Measuring our Social Performance
We measure our social performance by monitoring various employee-related indicators. The selection of these indicators is informed by a number of elements, including the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the World Economic Forum (WEF) “Measuring Stakeholder Capitalism: Towards Common Metrics and Consistent Reporting of Sustainable Value Creation”, as well as requests made by stakeholders, such as FTSE4Good and other ESG research organizations.
The social data included in the document below is reported annually and for the calendar years ended December 31, unless otherwise indicated.
Power Corporation’s employee data is consolidated based on the definition of financial control and therefore includes our major publicly traded operating companies Great-West Lifeco and IGM Financial, as well as the Corporation’s wholly owned and controlled subsidiaries.
We conduct internal and external quality checks to ensure the accuracy of the data reported. For more specific information on our social data please refer to the referenced footnotes.
