“We’re entering an era in which every single company has to go from self-protective, “check-the-box” compliance to a long-term focus on ethics, values and compliance.” Brilliant post by Patrick Quinlan (Founder and CEO, Convercent). Definitely we remember this year as a year of corporate scandals. And it’s not only about sexual harassment and discrimination at Uber or ‘dragging’ incident at United’s - the problem is much more widespread (you can read more stuff about it here https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/jul/09/silicon-valley-sexual-harassment-women-speak-up ). Patrick underlines that strong ethics and core values are no longer a “nice to have,” but a necessity. And it’s hard not to agree with him.
Have a great day!
