About the course

This one day course answers the questions ‘what is CR?’ and ‘Why is it important?’ It provides shortcuts through the plethora of corporate responsibility (CR) advice, and give you a chance to reflect on what is important for your company.

This specialised workshop has been designed and facilitated by Business in the Community’s most experienced staff, including Stephen Farrell, Training & Development Associate. On the day, Stephen will be joined by expert company speakers who will showcase their experiences in integrating their CSR strategies.


BITC Members: £350 + VAT
Non BITC members: £490 + VAT

Discounts are available to SME’s with less than 250 employees (subject to availability), to book or to reserve a place on a future course please contact Natasha Jupiter.

Who should attend?

The course is aimed at people new to corporate responsibility, who may be taking this on as a new part of their job, and for those with wider responsibility who want a better understanding of what CR means to their business.

Benefits and learning outcomes

  • Understanding the benefits to your business of being responsible;
  • Scoping out what corporate responsibility means for your company;
  • Practical techniques for getting internal buy-in from the top to the bottom of the company;
  • Useful tools and approaches to manage and measure CR activities
  • Understanding the different governance systems that can enable CR
  • How to communicate and highlight the business benefits of corporate responsibility

The course was both enjoyable and informative, and I left very excited about organising and applying a programme for my organisation. It provided the opportunity to speak to other professionals involved in CR, from all sorts of businesses, both those who were more experienced or starting out as I am. It provided practical ideas about how to decide on the best course of action for my organisation, and how to gain support throughout the company. Since attending I have managed to develop a Corporate Responsibility model for the company, to show internally and externally what we are doing and the predicted impact. This will raise the profile for CR as something that the company is serious about.
