Hidden Talent 2: Has workforce reporting improved?

Hidden Talent 2: Has workforce reporting by the FTSE 100 improved?

In April 2019 PLSA published new research, updating its previous work on corporate reporting of workforce-related issues, based on the framework set out in our stewardship toolkit from Summer 2016. 

The research was carried out on our behalf by the High Pay Centre and examined the annual reports of FTSE 100 companies to assess how well they explain their employment models and practices in relation to company strategy. 

Issues around the composition, stability, skills and capabilities and engagement levels of companies’ workforces are vital for investors to understand, given that the motivation and fulfilment levels of investee firms’ employees are a critical determinant of their long-term performance.
