This White Paper is an initiative to explore, establish, and embrace the emerging job role of social value managers and similar roles at the heart of impact creation and social value delivery of organisations. This White Paper has been co-created, with over 150 organisations and individuals partaking in our research and giving us insights.
We wanted to give social value professionals a voice to express their needs, challenges and biggest wins at work.
