Corporate governance is the structure of rules, practices, and policies that underpin how you direct and manage your company, which is often not your top priority. Corporate governance is a privilege for mature businesses that have the luxury of critical mass and the necessary staff to document, rather than just do. 

However, if you are a business founder, in the early stages, looking to grow - adhering to corporate governance could help you grow more effectively by; 

  • Driving commercial accountability for hiring across the company, ensuring you get the right worker, in the right job, at the right time. 
  • Providing a formal framework for managing the disputes arising from a growing labour force, without disrupting operations. 
  • Giving you the tools to balance continuity and efficiency across your increasingly complex supply chain. 
  • Presenting your company and its whole value chain in the best possible light to the large, multinational, and sustainability-focused businesses with whom you want to partner. 

Our partner UBS will be exploring why corporate governance can be a worthwhile early investment for founders, in a three-part series. Today’s report highlights how corporate governance can help you scale your business, through two main channels: your people and your supply chain.
