What is the purpose of a supervisory board?
Simply put: to provide overview and give advice.
And, when necessary, to seek advice.
Typically, supervisory boards engage with topics such as corporate strategy, investment projects, finance and turnover, liquidity and risk management. However, people, culture and governance topics have also become increasingly important for modern-day companies.
In recent times, there has been a significant shift in how an organization’s workforce is perceived; from the bystanders of business leadership to becoming the company’s central focus.
We support supervisory board members in undertaking their joint responsibility to achieve corporate success in the areas of people, culture and governance, using a respectful, professional and qualified approach.
Control processes for board appointments
Decisions relating to the composition of the management board are directly relevant to the success of the company.
We support the supervisory board and business-owners in the design and implementation of transparent appointment processes. This, in turn, creates the basis for well-founded decisions and reduces the risk of unsatisfactory appointments.
Composition of the Supervisory Board
An efficient supervisory board team consists of different personalities who cooperate effectively with each other precisely because of this fact.
We advise the supervisory board and business-owners in evaluating the composition of their committees and design processes for professional appointments. We support supervisory board teams in recognizing and capitalizing upon the strengths of diversity.
People · Culture · Governance
A company’s workforce has become an increasingly important factor in maximising business opportunities. It has shifted from being the bystander to business leadership to becoming the company’s central focus.
We advise the supervisory board and business-owners on questions of successionplanning for the board of directors, developing contemporary people and culture strategy, as well as modern HR processes and tools.
Environment · Society · Governance
Investors and other stakeholders are increasingly demanding environmental, social and governance information from companies.
We guide supervisory board members to become qualified and informed advisers and discussion partners for the board of directors on issues of sustainable corporate and employee management.
