How to be a purpose-driven organization?

Publish date:

Tune in to our podcast as we discuss why an organization’s purpose is about the positive impact a business adds to the world beyond its profit.

A statement of purpose is a great start. But how do you truly bring that purpose to life across your organization and beyond? What is purpose? Why does it matter?

Join Capgemini Invent’s Claudia Crummenerl as she invites Laura Quinn and Alaina Crystal to explore what it means to be a purpose-led organization. These two leading exponents of purpose describe how it’s about using the power of your organization to be a real influencer on issues that matter.

They acknowledge that ensuring your organization purpose is authentic isn’t easy. So, which companies are getting it right — and who recently got it very wrong with a misguided campaign that backfired?

Organizational purpose is more than marketing or communication. It is what your organization stands for; it’s how you change from within to achieve something beyond profit, something life-affirming for your employees and your customers. And you have to write a compelling narrative, one that tells the story of your purpose and illustrates how your organization lives and breathes it.

The purpose momentum is growing. Are you ready for it? Listen to our podcast to find out what it means for your employees, customers, operations, supply chain, and more.
