Ibi Eso to speak at ICSA event: Changing the narrative – Sustaining a corporate culture

Ibi Eso is to join a panel for the ICSA, The Chartered Governance Institute, webinar Changing the narrative – Sustaining a corporate culture at 12:30-13:45 on Wednesday 28 April.

You can book tickets for the session here.

Remote working and increasing economic uncertainty continue to challenge sustaining corporate culture. The effort involved in keeping staff aligned with a business mission can highlight good corporate practices, as well as governance flaws and inadequacies.

A sustainable corporate culture, including understanding and shaping corporate behaviour, is the board’s responsibility. It is imperative that company boards identify their cultural drivers and governance challenges to find new ways to engage with their employees.

ICSA webinar: Key corporate culture trends

Ibi will join a panel discussion that ICSA said will focus on:

How one in four British employees could continue working from home permanently after COVID-19;

The need to identify other key trends impacting employee engagement and changing corporate culture where necessary, and what the role of the board is in responding to these trends;

  • How remote working can continue to create new corporate structures;
  • What lessons can be learnt from organisations who have been able to successfully build new corporate cultures or change corporate culture during the crisis;
  • How boards can reinforce their organisational values and adapt their leadership styles post-pandemic;
  • How the hybrid workplace will challenge organisations in the years ahead;

Ibi Eso joins governance panel

This webinar will be hosted by Peter Swabey, policy & research director at The Chartered Governance Institute, and the panel includes:

Ibi Eso, senior governance consultant, Bridgehouse Company Secretaries;

Alison Gill, founding director and CEO, Bvalco;

Alison Horrocks, chief corporate affairs officer and Company Secretary, Inmarsat;

Fahrin Ribeiro, head of governance, GB and WE, Willis Towers Watson.

Ahead of the webinar, Ibi said: “Of course, sustaining a corporate culture is an issue which will challenge all organisations. The transition from predominantly home working to a longer term model is unprecedented. Never before have so many companies simultaneously had to decide what their structure will look like and how their relationship with their staff will be reimagined going forwards. As a result, businesses need to plan the return to work carefully, considerately and with what is best for both their staff and their business in mind.”
