In today's uncertain economic times, the most successful organisations recognise that it is crucial to build and maintain the confidence of their stakeholders. By telling their performance story effectively and consistently to the investment community, regulators, commentators and customers, they earn support for growth and change.
While the empirical record of performance delivered through financial reports is central, effective reporting goes well beyond the numbers. Our Growing Beyond research shows that companies which consistently outperform their peers spend more time and attention explaining their business strategy, risk assessments, environmental performance and contribution to the societies of which they are part.
Reporting magazine brings together insights and ideas which we believe will interest and inform business executives who are involved in reporting in its broadest sense.
