To know the Higher Purpose Index for your organization
The next wave of investing is being shaped by generational shifts in money, mentalities, and manpower. The next generation of investors think about investing in a fundamentally different way.

My work has led me to believe both society and employees are yearning for a higher sense of purpose. Society wants more from its leaders, be it from government, companies, the community, etc. Employees simply want more from their places of work including their leaders.
I recently sat on a panel of executives from purpose-driven companies for the launch of Fit for Purpose 2016, a yearly index published by Radley Yeldar which ranks the world’s most socially, environmentally, and economically purposeful companies. The panelists came from different industry segments – consumer goods, education, and of course, I represented high technology.
When organizations succeed it is because its people know what they do and why they do it. We say such an organization has “purpose.” You can define purpose very simply as the impetus to meaningful action, what gets your organization up and moving toward its goals.
We hear more and more that organizations must have a compelling “purpose” — but what does that mean? Aren’t there already a host of labels out there that describe organizational direction? Do we need yet another?
It’s time to change the way we work. I don’t mean a revolutionary time management system, or a productivity breakthrough. I’m talking about integrating purpose into the workplace.
