Following our well-received 2009 publication, Boards in turbulent times, Heidrick & Struggles has again examined the status of the largest South African public companies with respect to global corporate governance practices, and compared them specifically with the top public companies of fifteen European countries.

The findings are all the more relevant against the backdrop of the country’s growing role as an emerging market, and its position as the springboard for global enterprises’ growth strategies into Africa. It should be noted that South African boards have suffered the same erosion of public trust and tolerated increased scrutiny regarding their performance and governance, as have their global counterparts.
