Organisations are focusing on the Social pillar of Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) more than ever before, thanks to the growing recognition of the value of addressing the social side of the business.
Factors such as increased pressure from stakeholders - both internal and external - along with the changing workforce dynamic have helped create this shift. Indeed, today’s workforce is becoming increasingly more diverse, with each generation having unique motivations and expectations. Organisations need to adapt to these changes to help look after their people and retain top talent.
Where does safety fit in?
Broadening our scope and understanding of what "safety" means across the three pillars of E, S and G is key for safety leaders to be future-ready. Most organisations measure safety performance that is misaligned with the business goals or backward-looking or not mature enough to help align with the business's objectives that reflect the reality of the changing profile of the workforce.
Developing a mature way of measuring safety performance across the three pillars is key to helping businesses achieve their strategic long-term goals. This will help organisations secure their social licence, and they will be perceived as acting in a fair, trustworthy and appropriate manner towards their people - in other words, addressing the social pillar.
