Celebrating the Spirit of CSR at SG GSC Romania and India
Citește în continuare
In 2021, Societe Generale’s Global Solution Centres (SG GSC) in Romania and India celebrated the Spirit of CSR to increase awareness of Corporate Social Responsibility and Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) related topics.
The CSR Month in Societe Generale’s Global Solution Centres in Romania and India was imagined to revive the atmosphere and create awareness around various topics. Each week was dedicated to a specific theme to steer the focus on aspects that matter both in our personal and professional lives – health, relationships, the natural world, and the global economy. Staff across the locations participated directly and indirectly in the initiatives introduced during the month of June, 2021 by the CSR extended teams.
Our centres also observe the spirit of United Nations (UN) celebrations and have condensed activities during the month of June to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030, to ultimately secure a healthy future for our society. More than 30 events and activities were launched during the month. “From awareness sessions, to the CSR learning catalogue, Diversity and Inclusion eLearning module, introduction of the P.A.U.S.E model, the CSR Pledge, donation drives, the first of ‘SG GSC’s No-Meeting Friday’ – everything was planned to reach out to all our colleagues, to create new experiences and to appeal to our civic spirit. These activities were the very ideas of SG GSC Romania and India colleagues.” says Ioana Botezatu, CSR Head, SG GSC Romania and India.
