We hear it often: businesses can either operate for the bottom line or for the people…and it can feel like an impossible feat attempting to accomplish both, in balance. At a societal level, Capitalism is increasingly being rejected as a viable and sustainable business model by employees in America. In 2020, a Just Capital survey (done in partnership with The Harris Poll) engaged approximately 17,000 U.S. adults. They found that only a quarter of respondents believed that our current form of capitalism ensures the greater good of society.
For so long, Capitalism has become the justification for companies to focus on maximizing profits. Get Looped is about changing the perspective of how to maximize value by redefining the way we look at and operate from within the context of Capitalism.
It’s not that Capitalism doesn’t work or that the drive to create a highly profitable organization can’t be. Quite the contrary! It is the revision of Capitalism and the creation of a Common Vision, through the guiding principles of Get Looped and supporting partner organizations, that we foster balanced, thriving businesses by allowing all Americans to be justly rewarded for their contributions to their work and their lives.
More leaders are voicing their need to change how they are shaping and operating their organizations based on today’s needs of a society calling for massive shifts. People want purpose, equality, transparency and integrity to be a part of their everyday lives, including at work.
