Company pulse 2019

In 2019, CEDA will take the pulse of Australian business, to better understand community expectations of business; and the challenges facing business leaders.
In 2018, CEDA commissioned its first ever nation-wide survey of community attitudes to economic growth and development. In 2019, CEDA will take the pulse of Australian business in our inaugural Company Pulse: a nationwide survey of the general public and business leaders. 

Company Pulse seeks to better understand community expectations of business; and the challenges facing business leaders as they seek to sustain business performance and respond to changing community expectations.
 
The decline of community trust in business has been much talked about. Rebuilding trust will be difficult without understanding the expectations that underpin trust, and how and where those expectations intersect with strategic business priorities.
 
Areas that will be explored in our report of the survey’s results include:
  • priorities for large companies
  • social licence to operate;
  • whether business leaders should speak out on economic, environmental and social issues;
  • expectations around honest and ethical behaviour from large companies;
  • how well large companies are performing across a range of areas such as health and safety, looking after customers, environmental impact, employment, tax contributions, shareholder returns and treatment of business suppliers;
  • the relative importance of company, economic, social and environmental performance
  • business responsibilities and obligations to employees, shareholders, customers, suppliers, local communities and governments.

Company Pulse research release events 

This report will be launched in September, with events following in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
