Market data has shown that the style and content of a report should depend on the company and its environment. For this reason all of our reports are individualised according to these factors. The success of corporate reporting largely depends on the correct structure of the key messages, so we pay special attention to interaction with stakeholders. Zebra has developed a unique content personalisation system, through which we can highlight the relevance of each part of the report with mathematical precision.
Our team collects and acts upon the feedback at all stages of the preparation of the annual report and immediately after its publication. Furthermore our team conducts annual research on the best practices in the field, which allows Zebra to identify avenues for growth and carry out improvements in our data collection system and project management prior to the start of each reporting period.
Getting communications right goes a long way toward ensuring your success, therefore, our key focus is on stakeholder relations. Zebra’s proprietary data personalisation system enables highly accurate estimates of readership, for every individual section of a report.
We are confident that the style and content of reporting need to evolve as the company grows and its environment changes. Every year, we review the relevant best practices, provide training to our clients’ employees and identify growth points through joint efforts with our clients.
In the last year, regulators and stock exchanges reviewed their disclosure requirements for listed companies. All these efforts were aimed at both simplifying the task of company analysis and improving the quality of information disclosure. It is important to present a coherent story in a single document covering all aspects of your activities — business strategy, corporate governance, HR development, cost efficiency, environmental safety and contribution to social development. The reality is that today’s investors look at a company’s vision for the future, supported by an integrated management system rather than focusing on isolated historical performance data.
If you already have experience preparing traditional annual and CSR reports and are considering transition to a modern, integrated format, Zebra is happy to explain the advantages of integrated reporting. For example developing the list of right KPIs to enhance your company’s message and comparing the requirements of different standards. We will jointly create a phased roadmap to guide you through the transition, to a new data collection and consolidation framework and identify the integration approach best suited to your needs.
Publishing the first annual report is a major milestone and a challenging one for any company. You have to carefully and skilfully consider a myriad of nuances — from choosing the correct reporting standards and fine-tuning internal processes, to the detailed aspects of interaction with your advisor and contractors.
Zebra’s extensive track-record in relevant projects and research, supported by our technological expertise and effective teamwork, can make your debut experience as seamless as possible — turning your first project into a good start on your corporate reporting journey.
