Welcome to the new business world where purpose talks over money. Tune into topic-focused discussions with the global innovators & vanguards who are shaking up the purpose-driven business scene. Host Izzy Ahrbeck sits down with business leaders to discuss where they started, how they got there and, of course, what’s driving them forward – all in the name of creating a more ethical world. Each episode spotlights, not one, but multiple companies focused on one business element. Every episode is jam-packed with insights and features topics such as brand activism, giveback models, open hiring practices, transparent supply chains and more. Released monthly.
All in a Day’s Work: Inclusive & Open Hiring
The hiring process is a hotspot for implicit bias. There are many barriers such as justice involvement, migration backgrounds, disabilities, and language skills that hold people back from the workforce. In this episode, we talk to four companies who have implemented an inclusive or open hiring model to widen their talent pool and give routinely sidelined groups an actual chance to participate in the labour market.
The Product That Keeps on Giving: Giveback Models
In this episode, we travel from Berlin to Bwindi and talk to four companies who have embedded a giveback element into their daily operations, not just as a sales tactic or a “purposewashing” campaign, but as a genuine vehicle to drive real change.
Introducing: Purpose Talks
Purpose Talks sets the stage for the new business world where purpose talks over money. Out on May 20th.
Well Rounded Edutainment
Hey I know that you only have one episode up and this is super new, but so far so good. I love how specific the focus of the podcast is (and relevant and necessary). The show is cut together in a fresh way—blending interviews around one topic to get at multiple points of view about one question, then mixing it up with comedic audio clips and a strong narrator guiding you through the ideas. Nicely done, look forward to seeing more.
