This report draws on the reflections gained from these interviews about the impact of recent political trends on business in the UK, and provides practical considerations for boardroom discussion on:
- Understanding and acting on political risk
- Using stakeholder engagement to identify risk and opportunity
- Navigating uncertainty with broad business purpose
- Enabling a wider awareness of the business environment through board diversity.
With a thought-provoking foreword from Stephen Adams of Global Counsel, we hope this report helps boards reflect on the broad socio-political trends impacting business today, and the potential response from business and those that govern it.
“In times of political uncertainty, boards need to understand how public and political expectations of business are evolving, and judge how to respond,” says Mala Shah-Coulon, Associate Partner, EY Corporate Governance.
