How ESG Reports Can Help With Recruitment and Retention

We’re facing a shortage of accountants and the “great resignation” is putting the employee in a position of power in deciding whether to stay with a current employer or jump to another employer. When recruiting and retaining employees, how do organizations differentiate themselves as an employer of choice? The answer: ESG reports. No, we’re not talking about the big attestations reports that the SEC is requiring, but a much simpler version of the ESG report(s) that small and mid-sized organizations can use to show their commitment to the environment, the communities they are in, and making more holistic business decisions. 

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the five domains of the SASB framework for ESG reports
  • Demonstrate how better business practices can be mapped to the SASB framework
  • Identify the benefits of applying ESG Reports to recruiting and retention activities
