Globally we are facing social, political, environmental, economic and political crises. Today stakeholders, including shareholders, customers, civil society and employees, expect companies to respond by operating in an ethical, socially responsible way. Failure to prioritize CSR can impact brand, employee loyalty and investor interest. What CSR strategies and policies promote the company’s ethical growth while driving company profit?
The presentation will offer insight into the social, political, environmental, economic and political crises facing the business world today. Recent corporate scandals will be highlighted, detailing the damage sustained by the business including brand impact.
