Shirley Parsons first to become CSR Re-accredited with a Silver
It is with great pleasure that I can present a short interview with Shirley Parsons. Shirley talks about their CSR Accreditation and we are delighted to announce that they are the first business to achieve a CSR Re-accreditation.
Shirley Parsons is a global professional services firm with expertise in Health & Safety, Quality, Sustainability and Business. They are keen to demonstrate the importance of showing their staff and customers that they take being a responsible business very seriously. The CSR Accreditation has provided them with a holistic framework to help them do just that.
What is CSR Accrediation?
Achieving CSR Accreditation is a visible testimony of excellence in Social Responsibility .
The accreditation helps you integrate social, environmental, ethical, human rights and consumer concerns into your business operations and strategy.
The establishment of a CSR Accreditation is a crucial component of a company’s competitiveness and something that should be led by the business itself. For companies, the overall aim is to achieve a positive impact on society as a whole while maximising the creation of shared value for the owners of the business, its employees, shareholders and stakeholders.
CSR Accreditation is an effective way to benchmark what you are already doing with regard to social responsibility. It is a process in which you collate, measure and report on your organisation’s socially responsible activities. An accreditation will also provide you with a roadmap for planning future activity. The Accreditation application process provides a simple and straightforward template where you can record activity against the Social Responsibility Four Pillars of environment, workplace, community and philanthropy. Each Social Responsibility Pillar is designed to help you impact report on areas such as energy performance, recycling, staff engagement, health and well-being, community engagement and supporting local and national charities.
