Corporate Social Responsibility Certificate Online
Corporate Social Responsibility has become an increasingly relevant aspect of a business. It differs from philanthropy in that CSR should align with core business elements and become part of the company culture. Leaders and employees are all involved and invested, and it should be a planned and documented program. This Introduction to CSR Strategy with an SDG Framework helps you achieve that.
What You’ll Learn
- CSR and Philanthropy Defined
- Identify a company’s core business elements
- Get to know the UN’s SDG Framework for the implementation of a CSR Program
- Differentiate between CSR and Philanthropy
- Identify stakeholders and understand their needs
- Develop a CSR Program linked to the SDG Framework
Introduction to CSR Strategy with a SDG Framework Description
In this introductory CSR SDG course, learners are given an in-depth and practical understanding of CSR and how it differs from philanthropy. Core business elements are identified using Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle.
Stakeholders are defined and understood, and their key roles are recognized, especially important since stakeholders are at both ends of the spectrum of a CSR program. The UN’s SDG framework is introduced as a useful tool when developing a CSR strategy and for enhancing a program that is already in place, especially to benchmark what initiatives are applicable and have proved to be successful.
