Inclusive Growth & Profits with Purpose: New Management Paradigm

The policy makers of several nations have been expressing the concern that the benefit of economic growth not being equally distributed among all sections of the society. Inclusive growth is the pace and the pattern of economic growth. It is more of productive employment and increasing incomes of excluded groups.  Inclusive growth allows people to “contribute to and benefit from economic growth”. Inclusive growth includes growth of economy that reduces poverty and creates employment opportunities, access to essential services in health and education especially for the poor, equality of opportunity, empowerment through education and skill development, environmental sustainability, recognition of women’s agency and good governance. Towards the goal of achieving inclusive growth the corporate sector need to revisit and say that sustainable strategies that recognize corporates have purpose and making money by doing good things.   In the words of Ratan Tata “purpose is a spiritual and moral call to action; it is what a person or company stands for”.  It is more of investing in socially inclusive businesses, innovative business models to reach the bottom of the pyramid and investing in environmentally beneficial technologies.   Thus the conference theme is two sides of the same coin inclusive growth and profits with purpose.
