As we are co-builders on new work cultures, we are keen on being updated with the latest trends and waves approaching organizations and companies all around the world.
Employees have been asked to bring their whole self to work as organizations try to create a more inclusive and productive work environment. This is fundamentally different from a decade ago when employees were expected to leave their personal perspectives “at the door.” Employees also expect their employer to get more involved in the societal and political debates of the day. According to a Gartner analysis, 3 out of 4 employees expect their employer to take a view on the societal and political debates of the day.
The shifting nature of organisations — how they relate to their employees, communities, and their role in society — is creating the next, new major C-suite role that will emerge this year: The Chief Purpose Officer. Currently, these responsibilities are widely diffused across HR, legal, communications, and other roles in the organisation. In 2022, these will be consolidated into this new role.
