Being a political leader in a democracy is an inherently tenuous role – elections are won or lost, mandates secured or whittled away. In business, leadership has required an ongoing effort to maintain support; but in recent decades, CEOs have started to experience a similar level of volatility that their political counterparts have long faced. Between 2000 and 2010, the average tenure of a Fortune 500 CEO fell from 9.5 years to 3.5 years – a period of time almost mirroring a single American presidential term. In 2011, nearly 15% of the world’s top CEOs left their jobs, with the turnover rate being highest among the 250 largest companies.


These trends need to be located within the wider context of the politicization of business, which means many companies are now often under the same harsh and unforgiving lens as political candidates. Brands are now public property, with assertive consumers feeling entitled to deem what businesses can and cannot do. As debates over executive remuneration and corporate taxes show, it’s not enough for something to be simply legal or commercially correct: it must also be judged as moral and fair.

This week, College for America released the results of a national web survey of 400 employers conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research. The research shows a decided preference among employers to develop current employees for management roles rather than hiring from outside the company, but that employers struggle to find employees with the skills they value for higher positions.

On Thursday, Small Business Majority released the results of a national web survey of 500 small business owners. This poll, conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, reveals that a 57 percent majority of small business owners supports increasing the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. They cite enhancing consumer spending and strengthening the economy as reasons to boost pay. A majority also agrees that raising the minimum wage would decrease pressure on taxpayer-finanaced government assistance to make up for low wages.

Voters overwhelmingly want to see the country move away from coal and toward renewable energy, and they believe the government should be taking more action to combat climate disruption, according to a new national survey for the Sierra Club conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner. As a result, voters show very strong support for new EPA limits on carbon pollution from power plants, support which holds up after voters hear pros and cons about the proposal, including strong arguments from opponents of the plan on its potential impact on jobs and energy prices.
