Implementing a successful CSR strategy - Henry Group (video)
Henry Group is one of Northern Ireland's top construction and civil engineering companies. The Group employs more than 500 people with operations across the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
As one of the leaders in the industry, the Group places its commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) at the core of its business.
Here, corporate responsibility director Ian Henry and Jennifer Cruickshank from the corporate responsibility team share their experiences of implementing a CSR strategy in their business.
They describe how they've engaged with employees on social responsibility projects and how these initiatives benefitted the local community and their business as a whole.
Ian's top tips:
- "Look to your workforce for feedback and ideas and encourage them to get involved with CSR initiatives."
- "You have to be prepared to be in it for the long haul and to engage with a lot of different communities and people."
- "Work with other companies to see how they handle their CSR activities. Gain experience and get ideas from them."
