Audience: the course is designed for ILO constituents and professionals involved with CSR and labour practices issues, such as project managers, executives and technical experts from: Enterprises of all sectors and sizes, Workers’ and employers’ organizations and Governments

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has raised a lot of attention in the last few years but it is still the subject of misconceptions namely on what it means in practice. This three-day course has been designed to provide participants with an overall understanding of the subject as well as with valuable guidelines in addressing CSR-related labour and employment issues at the workplace.

To this purpose, the ILO’s Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy (ILO MNE Declaration) will be unpacked as the main point of reference and foundation for good CSR policies and practices.

The course adopts a participative and practical approach and stimulates experience sharing among participants. More specifically, upon completing their training, participants will know how to better engage in an effective application of labour principles and will identify the challenges, experiences, processes and strategies in putting these principles into practice.
