With companies that have long-term views, revenue growth was 47% higher on average, and more resources were invested in R&D (even in periods of crisis). Financial performance was higher and nearly 12,000 more jobs on average were added. While other, short-term firms were cutting back on R&D, and not adding the same frequency of jobs. These are just some of the findings from the index.
