Nov 19, 2010 CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility Examples
The big guys use this language: Corporate Social Responsibility. A commitment to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of our workforce and their families as well as the local community at large.
The little guys (like us) call it Giving Back.
Wilsonwest has put together quite a few large-scale corporate social responsibility conferences for our clients, but for the past few months, I have been helping Gateway High School, a local public charter school, to raise some much needed money. When I asked some of my industry friends to help out by donating some things to be sold at the school auction, I was overwhelmed by all the giving. Not only did they give – they gave with generosity, spirit, and more. Never underestimate the importance of social responsibility of business; here are just a few social responsibility examples that meant a lot to our team and to the Gateway High School.

THANK YOU to all of these wonderful friends in the event and hospitality world – the kids at Gateway High School are very grateful and the big guys would say you behaved quite responsibly.
