Corporate Secretary and IR Magazine are pleased to announce the launch of new special report Working together: How governance and IR teams tackle key challenges.
Companies are increasingly seeing the value in having their governance, legal and corporate secretary teams work closely with their colleagues in investor relations. Where these groups collaborate to share expertise and different perspectives, they can help develop and implement a more coherent and effective narrative for the company. But careful thought must be given to finding the right way to get the most out of this coordination.
In researching this report, we spoke with IR and governance/legal professionals at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Regions Financial Corporation and Salesforce.com about the different ways they approach working together on three of the most important interactions with investors: the proxy statement and AGM, shareholder engagement and ESG reporting. We also spoke with experts at Georgeson and Computershare to gain their insight on industry best practices.
