How Ben is building a better working world

“Society is demanding more of business. Responsible and sustainable business practices will be rewarded. In my work with clients, I am focused on how companies are setting out to communicate with a wider set of stakeholders on these issues. Their investments in their culture, society, their consumers, and in trustworthy and environmentally sustainable business practices are increasingly important to their corporate strategy and value. We are innovating around the use of data and analytics to help companies deliver, measure and report on all of these aspects.”
