Proactive engagement: Opportunity to build stronger relationships
On the board’s agenda | September 2015
Shareholders need information that enables them to understand an organization’s governance policies, performance, business objectives, and key risks. Good engagement practices with shareholders not only strengthens the trust and credibility with the company by keeping them informed, it also provides the board valuable feedback about shareholders priorities and concerns.
In this issue
Abe Friedman, founder and managing partner at CamberView Partners and Deb DeHaas, National Partner, US Center for Governance, Deloitte LLP, lend their perspective on how companies can proactively engage shareholders to help build stronger relationships. Insights are offered on which shareholders to engage and when, as well as the importance of the approach in doing so.
