executives are under intense pressure from traditional constituencies, including
the financial markets, customers, suppliers and their own people. Now however,
more and more time is being spent with regulators, prosecutors, legislators, the
press, various communities and various special interest groups.
can assist CEOs to build social capital so that if and when the company runs
into the “Tylenol crisis” it has a positive reservoir that it can draw from.
@WEBO's founders have been
providing organic and consulting services for over 30 years to companies such as
Sun Microsystems, Apple Computer, Matrix.Net and others. Our
experience shows that executives not conversant with Quality or Continuous
Improvement initiatives tend to view these as a waste of time. The
Japanese auto manufacturers have shown Detroit how dangerous this line of
thinking may be. Similarly, Social Capital initiatives are often viewed in
the same light. As the Fast Company's 2005Social Capitalist Awards
issue may say " pushing humanity's path
upward is simply a matter of conviction, and a function of collective will to
believe that each day the world can be a better place"
Who can benefit from
initiatives aimed at building social capital? If your company has not
filed for bankruptcy, then it is an excellent candidate!
What industries are better
suited for social capital initiatives? In general, the more change the
industry experiences, the more social capital needed.
As defined by the Fast Company, a social capitalist is an organization that does
more than just make a difference: It must also understand the system that
creates the social problems it addresses, and have a clear theory of why its
efforts will transform that system.
