2015/16 Harvey Nash Board Practice: The changing shape of Non-Executives
We’re now in the second year of our Board Research project to investigate how the role of Non-Executives is changing, driven by greater emphasis on governance, risk, shareholder value, public opinion, market dynamics and so on.
If you are a Non-Executive or Chair and have not done so already, we invite you to participate in our research and we will share the insights and findings with you – https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NonExec2015
Last year our findings included:
- There is a stark mismatch between the skill sets on boards and the challenges organisations face – Over half of the respondents thought digital, talent management and corporate reputation / brand were increasingly important issues but less than one in ten board members came from these backgrounds. Board diversity is not just about gender or ethnicity but diversity of thought.
- The influence of the old boys’ network may be fading – Two thirds of respondents went through a formal appointment process and were unknown to the organisation. However, 79 per cent of the women that responded went through a formal recruitment process compared to just 57 per cent of men, so there is still work to be done.
We will publish the findings in an exclusive Harvey Nash Board Practice report which will provide a unique, contemporary snapshot of life on Boards and how it has changed.
We look forward to your contribution.
