Corporate culture - a thought piece on reporting

Black Sun’s latest thought piece on reporting: Corporate Culture – discusses some of the culture indicators that can currently be found in FTSE 100 annual reports and also explores what increased reporting in this area could look like going forward.

The report found that while 48% of the FTSE 100 define the values of their organisation, only 35% define their purpose. Interestingly, only 14% of the FTSE 100 directly report on culture. These figures seem set to increase in the coming years given the focus on culture by UK regulators.
