Not bad at all. As the global conversation around capitalism is changing, more and more businesses are focusing on a strategy to balance profit and purpose. And that seems like a wise move, cause research shows that companies with a moral purpose are considerably outperforming their peers without one.
Purpose-driven companies provide employees with a clear sense of direction and inspire them to go that extra mile. Their employees are much more engaged, and they attract and retain more talent.
A moral purpose also adds customer value and creates a deeper connection with customers. Many customers today make decisions based on how companies treat their people, the environment, and how they support the communities in which they operate.
Are you working for a purpose-driven company we all need to know about? Or do you know one we definitely should check out?

There have been many concerns about Qatar’s suitability as a host country but even more touched on is the treatment of workers hired to build the infrastructure. This is something that FIFA should have been aware of when the decision was made to host the event in Qatar due to the knowledge that the country relies heavily on migrant workers and its exploitive labor system.
For the last two years, we've been working on a book about Haier, the Chinese manufacturing firm reinventing management as we know it. Writing this book was a long, interesting, and intense process, but we managed to wrap up the final manuscript of the book earlier this year, titled "Start-up Factory." Although the book will only be published in September 2022, we gave Corporate Rebels Academy community members early bird access to the final manuscript. Here is a selection of their reactions to the book.
