  • ESG and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging – with Andaye Hill-Espinoza and Alfredo Mendez

    5 GIU 2023 · A core component of the ESG program in any organization is diversity, equity and inclusion. Different organizations take different approaches to DEI, or DEIB. There is no one way to be a leader. But what does matter is consistency and commitment, particularly the concepts around diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, and how they continue to evolve. Such a commitment is especially vital given the ongoing war for talent and the need to attract and retain people to your organization. In this episode, we talk with Andaye Hill-Espinoza and Alfredo Mendez, two leaders in our enterprise who offer some highly informative insights on DEIB and how board members and executives need to understand its long-term value. Andaye is an associate director with Protiviti and a leader in the firm's ESG Center of Excellence and DEI programs. Alf is vice president, DEI and community for Robert Half, parent company of Protiviti. For more information on Protiviti’s ESG and Sustainability programs, visit Protiviti.com/ESG.

Organizations – and more importantly, their customers and clients – are seeking more transparent, secure and responsible supply chains.

They share their guidance for directors and C-suite leaders on how to navigate this often-complex challenge.

  • The Board’s Role in Building a Culture of Sustainability - with Fran Maxwell and Kim Lanier

    28 GIU 2022 · Corporate culture, once a rather squishy, hard-to-define concept for organizations, increasingly is a top-of-mind concern for leaders looking to create a desirable workplace for innovation and one where employees who have many choices want to remain long-term. The challenges are especially acute amid the current war for talent and the need to attract and retain the best people. And part of building a strong culture is focusing on sustainability – an issue of particular interest to multigenerations of workers who have varied interests and concerns, including those related to ESG, human rights and climate change. In this episode of Board Perspectives, we talk with Protiviti’s Fran Maxwell and Kim Lanier about the board’s role in building a culture of sustainability.

  • Building Sustainable Operations and Supply Chains - with Beverly Norman-Cooper and Tony Abel

    7 APR 2022 · It should come as no surprise that, according to research from Protiviti, ESG metrics and measurement are among the top priorities for CFOs and finance teams to address, and a majority are substantially increasing the focus on and frequency of their ESG reporting. A key part of these efforts must be building sustainable operations and supply chains. But this only scratches the surface. Board members today are looking for deeper insights into the organization’s ESG footprint. In this podcast, our conversation with Beverly Norman-Cooper, Chief Strategist with Reimagining Economic Regeneration Strategies, and Protiviti’s Tony Abel will inform you of key ESG considerations in business operations and supply chains, and also help you formulate the right questions to pose to management to understand clearly the organization’s strategy and policies in these areas. One particular takeaway from this discussion stands out. Building sustainable operations and supply chains should be approached as a business strategy. It’s not just about a commitment to being green or being socially responsible – rather, this should be considered and managed like a business strategy, similar to any other critical enterprisewide initiative in the organization. These areas warrant close and frequent consideration by the board. Beverly, in her current role with Reimagining Economic Regeneration Strategies, helps companies harness supply chain purchasing to create good jobs, increase community wealth, and accelerate the economic, social, and physical regeneration of under-resourced communities. She previously led supplier diversity and environmentally preferable sourcing for a major healthcare organization. Over three years, she took the organization from $1.3 billion in annual diverse spend to more than $2.3 billion in annual spend. Tony is a Managing Director with the Business Performance Improvement solution at Protiviti. He is a leader with the firm’s Supply Chain and Procurement Practice and leads Protiviti’s Manufacturing, Supply Chain and Circular Economy ESG Working group. Tony has more than two decades of experience as a procurement and supply chain leader within companies, management consulting and outsourcing environments across a variety of industries.
