-The 2013 conference agenda-

The European Club for Human Resources (ECHR) in partnership with Edenred, CSR Europe and the European Economic and Social Committee are pleased to invite you to the conference

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is more and more used to evaluate a company. CSR is usually linked to environmental matters and society and also deals with the respect of social norms and working conditions within companies. What may be the role of executive Human Resources (HR) in the vision and implementation of CSR?

The event aims at better understanding CSR, its application within companies including the role of the HR in this process, evolution of CSR and alternative approaches to evaluating CSR in a company.
