The future is about more than technological disruption. It’s about ethics. There is no right way to do a wrong thing. Exponential technologies such as AI, robotics and cybersecurity are forcing leaders to rethink the role of ethics in our future. This is a time for change. A time for companies, countries and citizens to develop their own Ethical Purpose Statement™ to better foster diversity and inclusion, deal fairly and ethically with stakeholders, and lead the change to a more sustainable future.
LEADERSHIP – 1 in 5 employees feels pressure to compromise ethics standards according to the Global Business Ethics Survey™.
FUTURE TRENDS – 9 out of 10 organisations said they were aware of at least one instance where an artificial intelligence system had resulted in ethical issues for their business.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION – The Business Roundtable of America recently redefined the purpose statement for corporations to include ‘fostering diversity and inclusion’ and ‘dealing fairly and ethically’.
CULTURE – 86% of millennials consider it a “priority to work for a business that conducts itself ethically and responsibly”.
