Masters Institute: Corporate Social Responsibility

Today’s Corporate Social Responsibility: How A Strategic Approach Drives Revenue, Attracts Talent, Engages Stakeholders

Increased stakeholder engagement, demands for greater transparency and even talent acquisition have made corporate social responsibility and an increasingly valuable strategy for organizations. But that doesn’t mean that all organizations have embraced it, or even those that have are maximizing value. In fact, one recent study showed that less than 20% of companies have a fully-developed corporate social responsibility plan – while nearly one quarter have no plan at all. In this Masters’ Institute program, we will explore why organizations should embrace and adopt corporate social responsibility programs. And the importance of making them strategic and authentic. Because it’s no longer enough to participate, the savviest organizations are those that make it an integral part of their business practices. Done successfully, these contribute to improved bottom lines and increased loyalty from stakeholders. And it can help organizations recruit and retain the employees that can be central to both of those.
