Workshop on Measuring Business Impacts on People’s Well-being, with OECD

Logos Workshop OCDE Feb 2017

Totem Workshop OCDE - SnO

This workshop will discuss the foundations to measuring business’ impacts on well-being through the creation of new measurement standards in close collaboration with the business sector, and as part of existing reporting practices that already transcend economic performance.

Over the past few years the OECD has developed a series of indicators enabling governments to design policies for improving well-being in all the important areas of life (income, health, education, security, environment, etc.). By behaving responsibly, businesses can also play a vital role in most of these areas and can bring a strong contribution to sustainable development, as highlighted by the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

While an increasing number of actors are looking at how companies impact on well-being and create value beyond financial wealth, we are still lacking specific guidance on how to accurately measure such impacts. As a result, statistical evidence on business’ contribution to well-being is scattered and firms’ performances on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and Responsible Business Conduct (RBC) issues remain hard to benchmark.

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the foundations to measuring business’ impacts on well-being through the creation of new measurement standards in close collaboration with the business sector and as part of existing reporting practices that already transcend economic performance.

The Workshop is organised in collaboration with the OECD, the Society & Organizations (SnO) Center of HEC Paris, the Humanistic Management Network, Fordham University and is part of the Leading for Well-Being Initiative, an international coalition of organisations, scholars, business people, media experts, and policy makers seeking to integrate the emerging practice of well-being with more sustainable practices at the corporate, community and policy levels.

Rodolphe Durand, professor of Strategy & Business Policy, Frédéric Dalsace, assistant professor of Marketing and Nicola Dragonetti, researcher, from HEC Paris, will introduce and speak during the conference.
