Please note that the language spoken is Dutch.
The Supervisory Board and Corporate Social Responsibility
In essence, the law assigns the Supervisory Board (RvC) a supervisory and advisory role. In fulfilling these tasks, the RvC must also focus on the interests of the company and its associated stakeholders. Nowadays, companies are expected to commit to so-called corporate social responsibility (CSR). This means that the company’s valuation largely depends on the influence it exerts, including on the people within the organization. This also relates to the role of the RvC. To what extent is the RvC responsible for a preventive approach to misconduct.
What is being discussed?
Dennis has written an article on the Supervisory Board as a Governance VAR in addressing workplace misconduct. The role of the RvC is actually somewhat understated in this entire field. In this podcast, we discuss the role of the RvC, misconduct, good employership, the resources available to the RvC, and whether they can potentially be held responsible for wrongdoing.
