Leading for the Long Term at Pitney Bowes

Built on a proud legacy of innovation, Pitney Bowes is approaching our 100-year anniversary in 2020. Looking ahead to the next 100 years, Pitney Bowes understands the importance of fostering the next generation of innovators, creative problem solvers, and collaborators to help our clients succeed in the rapidly changing world of commerce.

As part of this commitment, Marc Lautenbach, President and CEO, recently visited Denison University, his alma mater and where he serves on the Board of Trustees, to speak with a group of undergraduate students studying Global Commerce. Denison is one of a growing number of colleges and universities attempting to bridge the gap between education and businesses by offering degrees in this field. Denison’s Global Commerce degree gives students a deeper understanding of the inextricable linkages between commerce and society. Marc was invited to share his industry expertise and perspective to help students deepen their understanding of the world of business, explore career possibilities, and begin to build their own professional network.

During his visit, Marc discussed the role of a corporation in “an economy that serves all Americans,” This is part of the new, redefined purpose recently developed by the Business Roundtable, an association made up of 181 US CEOs, including Marc who work toward promoting a thriving economy and value for their clients, employees and shareholders. The Business Roundtable’s full statement can be read here.

Marc shared advice from his own career and experiences and invited the students to provide their opinions on this new purpose and ideas to bring to the next Business Roundtable meeting. Students were eager to share their suggestions including continuing to encourage businesses to prioritize their employee benefits and challenging businesses to think about the implications of growth. Collectively, they questioned whether growth is a necessity for success with concerns about what consequences it could bring. Further, students suggested that Marc challenge the Business Roundtable to look at the changing education landscape in America and to encourage companies to look internally at providing benefits such as continuous training for employees for whom education may have been unattainable.

As the pace of innovation continues to increase, Pitney Bowes looks forward to engaging with the next generation that will help to transform the long-term future. Guided by our strategic intent that leadership for the long term creates sustainable financial value, Pitney Bowes offers a suite of Leadership Programs to develop various employee cohorts as enablers of a learning & performance culture. We recognize that skills are the digital currency of today and therefore we’re future proofing our most critical skills as the foundation for our next 100 years.
