Shared value defines a new role for business in helping to overcome the global education and unemployment crisis. By aligning profit with purpose, companies can become essential partners for schools, nonprofits, and governments while simultaneously discovering new ways to increase their productivity, strengthen industry clusters, and expand their markets.

Top Takeaways

  1. All companies can create shared value in education, but their opportunities to do so depend on their specific needs and capabilities.
  2. Although 200 million people are unemployed, nearly 60% of CEOs report that a shortage of skilled labor is holding back their company’s growth.
When companies draw on their unique strengths as businesses, they can leverage resources and ingenuity that create a profound impact in the education sector.
