Characteristics of MsOS Companies
Companies guided by a multi-stakeholder operating system generally demonstrate these key characteristics:
Their customers are willing to pay an economically profitable price for their products and services, feel well-served and keep coming back.
Their work environment inspires employees to be highly committed, productive and innovative.
Their culture gives them a competitive advantage and increases their adaptive strength and resiliency to changing market conditions.
Communities welcome them and invite them to set up shop, thereby increasing the local customer base and decreasing the likelihood of regulatory or legal issues.
They develop high quality relationships with suppliers that reduce the occurrence of labor and human rights abuses and supply chain disruptions.
They possess a reputation for transparency and integrity and demonstrate an unwillingness to sacrifice long-term financial health for more transitory short-term earnings.
They do not believe that compromises have to be made between creating wealth for shareholders and tending to the interdependent needs of multiple stakeholders.
