Even though publicly quoted companies first sought funding through stock exchanges in the 17th century, the concept of Investor Relations (IR) – as a crucial part of this process – is a relatively modern discipline: the first actual IR department did not emerge until the 1950’s.

Nowadays, the importance of investor relations cannot be overstated – in Brazil, Egypt and Bulgaria, companies are mandated by law to have an IR function – and it is no coincidence that the most successful, global giants consistently lead the field in ‘best practice’ awards: the 2018 winner – as voted for by the IR Society – was Easyjet. Morrisons and Tesco were also shortlisted.

There are five key reasons why maintaining good investor relations is critical to your success:

Managing your business finances can be time consuming and stressful, especially if you are not well organised. When there are other interesting things to do getting to grips with your finance processes may seem a bit dull.  The good news is that it doesn’t have to be difficult, time consuming, or boring. All you need are the right tools with the right automation!

Addiction in the workplace can present significant challenges for employers and specific instances of drug or alcohol use can present health and safety risks, and serious conduct issues.

Use of drugs or alcohol is frequently related to other health issues, both physical and mental, which is a further reason the issue needs to be dealt with sensitively by employers.

By Aldous Hicks, CEO and Co-founder of ReCircle Recycling Ltd

Recycling is a growth industry.  It is projected that by 2020 the global market will reach £30bn.  This is nearly double the size in 2015 when it was £18bn.

Despite the growth of the industry and many good intentions, the true value of recyclable materials is not being realized. Cross-contamination of plastics and dirty packaging means that over half the items going into the recycling bin aren’t recycled.

Use of alcohol and/or drugs may not be perceived as a significant risk factor in some organizations but it should always be considered good governance in any company to undertake a Risk Assessment to identify any such potential organisational vulnerability.

Human frailty is always with us. But Alcohol and Drug problems may not immediately appear to head the list of significant risks to an organisation – however they may be the trigger for a major economic, accident- or safety-related event. It is often the accumulation of small factors and their interaction that results in a calamity.

Here are the three elements that should be the cornerstones of any corporate alcohol and drug strategy:

Times are changing, consumerism is dying, and we are entering a world with a new movement of individuals whom I call ‘post-consumers’.

Who Are the Post-Consumers?

Post-consumerism will be driven by younger Millennials and Generation Z – the generation that’s growing up now. Post-consumers will take great offence by the very notion that they might be taking more than they give. They will choose to make eco-friendly buying decisions, to demand to know the supply chain provenance of their food and their clothes and will insist on buying goods from companies that refuse to engage in unsustainable practices such as planned obsolescence. They will be sustainers rather than consumers, tribes rather than crowds, stakeholders rather than customers. Post-consumers will trust the word of influencers and friends rather than advertising/marketing.

What do organizations need to do to appeal to this new audience and turn them into investors?

If you want to get away from the city and start working from your dream location, here is what you need to think about to make the dream come true.

Getting Connected

You’ll need to connect to the internet. If your house is on the edge of the beach and the WiFi reaches the beach, then great. If not, you’ll need a 4G connection and be able to tether via your phone.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is widely talked about, but what is it and can it help improve your business telecoms)?

Let’s start by defining AI: Artificial intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems. These processes include learning (the acquisition of information and rules for using the information), reasoning (using rules to reach approximate or definite conclusions) and self-correction.

So, if AI is about getting machines to think like humans, there will many ways that AI can help your business, particularly with communications. Here are five key ways in which we believe AI can help your business.

Receiving a poor review online or having a competitor bad-mouth you is one thing and usually blows over fairly quickly with careful handling.

However, publishing lies in the press or media is something else altogether. And this includes Social Media. The legal term is defamation. Whether it be in writing (libel) or made verbally (slander), such comments that damage or are likely to damage another individual may give rise to court action.

Since 2013, when the new Defamation Act came into force, the threshold for bringing such an action has been raised. A potential claimant now has to prove that ‘serious harm’ has been caused and, in the case of a profit-making business, ‘serious financial loss’.

It’s most important that before going to court, that the claimant (you, if you are taking the person who has defamed you to court) should comply with the Civil Procedure Rules (the rules that are followed by the courts and parties in civil court proceedings). This means that s/he must follow ‘pre-action protocols for defamation’.

By David Solomon, co-founder of Blueprints

Let’s face it, history has a habit of looking unfavorably towards individuals and corporations who don’t hold up to the scrutiny of modern morality. This is evidenced by the demonization of all slave traders, colonizers and sexual exploiters of history, who often were simply doing what was ‘perfectly legal’ in their period of history.

It’s hard to say how history will look back at us now, but the signs are there. Our descendants will be astounded by our generation’s wasteful nature, horrified that we’re so destructive to our own planet, that we didn’t act on climate change, that we were so overtly misogynistic and racist. And with history moving faster than ever before, I believe we will look back with disbelief in as little as a decade.

So what can we do to make sure we are on the right side of history, especially when ethical moorings will change as soon as 2030?
