Five Jobs To Be Done

To find out what European business leaders felt about the four Grand Challenges, Xynteo spoke with 27 CEOs, chairmen and C-suite executives from European companies. Xynteo selected five ‘jobs to be done’ to address these challenges.
At this point in time, when the European Union is formulating a new strategy for the green transition as well as a new industrial strategy, I believe that Europe Delivers’ specific suggestions and ideas can inspire decision-makers to accelerate the actions we need.
Connie Hedegaard, Former European Commissioner for Climate Action
Today there is a new social contract between the private sector and the public. Companies must think not only about the obligations they have to shareholders and employees, but also about their obligations to society and the ways in which we work and live. Europe Delivers adds an important voice to this new social dynamic and highlights the need for social responsibility to be embedded in the strategy of organisations of every size and every sector.
Hans Vestberg, Chairman & CEO, Verizon Communications Inc.
Globalisation brought prosperity for billions of people but not for all people in all countries. The response shouldn’t be to put up fences, but to make globalisation more inclusive.
Feike Sijbesma, CEO, DSM
Businesses have a responsibility to step up and help governments design and provide solutions, through sustained dialogue, public private partnerships where relevant, or more innovative cooperation.”
Thomas Buerbel, CEO, AXA
Let’s build on our proud heritage as Europeans and not depress ourselves into the future.”
