Our purpose: Creating a world of difference
The idea of ‘creating’ a difference relates to our values of care and collaboration in making the client and candidate experience exceptional, enabling the ‘positive leadership’ and ‘positive impact’ upon which Fisher Leadership is based. Creating a ‘world’ of difference refers to our solutions for the new world of work, connecting talent to work and organisations to leaders differently. The ‘difference’ element in our purpose statement respects our legacy of bringing more diverse decision-makers to the table and our vision for being able to curate cognitive diversity in teams for better outcomes.
In a time where automation, augmentation and addition will shape the future of work, we put people at the centre of every challenge, and human workplace challenges at the centre of our business.
Fisher Leadership’s values underpin our processes, the way we treat people, and our approach to business. Our values represent the way we work, every day.
Our genuine care earns trust in each other, our partners and our clients.
We believe partnership is the new leadership, and cognitive diversity is key to successful collaboration.
We exist to solve beyond the now. We commit to seeing things differently.
We drive transformative impact in the new working world.
Our Commitment to Sustainability Practices
Throughout the report, the SDG icons are used to reference the alignment of our initiatives.
ESG Sustainability Reporting
There is little doubt 2020 is a defining year in our shared history. The reality that we are only as strong and healthy as the people and partnerships around us has hit home.
Sustainability is key to business, investment, supply chains, employee retention and customer loyalty.
Our heritage as a trusted advisor to leadership teams has led to the development and implementation of our best-practice ESG Sustainability Reporting framework. Our ESG service partners with your team to document and develop Environmental, Social and Governance standards to deliver accountability and value creation to your stakeholders.
Build a better, more sustainable world with ESG reporting.
A Connected Community
At Fisher Leadership we believe partnership is the new leadership. We understand the value of strong communities and feel compelled and grateful to contribute proactively to the places where we live and work. We put back a significant amount of profit into community causes that align to our purpose of making a difference, and our sustainability goals for leaders around cognitive diversity, mental health and the future of work.
Some of our key contributions to empowering diverse leaders include our foundational partnership for the Diversity Council of Australia’s Diversity and Inclusion Network, our founding sponsorship of the Mandarin Careers Platform for the public sector, our longstanding partner with IPAA to host the International Women’s Day gala dinner, as well as to curate the Senior Executive Women’s Network mentoring program.
Another highlight for us is impacting highly talented individual leaders including our sponsorship of Indigenous health leader Cara Lee Cray to undertake an MBA at Deakin University, and our sponsorship of Indigenous artist and story-teller Greg Matthews, as we partner with RCH150 – the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation to raise awareness for their 150-year celebration of community impact. Our participation in shaping the new working world is channeled into partnerships such as our representation on the National Education Advisory Committee for the Australian Institute of Company Directors. As well as our participation in the Committee for Melbourne technology and future skills taskforces and a content partnership with the Future Work Summit shaping the human experience of work in decades to come.
When we think about leadership, we are thinking global. As the exclusive local partner to the IMD International Search Group – a global top 20 executive search organisation, Fisher Leadership enables clients and candidates to connect across regions, cultures and sectors. We are also a fully credited member of AESC, the Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants.
