Website of the week:

The words ‘corporate social responsibility’ are often guiltily put to the
back of an HR professional’s mind. We all know how important CSR is, but
embarking on a CSR programme can seem like a major task. The website from CSR
and sustainable development consultancy Article 13, provides a good one-stop
shop for HR professionals who want to make their company more ethically-minded
but don’t have much time to do it. As well as news, features, briefing papers,
best practice case studies and a useful jargon-buster, you can download two
questionnaires to help you assess the situation in your organisation and its
strengths and weaknesses. Information is simply and clearly presented and it
provides a list of all the main trade bodies and institutes relating to CSR. If
you want to start immediately, click the carbon neutral link that will point
you in the right direction for offsetting your contribution to CO2 emissions.
At the moment, you can take out a two-month free trial to the service
(registering requests minimum information and takes seconds) or there is an
opportunity to obtain a 10 per cent reduction on the £350 annual subscription.
And in case you are wondering, Article 13 takes its name from an agreement at
the 1992 Rio Earth Summit that called on businesses to help educate and change
people’s attitudes and behaviour towards the environment.
