Sometimes I get asked whether you have to get a job in CSR to make a contribution – and the answer to that is absolutely not.
You want to succeed in your career, but you also want to make a difference, to do the right thing, to live life according to your own values. Should be easy, right?
You’re about to enter the job market, and you’ve heard all about corporate social responsibility and you know it’s what you want to do.
Since companies started getting serious about corporate social responsibility and sustainability, people internally have been doing their best to get the big bosses on board.
According to some surveys, more young people want to work for companies that have values, firms that make a difference to the world above and beyond satisfying customers. But it isn’t a one-way street.
If you’re an ambitious young professional, determined to move up the ladder and to succeed, you’re not going to go against the prevailing culture of the place where you work.
Limited time is a fact we share – limited respect is a choice all of your own
If you want to take your values to work with you every day, an obvious place to aim for is the corporate social responsibility department of a major company.
