In CSR there is always the dilemma that while serving society and other stakeholders one is doing so at the expense of investors whose money is being used for CSR. This sometimes makes companies half-hearted about their CSR. The solution to this lies in doing CSR that works for both society and business so that investors get some benefit from their investment in CSR. A program that works for both society and business enables companies to be more committed to their CSR. If the workshop is successful then it will encourage the company to increase their investment in CSR.
Branding & Communication: The central driving force of most evolved businesses is their brand. Branding drives value in many areas of the organization such as marketing, HR etc. and strengthening the brand has far reaching effects.
Internationally many companies align their CSR with their brand as a means of brand building. In India companies have started aligning their CSR with their brand and communicating this to their stakeholders. There however is a large knowledge gap in this space that needs to be addressed urgently. An Evolving Requirement: As companies look at CSR to build and strengthen their brand, it is important for CSR Heads to understand how CSR can impact their brand internally and externally.
Branding is not only about promotion or communication but even about the company’s processes and beliefs. There are many issues to be considered from what CSR should be done, in what manner, how it can impact the brand internally and externally and whether it should be communicated or not and if so how.
Who Is This Relevant To? : This one day workshop will be relevant to companies who want to align their CSR with their brand and get maximum branding advantage from their CSR programs. In doing so they will be able to help their business without compromising on the great work they do for society.
