See you out on the course! Not only does #DellTechChamp entertain, but it also has a substantial impact on the community, economy and charities where our team members live and work. Since the tournament began, more than $27 million has been raised for New England area charities, and we’re proud this year to continue supporting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Dorchester and Boston. At the 17th Fairway, the Dell Technologies Fan Experience is a 4,300-sq. ft. tent devoted to showcasing how golf has become more technologically advanced. In the Experience is one of our biggest customers Topgolf, with its Swing Suite, where spectators can hit golf balls that track each shot’s accuracy and distance while awarding points for hitting targets in the outfield. This newest extension of Topgolf, powered by Dell EMC VxRail hyperconverged infrastructure, simulates the luxurious atmospheres of their hospitality and entertainment venues across the country. The best of golf meets the best of technology once again this Labor Day weekend at the Dell Technologies Championship event in Boston! For the second year in a row, Dell Technologies is proud to be the title sponsor of our second event on the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup Playoffs, one of the most exciting in the game of golf. To keep up with all the exciting, heart pounding action during #DellTechChamp, follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. We also invite spectators into the Fan Experience to test out the best in virtual reality golf. Dell Precision technology powers a virtual reality drone simulator, allowing the user to get a bird’s eye view of the course. And of course, our Alienware systems are the ultimate machines to test out your golf gaming prowess! An annual event since 2003, this year’s #DellTechChamp (Aug. 30 to Sept. 3) promises to be an event like no other, with the game’s top 100 players taking the course. And once again, Dell Technologies and the PGA are bringing an event like no other, merging one of the world’s oldest sports with the latest in technology, allowing fans interact in a way that truly demonstrates how the game is changing.
The UK Financial Reporting Council has put out a call for interested parties to take part in a new project under the auspices of its Financial Reporting Lab.The initiative will examine corporate disclosures in the UK about so-called company stakeholders.In a statement, the FRC said the project will include corporate reporting obligations under section 172 of the Companies Act 2006.With effect from 1 January 2019, UK companies have been required to report specifically on their compliance with that section of the Act. It said that company directors must act in such a way as to “promote the success of the company for the benefit of its members as a whole”.In doing so, the section goes on to explain that directors should consider a number of factors and stakeholders such as the firm’s workforce, its suppliers and even its impact on the wider environment.Back in 2017, Pensions & Investment Research Consultants Limited and the FRC found themselves embroiled in a row involving the UK Parliament over whether or not the watchdog could compel companies to report on their compliance with s172.Climate change campaigners ClientEarth have also argued that companies are not complying with the law and filed two regulatory complaints with the FRC.The government subsequently issued The Companies (Miscellaneous Reporting) Regulations 2018 to force companies to explain how they have complied with s172.In addition to s172, the new FRC Reporting Lab project will initially look at a range of other issues linked to stakeholder reporting such as: how companies engage with stakeholders;which aspects of reporting it is that companies find most challenging; and what lessons can be drawn from relevant international developments.Investors and companies that want to take part in the project can contact the FRC at [email protected] agency said it is also interested in hearing views from other relevant parties such as stakeholder representative bodies.To read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here.
