Written by Atul Vashistha

Prioritising People - Managing ESG Risk
In light of recent worker shortages and social justice movements, the power shift from employer to employee has begun. Treating employees – especially frontline and lower-wage workers – as interchangeable commodities is an unacceptable and short-sighted approach.

With proposed new disclosure requirements1 from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) making it harder for public companies to hide their workforce-related shortcomings, boards should proactively lead the drive to change.

In this article for Ethical Boardroom, Atul Vashistha, Chairman, Supply Wisdom shares his views on the importance for boards to push for the changes needed to modernise ESG risk management.
