The Business Case for Corporate Social Responsibility Effectiveness: Going Beyond Notions of 'Good-Bad' to Increase Shareholder Value
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 11, 2007
Interaction Associates announced that its Director of Corporate Social Responsibility Consulting and Services, Elad Levinson, will present with author Christine Arena on the topic of Corporate Social Responsibility Effectiveness in San Francisco.
"The Business Case for Corporate Social Responsibility Effectiveness: Going Beyond Notions of 'Good-Bad' to Increase Shareholder Value" will take place at the Northern California Chapter of the Association for Strategic Planning meeting, Thursday, September 20th, 2007, from 7:30 to 10:30 am at the City Club of San Francisco, 155 Sansome Street, 9th Floor, Bechtel Room, San Francisco, CA 94104.
The two experts will look at Corporate Social Responsibility as a branding advantage, a means of attracting conscious customers, and a way of complying with regulations . . . and demonstrate that none of these are particulary effective strategies.
They will examine CSR strategy as a matter of innovation, and show how it can be integrated into the regular process of Strategic Planning. And they will point to a key accelerator - collaboration -- that must be considered in designing or developing a strategic approach to CSR.
- Learn the 10 effectiveness triggers that reflect and drive CSR performance.
- See how the vital link between collaboration, innovation, and success with corporate responsibility works at companies that profit from CSR strategy.
- Discover a tool that can be used to measure collaborative capacity and capability when developing strategy for your clients.
- Understand the benefits to your clients of demonstrating responsiveness so that your clients can enjoy the benefits of CSR strategy as a competitive advantage.
