[summary] =>

    In this episode of Across the Board, I visit with Mike Volkov, founder and CEO of the Volkov Law Group. We take a deep dive into the Business Roundtable’s Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation and consider the Board’s role in moving towards the goals articulated in the Statement.   

    In August, the Business Roundtable announced the release of the Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation (The Statement). The new Statement was signed by 181 Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) who committed to lead their companies for the benefit of all stakeholders – customers, employees, suppliers, communities and shareholders. In full, it stated:

    Americans deserve an economy that allows each person to succeed through hard work and creativity and to lead a life of meaning and dignity. We believe the free-market system is the best means of generating good jobs, a strong and sustainable economy, innovation, a healthy environment and economic opportunity for all.

    Businesses play a vital role in the economy by creating jobs, fostering innovation and providing essential goods and services. Businesses make and sell consumer products; manufacture equipment and vehicles; support the national defense; grow and produce food; provide health care; generate and deliver energy; and offer financial, communications and other services that underpin economic growth.

     While each of our individual companies serves its own corporate purpose, we share a fundamental commitment to all of our stakeholders. We commit to: 

    Delivering value to our customers. We will further the tradition of American companies leading the way in meeting or exceeding customer expectations.Investing in our employees. This starts with compensating them fairly and providing important benefits. It also includes supporting them through training and education that help develop new skills for a rapidly changing world. We foster diversity and inclusion, dignity and respect.Dealing fairly and ethically with our suppliers. We are dedicated to serving as good partners to the other companies, large and small, that help us meet our missions.Supporting the communities in which we work. We respect the people in our communities and protect the environment by embracing sustainable practices across our businesses.Generating long-term value for shareholders, who provide the capital that allows companies to invest, grow and innovate. We are committed to transparency and effective engagement with shareholders. Each of our stakeholders is essential. We commit to deliver value to all of them, for the future success of our companies, our communities and our country.

    Over this special 5-part podcast series, I have visited with David Greenberg, Special Advisor at LRN. We took a deep dive into the LRN White Paper entitled, “What’s the Tone at the Very Top: Board and Compliance: The Role of Boards in Overseeing Corporate Ethics & Compliance”. In this podcast series we explore the white paper in depth and provide the Chief Compliance Officer and compliance practitioner with succinct and practical tips for educating, dealing with and reporting to a Board of Directors. In this fifth and final episode, we look at the road ahead. The White Paper stated, “Over time, the gulf between CECOs and boards should be bridgeable. We believe that that bridge should be built quickly. The sooner that CECOs have the board’s ear – and that directors are fully aware of what CECOs and the initiatives they lead can bring to the table –the stronger and more resilient their companies will be.

    Some of the highlights from the podcast include:What practical steps should be taken to engage the board more actively and effectively in ethics and compliance oversight?More time, higher priority, stronger signals from boards in ethics and compliance oversight.Boards need to question whether ethics and compliance are genuinely integral to business operations.Elevate the CECO and establish direct and confidential reporting lines?What lays on the road ahead?Check out the LRN White Paper What’s the Tone at the Very Top: Board and Compliance: the Role of Boards in Overseeing Corporate Ethics & Complianceby clicking here.

Show me.’ Ø  Why should a Board be concerned about metrics around culture?Ø  What measures should a Board employ for culture and ethics? Check out the LRN White Paper What’s the Tone at the Very Top: Board and Compliance: the Role of Boards in Overseeing Corporate Ethics & Complianceby clicking here.

In Episode 3, we consider many CECO’s concern that Boards do not dedicate sufficient time and priority to compliance nor go into sufficient depth into compliance programs and potential outcomes . Some of the highlights from the podcast include:Why don’t Boards put in more time around E&C programs?Why is compliance often the last item on the Board agenda and equally as often, left off for later?CECOs want to be challenged by their Boards but often are not.Does your Board have a compliance game plan?Why don’t BODs go deeper into E&C programs?

In this podcast series we explore the white paper in depth and provide the Chief Compliance Officer and compliance practitioner with succinct and practical tips for educating, dealing with and reporting to a Board of Directors. In Episode 1 we introduce the topic of what’s the tone at the very top of your organization. Some of the highlights from the podcast include: Ø  What’s the role of the Board around compliance and ethics?Ø  Why is it important for the Board to actively oversee a C&E program?Ø  What is the biggest disconnect between the BOD and the compliance function?Ø  Board members should think of compliance as beyond FCPA and Sarbanes-Oxley, yet there understanding is members’ fuzzy at best. Ø  Board members understand what auditors do, but they often do not understand compliance enough to ask intelligent questions.” Check out the LRN White Paper What’s the Tone at the Very Top: Board and Compliance: the Role of Boards in Overseeing Corporate Ethics & Complianceby clicking here.

    I recently had the chance to visit with Rakhi Kumar, Senior Managing Director, Head of ESG Investments and Asset Stewardship, at State Street Global Advisors. We discussed the firm’s recent initiative around corporate culture and Board of Director engagement on this issue. State Street Global Advisors recently released a Letter from its President and Chief Executive Officer, Cyrus Taraporevala, in which he called upon corporate Boards to place a greater emphasis on corporate culture, which State Street Global Advisors says is a top asset stewardship engagement priority for the asset manager in 2019. But more than simply laying out the problem around Board’s assessing and monitoring corporate culture, State Street Global Advisors laid out a Framework for Boards to do so with their recently released Aligning Corporate Culture with Long-Term Strategy. We considered this and much more in this podcast. Some of the highlights include: Why should corporations align culture with long term strategy;What is corporate culture? Why is there growing regulatory and investor interest in corporate culture?What is the Board’s role in assessing and monitoring corporate culture?What is a Framework for doing so? For additional reading on my interview with Rakhi Kumar and State Street Global Advisor’sFramework for Aligning Corporate Culture with Long-Term Strategy, see the White Paper, Boards and Corporate Culture: SSGA Framework available through Corporate Compliance Insights
