How big is the disconnect between the business leaders and EHSS function in your company? How many millions are left on the table for the lack of collaboration, integration and alignment between operations and EHSS?
Senior clients are working ever harder to help their organizations unlock that value by moving from managing functional ‘outputs’ (e.g. regulatory reporting) to working across the enterprise to deliver business ‘outcomes’ (such as business continuity). Increasingly they are turning to new leadership solutions to get the job done.
When one global mining service company’s environment, health, safety and sustainability (EHSS) team first came across new chemical registration regulations they thought they were facing another set of ho-hum regulatory requirements that their bosses would rather ignore. But its leader, Simon Wade, who had recently moved from a hands-on operational role, quickly realized that it was really a $100M business continuity problem in disguise.
What Wade recognized was that the company’s latest business venture was predicated on its ability to sell chemicals as an integrated part of its service, wherever and whenever its sales teams wanted.
