Figures released by the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR, in its latest Global Trends report showed that 65.3 million people — or one person in 113 — were displaced from their homes by conflict and persecution in 2015.

Driving innovation through diversity

diversity CSC Blogs

Back in the spring, I blogged about the importance of diversity within organizations, citing research that revealed the linear relationship between racial and ethnic diversity and the financial performance of an organization. But of course, diversity is about more than gender, ethnicity and race, which is why I recently caught up with my colleague Candace […]

Rethinking work with an agile approach

Regular readers will remember that last year I blogged about my conversation with fellow CSCer David Guin, who’s responsible for our global workplace strategy. David explained how a new agile office strategy, which seeks to maximize the square footage of a building and prevent waste, has helped to reduce CSC’s property portfolio by around a quarter over […]

Leading for success – with pride

This week CSC released its 2016 Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Report and 2016 GRI G4 Report.

Are you using industry awards to their full potential?

Awards CSC Blogs

When CSCers in India give up their weekends to volunteer for local community projects, I very much doubt that winning an award for their efforts is front of mind. Whether it’s mentoring young people, setting up computer labs in rural villages, planting trees or getting involved with blood donation drives, people volunteer because they care […]

Corporate Responsibility and blogging CSC Blogs

As anyone working in Corporate Responsibility (CR) will know, the annual CR report rolls around with a regularity that often makes you wonder if there’s something wrong with the calendar. No sooner have you heaved a huge sigh of relief that another report has been successfully delivered than planning for the next one begins. The […]

Do busy people have time for the environment?

I have a lot of sympathy for people whose work involves cold sales. Whether they’re knocking on doors to sell conservatories, stopping people in the street to ask for charitable donations or picking up the phone to call prospects, engaging people is a challenge. Whether you’re selling a product or an idea, the first hurdle […]

Today, as we celebrate Earth Day around the globe, over 160+ represented countries and the European Union will come together to sign up to the Paris Agreement for climate change in New York. It’s the 46th annual Earth Day, a global movement that’s dedicated to inspiring and motivating people to take action in order to […]

Winning through diversity

Whether it’s within an ecosystem, a social system or an organization, the idea that diversity matters is a given, but there is now compelling evidence that diversity makes sound financial sense. A recent study by McKinsey’s revealed that companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are 35 percent more likely to have […]
