Demonstrating responsible and ethical business practices is becoming more and more crucial to winning work. Businesses that can show that they are ‘environmentally friendly’, and that they look after their employees and the communities they work with, can build a great reputation with their clients and customers, and gain that all important competitive advantage.
We believe that it shouldn’t just be the big, multinational, companies that get all the benefits from being an ethical business. Smaller companies often shy away from the words ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ (CSR). This is either because ‘corporate’ conjures up images of large, faceless organisations, or because it sounds too expensive and complicated. And we don’t blame you. With so many standards and certification schemes out there, the CSR landscape can be vast and confusing. Especially when there is also the perception that a CSR strategy will come with a hefty price tag. But, if done right, then being a responsible business needn’t cost you. In-fact, it might even save you money.
We want to share our knowledge, experience, and expertise, to help your business simplify CSR and start reaping the potential benefits. Our Managing Director Ian Nicholson, founder of Responsible Solutions and expert in business development, training, and CSR, will be presenting at the East Midlands Chamber Manufacturing and Engineering Forum on the 31st May. Ian will outline how utilising the standards and certifications already in place within your organisation can enhance business competitiveness rather than bureaucracy, and show you how you can profit from being a more ethical and responsible business.
So, don’t miss out – there are limited places available and they are going quickly!
