VISION

ACCELERATING THE GROWTH AND PERFORMANCE OF PURPOSEFUL BUSINESS

“Eight years ago we launched a global study of high growth companies, investigating the importance of three strategies known to drive it:  creating new markets, serving broader stakeholder needs, and changing the rules of the game.  What we found surprised us.  Although each of those approaches did boost growth at the organizations we studied, there was a fourth driver we hadn’t considered at all:  Purpose.”

 “In our data we find that companies with high levels of purpose outperform the market by 5%–7% per year, on par with companies with best-in-class governance and innovative capabilities. They also grow faster and have higher profitability.”

– Harvard Business Review (October 2019)
