Cultivating culture: What boards can and can’t do about behaviour

How individuals behave of course has a big and direct impact on any company’s success, while at the heart of the biggest reputational disasters there often lies a major cultural failing.  Yet culture remains a difficult topic for boards to get their arms around – a challenge we often see in our reviews of boards.

With this in mind, we are pleased to present our research findings on what boards can realistically be expected to do and where the limitations lie.  Our research was conducted on behalf of the Financial Reporting Council as part of its Culture Coalition project, and involved interviews and surveys of over 120 chairmen, CEOs and company secretaries.


We’ve worked with more than 160 clients. They are mainly FTSE 350 comanies – including 20 from the FTSE 100.

Helping you get it right

For us, good governance is about good performance.

Yes, compliance matters.  But our work is about helping you make sure your organisation…is led effectively by a board that adds value…is kept under control through risk management and assurance frameworks that meet your needs…and is “doing the right thing”.
