Summary of the

2015 Learnings and

Insights report

‘Shared value’ is a concept increasingly relevant to

contemporary business, used to define an approach

to generating economic value that also produces

value for society. In the context of the Jawun program,

it describes how corporate and government partners

strengthen employees’ professional development and

overall organisational culture, while also benefiting

Indigenous organisations and communities through

transfer of skills, capacity and opportunity.

The ‘win–win’ scenario of shared value has

implications for a global context, where trust in

businesses is increasingly eroded by perceptions

that success comes largely at the expense of

communities. Reconnecting company success with

social progress through a shared value approach is

optimistic and compelling. It promises new unity,

and even a chance to ‘reshape capitalism and its

relationship to society’
