After a number of years of development and emerging practice, our Global OMINDEX® ESG Standard is now used in multiple practice contexts; from investment and corporate to advisory settings, such as corporate governance and law.
We have therefore established an OMINDEX® Users Group (OUG); where like-minded professionals who are deploying OMINDEX® in their own area of practice are coming together to share experiences, knowledge and opportunities to grow and improve.
The OUG is a network of professional practitioners who are using the OMINDEX® diagnostic within their own practice setting. It is a multi-disciplinary group and members are either fully trained OMINDEX® practitioners or are working in partnership with the MI/OMS LLP team.
Members have to be fully trained OMINDEX® practitioners or on a development pathway, working in partnership with the MI/OMS LLP team. There are several ways to become a member of the OUG, as follows:
- Qualifying as a trained OMINDEX® analyst through one of our foundation programmes (see for example, our training for company leaders and managers).
- Direct application, after studying the Maturity Institute’s core text ‘The Mature Corporation – A Model of Responsible Capitalism’, and having demonstrated understanding of both the requirements of OMINDEX® and the working standards of the Maturity Institute.
- By recommendation or invitation from OUG members, having already satisfied the criterion in (2) above.
The aim of the OUG is to help develop and evolve the use of OMINDEX® in professional practice settings. It sets out to help build a mature ecosystem of trained, professional ‘clinicians’ who are growing a new market for responsible business, investment and regulation underpinned by a purpose rooted in improving Total Stakeholder Value. The group also provides a networking opportunity for OUG members to share experiences and develop new opportunities.
The OMINDEX® users group will continue to evolve and develop as a wide range of specialists become part of this international network. If you work in investment or advisory; or if you are company leader or manager, you can learn and use OMINDEX® in your own area of practice.
