In the midst of a national debate about responsible capitalism and how our companies should be run, this collection of essays is aimed at looking at corporate governance issues, what needs to change and how employees can play a bigger role in workplace democracy. What role would employees play if they were on the board as they are at John Lewis and First Group? And how have banks changed to try and rebuild their customer trust?
