The rapid rise of what we call the social enterprise. Inwe are witnessing seismic changes in the workforce, the workplace, and the technologies used in the world of work. Organizations are no longer assessed based only on traditional metrics such as financial performance, or even the quality of their products or services.
Rather, organizations today are increasingly judged on the basis of their relationships with their workers, their customers, and their communities, as well as their impact on society at large—transforming them from business enterprises into social enterprises.
In many ways, social capital is achieving a newfound status next to financial and physical capital in value. Building these relationships challenges business leaders to listen closely to constituents, act transparently with information, break down silos to enhance collaboration, and build trust, credibility, and consistency through their actions.
This is not a matter of altruism: What is a social enterprise? A social enterprise is an organization whose mission combines revenue growth and profit-making with the need to respect and support its environment and stakeholder network. It is an organization that shoulders its responsibility to be a good citizen both inside and outside the organizationserving as a role model for its peers and promoting a high degree of collaboration at every level of the organization.
Organizations on the leading edge of both of these changes embody our concept of the social enterprise: We believe that it is driven by social, economic, and political changes that have grown since the global financial crisis. People today have less trust in their political and social institutions than they have in years; many expect business leaders to fill the gap.

Citizens are looking to business to fill the void on critical issues such as income inequality, health care, diversity, and cybersecurity to help make the world more equal and fair. This expectation is placing immense pressure on companies, but it is also creating opportunities.
Organizations that engage with people and demonstrate that they are worthy of trust are burnishing their reputation, winning allies, and influencing or supplanting traditional public policy mechanisms.
Third, technological change is having unforeseen impacts on society even as it creates massive opportunities to achieve sustainable, inclusive growth. Advances in artificial intelligence AI and new communications technologies are fundamentally changing how work gets done, who does it, and how it influences society.
People increasingly realize that rapid technological change, while holding out the promise of valuable opportunities, also creates unforeseen impacts that can undermine social cohesion.
Many stakeholders are alarmed, and they expect businesses to channel this force for the broader good.Here's a closer look at the incredible history of the Boeing 1 / In , Boeing began work on a to seat narrow-body airliner designed for trips between 50 and 1, miles.
