When people register for the 2014 International Corporate Citizenship Conference, we ask them to share their greatest challenges in corporate citizenship. Once we gather that information we then plan the conference breakout sessions with these needs in mind. The panelists and practitioners leading these sessions will share their knowledge and experience to address your challenges. Here are just a few examples of what to expect:
• In our session on Engaging all employees: A guide to an inclusive portfolio, you will hear from companies who have built programs that rally their employees.
• In Using Social Media to Connect with Your Employees, you will learn how to use social media to inform, connect, share, and engage employees across all levels around your corporate citizenship efforts.
Challenge: Demonstrating your company's commitment to environmental stewardship
• Innovations in sustainability practice will focus on the latest developments and trends in sustainable business practices.
• Focus on supply chain: Addressing human rights and environmental issues will offer best practices on how to manage, report, and track upstream and downstream supply chain activities.
Challenge: Investing in education
• The session on building an education program from the ground up will present the full journey of starting, implementing, maintaining, and measuring your education program. You'll hear from speakers who have created and scaled programs to drive stronger education platforms.
Challenge: Building your company's reputation
• Tying together brand and reputation will address how your philanthropy, sustainability, and employee volunteer programs build your reputation and enhance your brand.
Challenge: Determining the ROI of your company's social investments
