Ongoing debates about leadership, governance, and regulation of social media are highly relevant to any stakeholder engagement discussion for platforms like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
It is clear that there is still a significant gap between companies responding to allegations of harming human rights and actually engaging with the affected rightsholders to ensure that appropriate remedy is provided.
For companies used to thinking about stakeholder engagement as an external-facing exercise, the strength and speed of staff unrest has been a surprise. Companies in all sectors need to start regarding employees as their most significant interest group.
Companies that are not engaging investors on sustainability are missing an opportunity to attract and retain investors focused on long-term value and ESG.
