HOME RISE NEW TEAM →| -  Member Since: Aug 2008
everybody has mentioned number of ideas and seems very fruitfull. what we need to understand is that CSR is an ongoing activity and required regular support of the employees and mangement. I am sure the moment you start involving your people for CSR the new ideas will flow automatically. You need to educate ppl within the organisation first the objective of having this initative and belive me this will take much of your time.
All the very best!

Dear Sheela/Bhavana,
Please note that the philanthropic responsibility is at the apex of the pyramid of CSR.The CSR pyramid begins with economic responsibilities at the base followed by legal & ethical responsibilities with philantropic responsibilities at the top. So,Philantropy is a major part of CSR.

1) Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR)
2) philanthropic activities.

CSR means...

Social responsibility becomes an integral part of the wealth creation process - which if managed properly should enhance the competitiveness of business and maximise the value of wealth creation to society.

whereas Philanthrophy is... The effort or inclination to increase the well-being of humankind, as by charitable aid or donations.

When times get hard, there is the incentive to practice CSR more and better.

if it is a philanthropic exercise which is peripheral to the main business, it will always be the first thing to go when push comes to shove.

Dear Bhavna,

The first principle is "Charity begins at home". Look inward - are your employees being taken care of properly. Are their children pursuing the "right" education, is the health of the employee's family in a good state - a healthy employee results in low abseentism, higher productivity. Conduct a rapid assessment, devise a thorough strategy, allocate a budget with incremental revisions so that you don't have to cut down, devise a strategy for sustaining the activity so that it does not become a one-off initiative. Just ensure that this activity does not get politicised - internally or externally.

Then look outwards to other communities.

With best regards.

Hi Bhavna,

It's really nice to know about your interest and efforts. Everyone has contributed wonderfully in sharing various possible initiatives. I would like to add that your orgn could possible look at the angle of women empowerment at the nearest village. It could possible be through education, giving vocational training like sewing etc and basing on the success donate sewing machines. If the village has an electricity or water problem, required measures could be taken. Bore well, water harvesting etc. Try giving employment to the youth, job encentives at completing a level of education etc.

Do let us know how your orgn moves in this direction.
