Institutes issue combined call for corporate action
CIMA joined forces with four other leading chartered institutes recently for a round-table discussion on the vital role that professional bodies play in helping to stimulate business growth and build a sustainable economy.
Joining CIMA around the table were the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development; the Chartered Institute of Marketing; the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply; and the Chartered Management Institute.
Their discussion resulted in a combined call to action for British businesses in three areas designed to help achieve a sustainable economy.
This urged businesses to:
- Invest in people to create professionals for both today and the future.
- Champion and embed industry-approved professional standards, ethics and codes of practice within their corporate cultures and at all levels of the organisation.
- Engage with professional bodies that can provide support, thought leadership and guidance in line with best practice and ethical standards across industry.
The main messages arising from the round-table discussion have been collated into a document entitled “The raconteur report – business confidence & growth”, which was featured in The Times in September.
