Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been practised by companies large and small throughout Ireland for many years. It is evidenced in the support by businesses for local clubs and charities, in the provision of workplace training and employment opportunities, in good workplace practices and in businesses’ impact on the environment.
In many cases these activities are simply part of how companies engage on a daily basis with their customers, their staff or their local communities. The Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation (DJEI) sees CSR and responsible business practices as being key to the reputation and success of Irish businesses in an increasingly competitive environment.
DJEI has commissioned Research Matters, a Tipperary based research company, to carry out a baseline study of the extent of these good practices across Irish businesses. This research will contribute to the preparation by DJEI of Ireland’s second National Plan on CSR.
As part of this research businesses are being asked to complete a questionnaire which should take no more than ten minutes of your time.
