Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is no longer just a foot note in the day-to-day life of an organisation, but an integral aspect of HR strategy and a way to communicate a commitment to the community in which a business operates.
Not only is CSR and sustainable development gaining prominence on paper but thanks to a new initiative, right through to corporate attire as well. Not-for-profit organisation Fitted for Work provides free interview-appropriate clothing and mentoring to disadvantaged women re-entering the workforce.
On 30 March the charity will run its Dare to Wear campaign: workplaces can get involved by challenging a colleague to wear something courageous to work to reflect the courage it takes to re-enter the workforce after suffering severe setbacks. On the upcoming flagship day, you can challenge a colleague, a friend or yourself to dress up boldly, and then then sponsor the dare by offering a cash donation.
Fitted-for Work has been operating since 2005, and has provided thousands of women will the skills and clothes to get back to work.
