WHAT WE DO FOR BUSINESSES

Businesses are a force for doing good.

Through their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs, businesses tap into their employees’ sense of purpose to give back to the community and create social impact. Whether it is serving meals at a soup kitchen. Participating in the Santa Claus parade. Or providing marketing or legal advice to a nonprofit.

Businesses can take their CSR strategies to the next level to achieve a competitive advantage. How? By integrating their CSR strategies with their HR leadership and development (L&D) strategies. After all, attracting, developing and retaining top talent is a key priority in most leading organizations in Canada.
