ISO 26000 Social Responsibility - Training Courses

In our modern world where consumers increasingly search for purpose-driven organizations, social responsibility serves as a compass to direct organizations toward a better and more ethical future. While not obligatory, social responsibility determines an organization’s reputation and affects consumer loyalty and brand value. As such, it is important for organizations to adopt social responsibilities practices, as it benefits not only the organization, but its stakeholders and the community as well. 

Some of the CSR effects on consumers and employees are provided in the statistics below:

  • 77% of consumers are driven to purchase from organizations committed to improving the world
  • 55% of consumers believe it is important for organizations to express their stance on key social, environmental, and political matters
  • 93% of employees believe organizations should prioritize leading with purpose
  • 90% of employees who work at organizations with a strong sense of purpose say they are more inspired, motivated and loyal

What is ISO 26000?

ISO 26000 is an international standard developed to provide guidance on behaving in a socially responsible way. This standard is applicable to all organizations, whose aim is to contribute to the health and wellbeing of society, regardless of their size or industry. Serving as a guidance standard, ISO 26000 helps organizations in improving their operational processes and promoting a healthy ecosystem.
