Enterprise for Society – Making profits with a higher purpose

There are many opinions about the role of businesses in society. Some see them as a way for the private sector to fill gaps in public provision, while others consider their business a vehicle for social change.

Speaker at Asian Forum, Prof. David Grayson, thought leader on corporate responsibility, author, and professor at Cranfield University, United Kingdom, argues that though businesses exist to make a profit, the profits made should be geared toward a higher purpose.

With that in mind, what does it mean to be a responsible employer? Learn more about what Prof. Grayson has to say on this topic here.
