Improving Corporate CSR Program and Corporate Foundation’s Activities Through a Series of Inclusive Workshops

Kopernik assisted a global company and its foundation in improving their Corporate Social Responsibility activities through a series of participatory and strategic workshops.

  • Last Mile Consulting
  • CSR/CSV Advisory Services

THE PROBLEM

The company’s CSR programs were facing challenges of divergence as they were heavily decentralized, with different regions implementing misaligned types of CSR projects. The corporate foundation, on the other hand, was in the midst of streamlining its activities after merging a number of foundations under one umbrella.

THE SOLUTION

Kopernik facilitated a series of participatory and strategic workshops to overcome the described challenges. For the Corporate CSR team, a workshop was conducted with participation of representatives in charge of CSR activities from branches around the globe. The workshop included identification of common objectives for conducting ‘social contribution activities’ and assessment of the company’s current CSR program. Kopernik provided the participants with several frameworks and tools to conduct self-assessment of their social contribution activities.

Kopernik also conducted two workshops for the company’s newly merged foundation. The workshop was attended by all the foundation members, and reviewed challenges and opportunities for impact measurement, external communications, as well as rationalising the existing initiatives.

THE PROJECT RESULT

The company’s CSR team identified its main principles and objectives which were deemed important by employees. Through the self-assessment, employees determined the key criteria for social contributions activities that can be integrated with their projects. Based on the workshop input, participants suggested that these criteria be used in the future as a basis for selection, implementation and assessment guidelines.

The corporate foundation team increased their understanding on the basics of the impact measurement, communications, and its activities have been simplified, paving the way for the foundation to prepare for new activities in the future.
