Participatory and inclusive governance
Rather than having an instrumental perspective on human capital, companies and governments should ensure the entire population and all employees are represented in decision making. The community is part of the powerplay, and everyone should be taken into consideration. It is important not to focus on a one-dimensional approach to, for example, diversity. An interdisciplinary approach is key, built on a joint network of employees, employers and citizens. This can be done through active participation of stakeholders, showing vulnerable and transparent leadership, or for example making employees co-owner of the company. Also, by applying a broader and longer horizon of capital markets.
