Learn how to promote your organisation's contribution to society with this Advanced Corporate Social Responsibility, organized and imparted by London Corporate Training.

Is it enough for companies simply to obey the law while seeking to grow profits and increase the dividends to their shareholders? Commentators would once have said there is no such thing as corporate responsibility, beyond these limited shareholder-value driven goals.

But in the twenty-first century, board directors know the value of adopting a broader perspective – from taking account of the views and needs of all stakeholders – whether it be the communities in which a company operates, the suppliers in its supply chain, doing the right thing for their customers and employees and even benefiting society as a whole.

This two-week CSR training course takes a deep look at the full Corporate Social Responsibility portfolio. It will examine numerous current case studies of good and bad practice, as well as examining the deep historical and philosophical roots of what we now call CSR.
