“With an increasing number of people volunteering and taking working holidays, it is no wonder that there is now a movement towards bringing this philanthropic way of being to our workplace — our home away from home. Many are lobbying Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as the new business ideology that will do just that. Our European cousins are witnessing the tangible benefits acting responsibly within their business. Areas of focus do vary, most looking at their economic, environmental or social impacts, but the outcome only tends to be consistently positive if designed with the truest intention at heart. It is no longer enough to have a policy or procedure to hide behind – organizations must be seen to be doing, not just talking about the latest trend in business management.
This valuable guide is cleverly designed in six main sections:
1. Overview of CSR
2. Create a CSR policy
3. Make the structure flexible
4. Focus on long-term projects
6. Give employees time off
Dive into this series, complete with live case studies, with Corporate Social Responsibility Executive, Jennifer Kiwala, who expertly addresses how you can successfully embrace CSR at your workplace.”
