Corporate Social Responsibility Consulting That Is People-Centric
Corporate Social Responsibility sounds like a buzz word in today’s environment, but it has never been more important to the employment sector, the economy and society in general. Corporate Social Responsibility, also known as CSR, is the inherent value of an organisation to commit to pressing social and environmental issues.
CSR is about the degree to which a company will engage in human rights, environmental care, equitable employment, gender equality and community engagement, among other areas.
With the easy access to information, customers are no longer satisfied to simply receive a service from a business. Customers are global citizens who engage with the world as agents of change. CSR is not about doing charity, but about materialising values into positive change. This is what customers care about in today’s environment. If you can hold shared value with your employees, your customers and your stakeholders, you are on your way to effective CSR.
This is where corporate social responsibility consulting comes in.
Corporations no longer simply have a responsibility to meet a financial bottom line. Engaging in the process that leads to that bottom line in an ethical way is just as important. When a corporation understands this, they have found the spearhead of CSR.
Corporate Social Responsibility Consulting
Corporate social responsibility consulting ensures your company successfully implements and benefits from its CSR initiatives. CSR consulting helps define the CSR initiatives, identify key stakeholders, determine the appropriate messaging, define scorecards as well as energise the internal and external sources of support. The reality is that when you put people first, your business thrives. CSR that is people-centric fosters unity, growth and diversity.
So, is corporate social responsibility consulting right for me?
The simple answer is yes. Here’s why. Corporate social responsibility consulting requires extensive research. As a CSR consultant, we engage with customers, stakeholders and even focus groups during the research process. The primary importance is to identify potential CSR initiatives for the company. The next step is to create a plan for implementation. CSR requires the creation of KPIs and assessing operational performance as well as partnering with employees and third parties. Awareness is an ongoing part of the process. CSR has many moving pieces that require support from all parties involved.
CSR takes time, effort, and expertise. In our experience, it is best when you entrust your business to a consultant who cares and knows the best way forward.
Selecting the Best CSR Initiative
Corporate social responsibility consulting is essential to better brand reception. CSR results in brand recognition, which then leads to better financial performance. Through accountability and transparency, most organisations are also able to attract and retain talent. While your organisation could work on their social responsibility initiatives independently, consulting offers insight into the market. This creates space to set quantifiable objectives that lead to a stronger brand presence.
