There are significant benefits to a Corporate Partnership with WB Directors. Our Partners organisationally and individual employee members (of all genders) report impactful improvements across multiple areas.
Key benefits of our Corporate Partnerships include:
Recruitment & retention

It improves career resilience and understanding of workforce dynamics. Ambitious and diverse employees hugely appreciate being part of the WB Directors network with access to our cross-industry network members and our boards community.
When we meet your employees, we discuss with them the need to own their careers. We give them access to research-backed information, to help them make informed choices regarding their skills gaps as we walk them through how to improve their influencing skills and meeting management techniques to achieve more inclusive and effective decision-making.
We ensure that your employees are aware of good governance and the board’s role because we believe that all potential leaders benefit from understanding the boardroom, which is where the ultimate power lies. We aim is to support your employees in making promising career and life decisions while giving them access to our external ‘boards’ network should they be interested in considering a community board role now or one day in the future.
By facilitating employees to take on non-conflicting board and committee roles, you are allowing them to grow their knowledge around strategy, governance and broader leadership skills, enhancing at-work skills, increasing career satisfaction and growing personal motivation.
Encouraging your employees to leverage their skills and experience to support community organisations by exploring board and committee roles creates opportunities to give back to the community and makes a point of difference on their CVs.
