SOURCE: WorkivaDESCRIPTION: The Integrated Reporting Movement, by Robert G. Eccles, Michael P. Krzus, and Sydney Ribot, explains how companies can ensure their own long-term viability by contributing to a sustainable society. Although integrated reporting has seen substantial development, widespread regulatory intervention has yet to materialize. The authors provide guidance to promote wider adoption of the practice and success of the movement, starting with how companies can improve their own reporting processes. Workiva presents chapters 8 and 9 of the book, which focus on the role information technology plays in the integrated reporting movement. These chapters provide an in-depth analysis of reporting websites for the 500 largest companies in the world, including suggestions to increase effectiveness through web presence, social media, and big data analysis.
