Corporate Social Responsibility

With an improved understanding of all the strands that social responsibility incorporates and the ways to embrace and leverage these, you can open up new opportunities to improve the overall performance of your company and become a far more purposeful business.

This includes becoming an employer of choice to attract and retain quality staff, differentiating yourself from your competition and developing new and valuable partnerships.

Hosted by Tap Social Movement and presented by Grant Hayward, founder of Collaborent, CSR – An Under Utilised Business Improvement Tool will be an interactive session and also explain what corporate social responsibility (CSR) really is, including the lesser known elements and the ways in which you can improve your business through it.
