What can business learn from health and fitness?

Just as keeping fit requires a careful balance of nutrition, varied exercise and a healthy lifestyle that looks after both body and mind, creating a healthy business requires a balancing act of many different factors, such as profit, purpose and people. 

In both instances, focusing too much on just one component at the expense of others can have a negative impact. In business, chasing profit at all costs, without caring about the impact on people or the environment is a recipe for failure. 

Organisations must target responsible growth. That means putting the customer at the heart of all they do, with a strategy that combines financial goals with a commitment to long-term, sustained outcomes, built on foundations of doing the right thing - financially and ethically.

Cat McCusker, Responsible Growth Lead at PwC UK says there are six key ‘levers’ businesses should be pulling on as they seek to deliver responsible growth.

“We really need to think about all of the levers of responsible growth. They go from experience to marketing, to sales, to the service you provide, pricing of course and innovation. And it’s really understanding, at any one time, which levers you use as an organisation..”

The challenge is to find the right balance to create sustained growth for the organisation and value for its customers, communities and society. Data can help uncover the most effective combination, and measure its relative impact.

Analysing data can quickly reveal how customer behaviour and preferences are shifting, enabling businesses to create more compelling, personalised offerings and richer relationships, through a customer-led transformation.
