Aside from healthcare, which you’ve just read about, find an example of an industry that you think is particularly well suited for the pbc model as well as an industry that you think would struggle the most with the pbc structure.


Now that you’ve considered some perspectives on both conventional corporations and PBCs, it’s clear that there is no one-size-fits-all approach for any particular company. Conventional for-profit corporations have provided the foundation for business growth for many decades, but in recent years there have been questions about whether a for-profit corporation can exercise responsible corporate citizenship. PBCs, on the other hand, commit to act as socially responsible corporate citizens, but their hybrid structure creates an imposing administrative and compliance burden. So let’s apply these two corporate models to a couple of real-world examples.
Create a post in which you answer the following prompts:
Draw on your own work experience and think of a company you currently work for or worked for in the past. Is this company better suited to a conventional for-profit business model or a PBC model, and why? It doesn’t matter whether the business is structured as a corporation or another legal entity; we’re not focusing on formalities. Instead, identify the goals that you think the company should both set for itself and can realistically achieve.
Aside from healthcare, which you’ve just read about, find an example of an industry that you think is particularly well suited for the PBC model as well as an industry that you think would struggle the most with the PBC structure. For each example, justify your answer with your reasoning. Feel free to do outside research and use real-life examples.
