VivagogyChanging the way we live, learn, invest and do business for better Total Societal Impact
‘The current industrial revolution, or 4IR, is happening, 10 times faster and having 300 times as much impact as the first.’- McKinsey
‘Companies have long focused on maximising total shareholder return (TSR) for investors. Today, under increasing scrutiny from all stakeholders, companies must also consider their total societal impact, TSI (total societal impact.) Adding the TSI lens to strategy setting naturally leads companies to leverage their core business to contribute to society in a way that enhances TSR (total shareholder return.)’ BCG
Speed of change is obliging us to accept that social interaction and non-financial goals are now an essential part of the business landscape.
The Boston Consulting Group found that companies that engage in Total Societal Impact improve their margins by between 3 and 19%!
Jobs, business models, systems and people’s competencies have a short life, so we must accept uncertainty as a concept and adapt constantly.
Organisations and people, have to be more ‘fluid’ and businesses need to be aware that non-financial goals and a good social impact profile is going to make them appealing to investors and customers.
Business models need to be built into ecosystems which reduce their supply chains so they can anticipate and react faster to market changes. ‘The competitive asset is people and how fast they learn.’ BCG
People need to understand their competencies and what they need to do to up-skill because it is a vital constant process.
Financial stakeholders are very excited about investing in ‘social good’. But they need tools that measure social impact as well as financial data. This a key risk-mitigation criteria for total societal impact investment
We need to move from ‘concessional’ social investment to ‘sustainable’ commercial investment.
What are we doing?
We are supporting the vital transition towards a fluid mindset and TSI which create innovative business models beneficial social impact and increased margins.
We are applying blockchain, second-generation AI and, total societal impact business models to create value added chains which make savings in the use of property, the measurement of people and the way organisations, are managed, behave and invest.
Our goal is to embed TSI, or a total societal impact in to all organisations. The overall benefit to society and the company from really adopting TSI is proven by BCG. products.
Adopting TSI is a way that business and finance can contribute to a more sustainable world.
We are building a Quantum Data Engine (QDE), which will be able to measure the performance of people and businesses. It will define people by what their knowledge and competencies.
Individuals will be able to learn free for specific purposes and job competencies.
They will learn life-long and this data will be retained in secure competency profiles.
Business will be able to use tools to measure people to reduce the cost of recruitment by 70%, develop better leadership and cultures and make themselves more competitive by putting their people on the balance sheet
In this way we will bring more people into the employment market by giving them accurate information about what competencies they need now and throughout their lives.
Companies can benefit by improving performance and margin.
Social impact investment is growing exponentially with about $24 Trillion invested currently.
It is widely accepted that businesses investing in financial as well as non-financial goals perform better. (BCG).
Despite this, there is no quantitative risk assessment, audit or measurement for this investment sector.
Using the QDE analysis engine we will be able to gather data and provide measurements of the UN sustainability goals, social impact and, financial data.
With this tool concessionary becomes viable sustainable investment an OECD investment goal.
Data from both measuring people and external performance gives a total TSI picture for all stakeholders including customers
Changing property usage
The global real estate industry is valued at $217 trillion.
Property is a traditional industry but recent research suggests a decline in growth which can be partly attributed to a societal shift against physical assets in favour of crypto alternatives.
The lack of liquidity in the property market makes the market inefficient and disenfranchises an increasing number of people from owning their own properties.
We are building tools, financial products and blockchain technology to tokenise property assets making them more fluid which adds efficiency to allowing more people to participate.
The tokenisation of property has great beneficial societal effects enfranchising people and creating a better and more secure value chain.
