What Hospice Boards Should Know About ESG

The acronym ESG, which stands for environmental, social and governance, has taken on increasing importance for publicly traded companies, but should all hospice boards be paying attention? Matt Kelly, is Editor and CEO of Radical Compliance, says yes – for several reasons. Regulators want companies to care about it, respond to it, and make various disclosures about it. The general public cares about it. And hospice stakeholder groups care about it. Bill Musick, President of Integriti3D, interviews Matt on the critical importance of ESG, what hospice boards should know, and how they can start addressing ESG today.

What Boards Can do to Support a Culture of Integrity, Fairness and Respect

A board member may ask, very rightly, “What can a board do to influence the culture of integrity, fairness and respect within the organization?” that they support. In this video, Bill Musick outlines three ways that a board can influence that culture:

  1. Model integrity in their own practice
  2. Recruit for integrity
  3. Assess for integrity
