This year, we reviewed the extent to which certain social themes have permeated the Dutch boardrooms. Sustainability and digitalisation are seen as key social themes by 60% of the CEOs, which are frequently to constantly a topic. Sustainability has been a hot item in the boardrooms for many years. It has now become one of the key social themes for CEOs. It is interesting that in spite of being accorded such importance, it is not classed as a major strategic issue, apparently organisations do not allow social developments to be leading in preparing their strategic policy. On the other hand, the other social theme considered important, digitalisation , is reflected on the CEOs’ strategic agendas as well. As digitalisation has an increasing impact on the way in which organisations operate, it is not surprising that cybersecurity is also a major social theme. The interest in cybersecurity also in part coincides with the conclusion that risk management plays an increasing role within organisations. After all, a leak or weakness in the digital infrastructure can have major consequences to the organisation’s primary process and even the organisation’s reputation. Although many companies seem to see future mountains of gold abroad, international themes such as geopolitical tensions and European politics have a remarkably low place on the agenda in many companies.
