Corporate Social Responsibility Practice & Implementation | Dr. William P. Kittredge | President Cervelet Management & Strategy Consulting
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Dr. William P. Kittredge. The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is for those who would like to get into action right away. It assumes some knowledge of CSR, therefore it will focus on implementation rather than theory.
It is for business people who are convinced that the best way to do business is to do it responsibly, but feel they need more practical information to act. It is for entrepreneurs or managers, who would rather cut through academic-sounding discourse, grasp the essence of what socially responsible business really means, and begin to implement it in their own context.
At its core, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is what good businesses have always been about; quality, integrity, honest dealing, and long-term trust, balanced by stewardship of resources, fair profits, and public accountability. This webinar introduces these core issues within the context of global
competitiveness. It offers a set of integrated yet distinct actions that any entrepreneur or company, big or small, can take on its own and demonstrate behaviour that today's society expects from companies. Built around six primary areas of interest (Financial Viability, Governance and Management, Principles and Policies, Compliance and
Disclosure, Stakeholder Engagement, and Product and Customer Focus) the webinar is designed to provide actionable insights for busy business people.
What will you learn:
- What socially responsible business really means and how to apply it in their large, medium, or small business context.
- The dimensions of CSR and how to apply them to real business situations.
- A practical, hands-on approach to CSR, accountability, transparency, and reporting.
- The use of specific CSR check-lists to assess your company's needs, and assist in setting measures and reporting.
