What is Shared Value?

www opzioni binarie demo Shared value is defined as policies and practices that enhance the competitiveness of companies while improving social and environmental conditions in the regions where they operate. It is a business strategy focused on companies creating measurable economic benefit by identifying and addressing social problems that intersect with their business. To qualify as shared value, there must be an identifiable economic benefit to the company as well as measurable impact on a social or environmental issue.

opzioni binarie piu sicure The shared value concept was defined in ‘Creating Shared Value’, an article by Prof Michael Porter and Mark Kramer in the Harvard Business Review (January/February 2011). The framework creates 
new opportunities for companies, civil society organisations, and governments to leverage the power of market-based competition in addressing social problems, and has grown rapidly from
a global idea to a form of business practicing at its best, adopted by leading global and Australasian companies.

the reputation of business were under siege. The concept acknowledges the importance of business, with its capital, market access, scale and capacity for innovation, and its capability of having a meaningful impact on societal problems.

  • Creating new products and services for existing or new markets based on collaboration with customers and community stakeholders to understand societal needs.
  • Example: Life insurance company AIA Australia’s Vitality program targets preventative health problems by incentivising customers to live a healthy lifestyle through a rewards program and lower premiums. Hence creating a healthier customer base and lowering claims costs for the company.

  • Working with suppliers and internal/external stakeholders to improve processes, quality, sustainability, productivity, social outcomes and competitive advantage.
  • Example: NAB created NAB Assist, incentivising and training all collections employees to recognise, manage, and proactively assist customers in financial hardship, therefore significantly reducing loan defaults and costs for the bank, and increasing the number of clients who seek advise before a collections event.

  • Facilitating the clustering and sustainable development of the market and geographic environments in which the company operates.
  • Example: Bendigo and Adelaide Bank created their Community Bank model, supporting self-selecting communities to run their own branches as franchises, leveraging the bank’s financial services, infrastructure and expertise, whilst reinvesting portions of the revenue into the community to drive long term growth.

Shared value is not:

  • Sharing the value already created
  • Personal values
  • Employee engagement
  • Corporate value systems (although it may inform them)
  • Balancing stakeholder interests (community or stakeholder engagement)

Shared value is not philanthropy or corporate social responsibility (CSR), because in these cases an organisation’s social contributions are not necessarily intrinsic to business value.

How is shared value different from CSR?

Shared value places societal problems at the core of business objectives. In some instances corporate social responsibility has created shared value. However, the hallmarks of CSR practice have become:

  • A sense of obligation to ‘give back’
  • A focus on reporting to demonstrate good corporate citizenship
  • Immediate or medium term public relations outcomes
  • Investment in social programs that are viewed as important to reputation but not core to growth strategy
  • Still pursuing profit with the spirit of the law and ethical norms, restraining certain activity
