Hubert Joly, former chairman and CEO of Best Buy, says that now is the time for companies to get serious about operating to benefit not just shareholders but also employees, customers and broader society.  In the face of environmental crisis, racial turmoil, and rising economic inequality, he argues that leaders shouldn’t debate whether or when to embrace this new version of capitalism. They should focus on how to do it. He says this starts with having a clear purpose and ensuring that everyone in the organization connects with it and one another. It also involves offering fair pay and opportunities for advancement and working with, not against, consumers, the community, the competition. He shares how these strategies helped turn Best Buy around despite the rise of Amazon. Joly is the author of the book The Heart of Business: Leadership Principles for the Next Era of Capitalism and the HBR article “How to Lead in the Stakeholder Era.”
