While many CEOs have backed off flag-waving about stakeholder capitalism principles after it became entangled in the “woke” controversy, the incoming chair of the Business Roundtable, Chuck Robbins, CEO of Cisco, recently reiterated to outgoing Fortune publisher Alan Murray the organization’s commitment to stakeholder capitalism, based on addressing legitimate concerns.

Stakeholder Capitalism Makes Sense Based on How Its Implemented

“I still think it’s important. What I struggle with is the following: If we create an environment that’s good for our employees, that’s a good thing. If we create an environment that creates healthy communities, that’s a good thing. If we also create an environment that has positive returns for our shareholders, positive outcomes for our customers, positive outcomes for our partners, what’s bad about that? I just don’t understand. No, I think the question of how you go about it is what’s being challenged, and the question of quotas and things of that nature, I think are legitimate discussions to have. But focusing on ensuring that, I mean our purpose statement as a company is to power an inclusive future for all. And we live it, and we believe it, and we walk it and it’s through our technology where we connect people around the world who have never been connected before, and they find themselves with an opportunity to be educated, to actually receive certain types of health care to, and now after the pandemic, they can actually get jobs where they are and work from where they are. And then the community service stuff that we do, we think, why would we not want a healthy community?”
