FTI Consulting, an international consulting firm listed on the New York Stock Exchange that helps organisations manage change, mitigate risk and resolve disputes, has launched FTI Consulting Talks in Spain. It is a podcast that analyses the key aspects that companies must take into account when facing special situations, whether financial or transactional (restructurings, M&A…), operational (business transformation processes), legal (disputes, arbitration, fraud, money laundering…) or reputational and regulatory.
In the latest episode of the podcast Should companies get involved? Juan Rivera, Senior Manager Director of FTI Consulting in Spain, analyses whether companies should take a stance on political, social or ethical issues. Today, the dominant idea is that companies have to take care of the interests of all their stakeholders (not only shareholders, but also their employees, customers, suppliers, public administrations, the communities in which they operate, society as a whole, etc.) and cannot only dedicate themselves to the interests of their stakeholders. Does this mean that companies must take a position on all social controversies? “Not at all,” he says.
In previous episodes, the firm’s experts have addressed issues such as the best strategies for combating corporate fraud; reputational analysis as a key to potential corporate transactions; and the role of the media in the fight against fraud.
as a key factor in possible corporate operations; or what are the restructuring trends for the second half of the year, among others.
The different episodes of the podcast, available on the main digital platforms such as Spotify, aim to develop and clearly focus on some of the main challenges faced by organisations at key moments for their immediate and long-term future in approximately fifteen minutes.
