Areas of Focus
Alongside proper and necessary governance, organisations and their boards are increasingly facing complex challenges. The need for effective and excellent quality boards is even more vital for success.
FTSE 350 companies are now required under the Governance Code to seek external evaluations on a regular cycle. Listed companies outside the FTSE 350 are still strongly encouraged to undergo evaluations. In this very competitive environment, businesses’ boards need to be at peak performance.
The new Charity Governance Code recommends evaluations for larger charities and, in an era of increasing pressure on standards and efficacy, all charities can benefit from this. This is a testing time for charities and they need to rise to that challenge.
Public Service Industries (eg Housing Associations, Academy Trusts)
All bodies responsible for large amounts of public funds in a changing political climate can benefit from an external evaluation to ensure the highest standards of governance and performance are met.
It is sometimes difficult for larger private companies to be confident that they are best equipped and prepared for achieving their objectives. An independent evaluation can help them ensure they are meeting their goals as well as building successful and resilient businesses.
