Looking outside of your business to support within
That voice often comes from a NED or independent chairperson who is able to offer both specific sector expertise and wider business experience. It is no surprise to us that two Peach 20/20 Award Winners, Caravan & Turtle Bay, benefit from the involvement of NED of the Year, Jane O’Riordan.
Support with long-term strategy, vision and planning is an obvious benefit but also highlighting where improvement can be made across the full breadth of operations not just those driving the bottom line. This is especially true when it comes to issues such as DE&I or sustainability which may not feature as high on the agenda day to day; but are non-negotiables for your customers and teams.
To help the industry understand the benefits of listening to theses individuals COREcruitment commissioned a survey with the collaboration of over one hundred of their NED contacts. This specific survey was aimed at capturing thoughts and opinions on various aspects of non-executive directorship, such as commitment, board effectiveness, recruitment, diversity & inclusion.
The full report can be found here, and is good starting point to discover the skillsets and outlooks that NED’s have to the potential benefit of your organisation.
