How Joel is building a better working world

“I think the way we define value is changing. The market is looking hard at financial and non-financial metrics to understand what an organization is all about, what it stands for and what it contributes to the world. We’re helping organizations lean into that possibility by identifying opportunities to not only unlock financial value, but also to enable growth and support the broader purpose of the organization.”
