(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Governments globally want their countries to have high-value, high-skill economies. They realise that the first step towards achieving this is to have a well-educated workforce. The Shared Value Initiative and FSG, a not-for-profit consulting firm specialising in strategy, evaluation and research, are working with corporate and global education leaders to define a new role for business in education. They have released a report, based on interviews with more than 50 global business and civil society leaders, highlighting how companies across industries and geographies are creating shared value by filling unmet educational needs, improving student outcomes, and overcoming workforce constraints in ways that bring economic benefits back to the company.

This is an initiative that leverages the power of business to improve educational outcomes worldwide. It explores the innovative ways that leading companies are putting, where education is at the core of their corporate strategies. This is not philanthropy nor is it pure business; it is where companies are emerging as catalysts to develop skilled workforces.
