Croatia: Awarding the Greatest Businesses for their Efforts in the Field of CSR
For the 12th time, Croatian Business Council for Sustainable Development (HR BCSD), together with Croatian Chamber of Economy, is organising the CSR Index Contest. The competition awards the most successful companies in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility and is open until October 21st
With the understanding that simply good business results are no longer criteria for the success of a company, the goal of the Contest is to present and award those companies that have successfully integrated CSR into business strategies and policies.
This is supported by the fact that companies participating in the CSR Index Contest have noticeably higher business results than others; primarily because of the satisfaction of their employees. For example, the average salaries in participating companies are 23% higher, and the employees exercise some of the benefits that are above the legal requirements. Companies participating in the competition have the opportunity to self-assess their non-financial impact as well as make year-to-year comparisons in practice with other Croatian companies, especially the ones from the same industries. It is important to emphasise that the individual results are only available to companies in partially aggregated form sent to them after the Competition.
The most successful companies will be awarded on the 11th Corporate Social Responsibility Conference that will be held in the Croatian capital, Zagreb, on the 19th and 20th November of this year.
