Course Objective:

This course will help participants understand why corporate social responsibility is important in the public and private sectors and enable them to examine how organisational behaviour is impacted by Business Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR). The interactive training agenda will enable delegates to examine and identify good and bad business behaviour across different industrial sectors, so that they are better prepared to develop the components of a CSR action plan for their own organisations.

Participants will become more effective decision makers by examining the meaning and role of ethics in the business environment, and the social responsibility of business organizations.
