Last week saw the importance of good corporate governance within UK companies feature as a topic in columns of City A.M. and The Times; as well as The Independent highlighting the value of employee representation on boards.
As City A.M. phrased it, ‘fixing the corporate governance problem is a national necessity’, and The Times’ article, written by Commissioners of the IPPR Commission on Economic Justice, focused on the need for a focus on the long-term growth and success of British companies.
Non-Executive Directors play an important role in ensuring good corporate governance and are not just relevant to large blue chip companies, but play a vital role on the boards of many types of organisation.
In fact, if you speak to experienced board members of SMEs and start-up entrepreneurs, they will tell you, it’s never too soon to take on a non-executive director.
If your organisation, be it an SME or charity, in the public sector or a large corporate company, is considering the value which non-executive directors bring, we recommend you to get in touch with NEDonBoard as we launch a series of initiatives to champion the NED role throughout Autumn 2017.
