Confidence — it fuels business investments, innovation, and long-term growth. However, the current climate of uncertainty has greatly diminished that confidence slowing economic recovery.

2014: Culture of purpose

Building business confidence; driving growth

For the past three years, Renjen has commissioned the Deloitte Core Beliefs & Culture Survey. The 2014 survey found that focusing on purpose rather than profits builds business confidence and drives investment. This is a critical finding — and underscores the significant impact a “culture of purpose” can play in fostering a thriving community.

An array of key indicators shows an economy of fits and starts. Everything from hiring to business inventories is up one month and down the next. As a result, many businesses continue to sit on excess capital rather than put it to productive use. But not all businesses. Those committed to creating meaningful impact for all stakeholders (including clients, employees, and communities) foster strong cultures of purpose. This sense of purpose inspires confidence among leaders and stakeholders alike — and can lead to a competitive advantage in a time of economic volatility.
