Investing in SocietyCECP’s recently launched and updated compendium of data, research, and case studies illustrates innovations in corporate efforts to solve the world’s most pressing problems. Divided into five sections – Priorities, Performance, People, Planet, and Policies – the collection of insights offers a far-reaching assessment of what leading companies are doing in each of the five focus areas.

In the People section, CECP asks, “How can large corporations maximize societal impact and outcomes through employee engagement and purpose?"
