What Society Thinks
Main street's mood warms for Directors, Cools for CEOs
Produced by NACD Directorship and Deloitte LLP, in conjunction with Korn/Ferry International, What Society Thinks (About Boards and Business) reveals an improvement in how directors are perceived by a cross-section of America. The survey polled a cross-section of America, from board directors, C-suite members, and senior management to academia, journalists, financial analysts, policy makers and main street citizens. Now in its third edition, this year’s survey may reflect the visibility of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and what some view as an improvement in the economy.
This article reviews the survey findings and features perspectives from Henry Ristuccia, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and Global Leader Governance, Risk and Compliance Services and Maureen Errity, Director, Center for Corporate Governance, Deloitte LLP on board perception with regard to credibility, effectiveness, regulation and risk oversight.
