The corporate card can have a home in the digital wallet thanks to collaborations and technology platforms designed for card issuers.

How To Apply Corporate Values When You Plan For M&A

Don Scales is the Global CEO of Investis Digital and co-author of the book “How to Lead a Values-Based Professional Services Firm.” 

In 2020, we’ve seen some industry leaders position themselves for long-term success by acquiring other companies. As the second half of 2020 got underway, businesses had launched eight deals of more than $10 billion in the six weeks, according to Refinitiv data. This activity is to be expected during a time of turmoil. Leaders don’t stand still during difficult times.

The resurgence in deals raises a question, though: How many will actually succeed? In fact, as I noted in my latest Forbes Councils article, most will fail. That’s because too often, business leaders involved in mergers don’t take into account their corporate values when they plan for a merger.

According to one study (via Deloitte), 54% of leaders believe that neglecting to audit nonfinancial assets such

As Diversity Training Becomes New Red Scare, Corporate Leaders Stay Mum, For Now

President Trump lobbed a firebomb into the field of corporate social responsibility on September 22, when he issued an executive order banning certain types of diversity training within the federal government and among its contractors and grant recipients. The order includes loss-of-contract and other punishments for those who disobey. It also contains an even more pernicious element that should have corporate leaders rooting for change at the Oval Office when the results of the November 3 election roll in.

The ghost of Joe McCarthy hovers over executive order on diversity training

In the wake of George Floyds murder, this summer the Black Lives Matter movement gathered renewed force. Hundreds of thousands of citizens took to the streets to advocate for equity in policing. They also exposed gaping holes in the efforts of corporate America to promote diversity.

The movement also raised awareness about the challenges faced by CEOs

Trump ban of ‘un-American’ diversity training roils corporate America


President Donald Trump looked to chip away at rival Joe Biden’s support with African-American voters Friday, telling a crowd in Atlanta “Biden doesn’t know Black Americans like I do,” and insisting Democrats will take their vote for granted. (Sept. 25)

AP Domestic

President Trump’s decision this week to expand a ban on “divisive” and “un-American” anti-racism training to federal contractors is fueling fears the White House order will deal a crippling setback to corporate efforts to increase workplace equality and address race and gender disparities.

“The biggest challenge right now is the confusion, chaos and the uncertainty of not knowing what this means,” said M.E. Hart, an attorney and diversity, equity and inclusion expert who runs training sessions for businesses and federal agencies. “My concern is that it will stop these efforts for months and may have a chilling effect on the momentum in businesses and organizations.”

SEC Modernizes Shareholder Rules, Limiting Corporate Critics’ Voices

The Securities and Exchange Commission voted today to modernize its shareholder proposal rules, raising the amount of money one needs to initially invest in a company to propose changes to it in proxy statements, a move critics say would restrain the ability of shareholders to hold corporations and CEOs accountable on a variety of issues—namely on climate change, human rights and corporate board diversity.

SEC Commissioner Jay Clayton argued today’s amendments to the shareholder proposal rules ensured that there’d be an “appropriate alignment” between the interests of shareholder proponents and all shareholders, while Commissioner Elad Roisman said the rule changes make sure anyone bringing a proposal to be included in a company’s proxy statement has a sufficient economic stake or investment interest in the corporation. 

“The only constant in our markets is the fact that they will change. It is our job as regulators to make sure our rules keep
