Reporting is key as it is the only way for the public audience to assess if implementation of a strategy is effective. We’re aware that companies are struggling with a number of requests but we think that the Workforce Disclosure Initiative should help companies in the longer term. We’re convinced that we’re entering the phase where consolidation is needed and that the WDI can perform this role.
