A new report from UK headhunters Watson Helsby examines and identifies the unique contribution of the corporate affairs leader and their team to the leadership of an organisation and to organisational success. Unlike other corporate functions such as finance, HR and marketing there is still no universal understanding and definition of what the corporate affairs function does, its remit, why it matters and its overall contribution to business success. “Staying On The Front Foot” is designed to provide a comprehensive set of answers to these questions.
The report also has a practical benefit for corporate affairs directors themselves, presenting an analysis of leadership capabilities necessary for them and their team to be effective in business, and in particular to be credible at the top table. These can be used as a checklist against which to measure themselves and their team.
