Joe Marasco Published on December 15, We are seeing a renaissance of interest in culture and values in business these days 1which I view as another example of nature abhorring a vacuum: Culture and values are coming into focus now because we simply haven't given them much consideration in recent times. While revelations about errant companies and company officers continue to multiply, those who have hewn to the true path seem to be forgotten. It's always that way:
Choose your location to get a site experience tailored for you. Many organizations do a superficial job of articulating why they exist, settling for vision-setting exercises that lead to little more than catchy slogans and posters.
Some craft purpose statements that are so generic they could apply to just about any company. But even among organizations that articulate their purpose effectively, many are guilty of going no further. They do almost nothing to integrate purpose into the day-to-day experiences of their employees and customers.
Despite the hype, the organization remains unchanged. Organizations with surface purpose realize none of the benefits of authentic purpose: And they may miss out on a fundamental element of purpose: Realizing purpose with the power to transform requires a different approach.
From our work with many leaders and organizations over the years, we have developed and honed a methodology for discovering, articulating, activating, and embedding true purpose.
In this report, we begin by examining why purpose is attracting so much attention. We then clarify what purpose is.
Finally, we present the four steps that organizations should follow to bring purpose to life—to realize the kind of purpose that will anchor and guide them through challenging circumstances and changing times.
Why All the Buzz Now? To suggest that companies have historically lacked purpose would be disingenuous. We have one life, and most of us spend most of our waking hours working in an organization.
So, why the intense interest lately? We see five major reasons: First and foremost, studies show that purpose-driven organizations perform better. Our own in-depth analysis of the link between purpose and performance revealed that a deeply ingrained purpose correlates strongly with ten-year total shareholder return.
When employees embrace purpose—when the organization lives it, rather than just proclaims it—business results follow. When organizations view purpose as instrumental to their success and integral to their corporate social responsibility, instead of as a charitable or philanthropic effort, the outcome is a virtuous cycle of business performance and community impact.
We surveyed the leaders, employees, and customers of 50 companies in three major sectors: So, purpose does indeed pay—and it does so over the long term. In recent years, more and more leaders have declared their commitment to deliver on the triple bottom line—people, planet, and profit.
Attracting, engaging, and inspiring employees, along with demonstrating responsibility to the community and committing to sustainable environmental practices, have become as important as generating profits.
In addition, leaders are increasingly feeling a personal need to have a positive impact and legacy.Mr. Ratan Tata brought in a culture where people tried doing things better than what was being done. but as an Indian Institution with value systems in place.
