These key principles will be achieved through:
Having the board of directors come together on a regular basis to make decisions about the direction of the company and set long term goals to ensure a sustainable growth.
Ensuring the board of directors contains a mix of skillsets allowing for a variety of ideas and creative methods of solving problems to arise.
Directors that are able to dedicate sufficient time to their responsibilities and have the opportunity to regularly update their skillset.
Continue to ensure compliance in health and safety and auditing management system regulations.
Maintain openness and willingness to share accurate, clear, and easy-to-understand information with stakeholders.
A solid risk management process, an internal control framework and an up-to-date disaster recovery plan are all key to achieving this aim.
Good corporate governance leads to ethical business practices, which leads to financial viability.
