"Many companies are grappling with defining purpose and what an effective culture means, with too many substituting slogans or marketing lines.” “Concentrating on achieving box-ticking compliance, at the expense of effective governance and reporting, is paying lip service to the spirit of the Code and does a disservice to the interests of stakeholders.” Sir Jon Thompson, CEO Financial Reporting Council (FRC)
