Purpose-Driven Organisations

Helping organisations become deeply purpose- and values-driven

What is a purpose-driven organisation?

In a stressed and uncertain world, purpose-driven organisations are better able to navigate disruption, differentiate their approach, mobilise employees and get fit for a sustainable future.

Purpose as a Compass

Embedding Organisational Purpose as

the ‘North Star’; guiding

decisions and catalyzing

positive change.

Towards Sustainability

Acting in the best interests of multiple stakeholders, 

reducing negative impacts &

maximizing positive influence.

Partners in Purpose

A highly participative organisation where employees feel unified and mobilised in pursuit of purpose.


What are the benefits of becoming a purpose-driven company? 

Unilever puts it this way: ‘Brands with Purpose Grow; People with Purpose Thrive; Companies with Purpose Last’. 

There is an ever-growing body of evidence that purpose-driven companies benefit from strengthened relationships with all of their key stakeholders.


Employees who love the meaning it brings to their work; customers who love buying from a business that’s working for a better world; communities that appreciate the company’s care for their long-term health and wellbeing. 


The positive goodwill generated adds up to better returns for investors. It’s an ecosystem that thrives over the long term.  

But these benefits only accrue to companies/organisations that fully live their purpose and values every day, in everything they do.


Just communicating a purpose statement won’t cut it.
