Description

Affordable CSR – Practical and Engaging ways to boost the Bottom Line

Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) is sometimes viewed as a discipline that only large companies can afford to do. SME businesses can then feel sidelined when competitive sales tenders/PQQs require them to outline their programmes, they believe (wrongly) they can’t do it.

This SBN session is focused on showing how CSR programmes can be run on a shoestring and, arguably more easily by SMEs than by their larger competitors. We’ll show in the session straightforward – and low cost ways to run a CSR programme, how to engage staff to be your assets in the projects, benefit communities (locally and further afield) and how to market what you are doing to enhance your brand and success within sale’s tenders.

We’ll also look at best practice for managing and reporting your CSR – including new legislation.
