Companies number one purpose is to raise profit for their
shareholders. I don't propose this change. Companies don't
give a **** about people. This is a potential solution to that.
Due to stakeholder capitalism, a company is expected to:
consider the "environment"
"living wage payers"
be "carbon neutral"
provide "excellent customer service"
manage employee relations
manage supplier relations
care for local communities
My solution to these problems is for the company to be
presented with a list of options (and prices) for each of
options and be given access to a computer user interface to
make bids and the company puts in an order for the price
they are willing to pay to make each problem go away. This
their funding of stakeholder capitalism.
Usually companies will decide to commit a fixed % of profits
into stakeholder capitalism goals.
How can a company aim to only produce profit also consider
all these waste of times? These cost money.
All these things cost money and frankly, are a waste of time
because it's not your core business.
This idea is to save the time used by businesses to
these things with minimal impact to the 'just make a profit'
I propose a digital marketplace that sells special
which I call "non-core business wrapped instruments".
A business cannot serve multiple masters simultaneously. By
representing everything as a marketplace, everyone can get
what they want. Community demands, customer demands,
employee demands can all be represented as records on a
system that can be allocated a cost (inserted by an
outsourced company) that the company can decide to pay
or not. It can be reviewed by managers. Business process
changes can be agreed and would install the relevant
business circuitry to make the agreed change.
are a combination of:
- computer programs seat licences (precanned business
circuitry, see later paragraph)
- digital outsourced contracts for hire and digital catalogue
of services potentially rendered
- digital labour market
People who care about diversity. People who care about the
local community People who care about the environment.
all the people who should be reviewing company data,
generating solutions, doing research and inserting them into

outsourcing services on a digital marketplace which divides
each piece of work into a task that the company is buying.

So, if an employee has a matter he wants to resolve with
employer and a corporation has a contract for employee
relations, the employee can login to a system with his
employee credentials and see what options are available on
the market place of resolutions. And also propose his own.
It's a bit like giving an employee a catalogue of things that
they can propose to happen with them. Such as requesting
Business circuitry is the idea that a function of one business
can be composed of outsourced companies that operate
internally to the corporation. Like a graft of people and
digital systems, they are form a circuit within the
Diversity hiring would be provided by experts who have a
review CVs with colour and race blindness and affirmative
action quotas. They do all this work for you.
Hiring is a part of a business circuit that can be grafted into
corporation and integrate with systems that drive the hiring
and recruitment process.
An environmental instrument would be like a catalogue of
sustainable products and services in a catalogue
Customer service is possible to be excellent by integrating
as a business circuit into operations of a corporation and
the company paying billing customer agents on a labour
market, without having to hire anyone or hire a call centre
Say a community has a problem with a bakery corporations
lack of bins outside their stores and the litter generated.
The community can login to a website and make a petition
for bins. This is inserted into the system whereby an
outsourced person is assigned to it, reviews it, decides it
requires a business change and assigns records for buying
bins for every branch and the cost of each, as part of a
report that would be read by a manager to make the the
business change agreement. The manager only needs to
approve the record in the marketplace to action the change
in reality. Which is the placing of bins outside stores while
the store is open.
This system would create lots of jobs too.
