives feel that they are ready to meet this responsibility. According to our polling of executives in attendance at the second annual Transformative CEO Summit in April, 3 in 4 (74%) indicated they feel prepared to weigh in or respond to societal issues on behalf of their companies.
As CEOs evaluate their purpose and responsibilities going into 2022 and beyond, deciding when and to which crises and concerns to respond will likely remain a critical element of the CEO remit.
