Escaping Short-Termism: Managing for the Long Term

Tuesday 13th October 2015, 6.30pm

Crypt of St Paul's Cathedral

There has been a consistent degree of attention placed on the need for cultural reform in the financial sector over recent years, and one of the key components of this reform is a shift away from short-term views of value, profit and success. This seminar, organised as part of an ongoing joint programme on ethical culture between St Paul's Institute and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, will explore how business models can operate more effectively and overcome the misjudgements often provided by short-term success horizons. Providing case studies of effective practice and the benefits of a long-term view not only to business and shareholders, but wider society as a whole.

How do companies create a culture and engender loyalty in organisations that increasingly 'hire and fire' depending on financial results? In complex professions such as finance and banking, many employees have become increasingly 'tribal' finding belonging in their professions more than their employers (traders, investment bankers, risk professionals). How do firms instil their culture and values among such staff whose primary loyalties lie elsewhere, and what role can professional development and qualifications play? What does a long-term culture look like and how can it best be instigated and communicated?
