ESG (environmental, social and governance) issues are rising up the business agenda. HR leaders and teams are ideally placed to tackle the ‘S’ in ESG, not only through their shaping of people strategies internally, but also through their role in building thriving and sustainable communities outside the organisation. Being a responsible business means doing good for communities and society more broadly, ensuring the employer is just one part of a healthy ecosystem. In many organisations, senior HR professionals are leading the charge for creating shared value across communities.
The CIPD has spoken to a number of these leaders and produced case studies around the work they are doing with communities and the role of the people profession in implementing this. Their insight and experience will inspire you to think of how your own team can contribute to the ESG agenda, building stronger communities and stronger organisations.
