I went along to the seminar on Corporate Social Responsibility yesterday that was put on by Susie Andrade, of the Channel Island Skills Academy, and the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce. I expect it was a good introduction to the subject for many attendees but perhaps it did not go far enough. The area of CSR is one that is often misconstrued and many businesses need to be challenged on why they engage in CSR and how. More detail was needed on stressing the importance of changing the fundamental operations of a business to appropriately embrace CSR. Many use CSR to outwardly promote good practises while nothing significant really changes internally.
