BorneoPost : Leading the path in environmental CSR PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 03 March 2015 09:54

In Sarawak alone, there is an abundance of CSR programmes in both environmental and human development categories as many companies take up the responsibility to develop the local community and take care of the environment for future generations. As such, all eyes are always on corporations and what programmes they are undertaking to conserve the environment — this is especially so for oil and gas giants such as Shell Malaysia (Shell) and Malaysia LNG Group of Companies (MLNG).

triplepundit : Will Corporate Social Responsibility Adapt or Die? PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 27 February 2015 12:11

We’ve seen enough case studies to know that CSR makes financial, as well as social and environmental sense. We also know that not adopting CSR will ultimately lead to business disaster.

So why isn’t CSR working? The obvious answer is that our current business model isn’t conducive to creating the radical change that’s needed to restore our planet’s health.

"Quotes"

CSR is often somewhat ghettoized inside corporations, off playing in a sandbox of
its own at the margins of the business.

Much of the reason for this is that the CSR professionals (myself included) have
not done a good job of helping corporate divisions like Finance, Engineering,
Operations, R&D, etc. to understand why CSR is important for them.

triplepundit : Benetton Finally Agrees to Contribute to Rana Plaza Victims’ Fund PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 26 February 2015 14:24

It has been almost two years since the Rana Plaza factory collapse outside of Dakka, Bangladesh. The disaster was not only the worst accident to hit the global garment industry, but it was also the deadliest structural accident in human history. It may have fallen out of memory for many consumers, but not for the families and friends of the 1,134 killed and about 2,000 more injured; many of the survivors endured harrowing experiences in order to escape the eight-story factory collapse. At least 29 companies were tied to Rana Plaza, including Walmart, Mango, The Children’s Place, Primark and Benetton, the Italy-based fashion house.

techrepublic : Corporate social responsibility activities serve as effective IT retention tool in India PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 23 February 2015 17:21

Corporate social responsibility is turning out to be the surprising tool for IT companies in India to retain employees. These programs are also linked to improved job performance.

 

Cognizant, the Teaneck, NJ-headquartered IT services firm with 200,000 employees and the bulk of its development operations in India, found that its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs motivate employees to perform better in the workplace. A survey revealed that over half of Cognizant's employees volunteering in various CSR programs displayed improved workplace performance. Nearly all of them felt their activities created a sense of pride about their employer as well as their teams.

The IT sector in India, a country with the world's largest numbers of citizens living in poverty as well as millions of undernourished children, is seen to be furthering the wealth divide. Even as its entrepreneur billionaires and its well-paid workers are under increasing public scrutiny, IT firms have raced to undertake meaningful CSR programs to fulfil ethical obligations and salve their social conscience.
