Managing Corporate Community Involvement

Managing Corporate Community Involvement We should never underestimate the role that industry can play in education and the communities in which it operates. I am a firm believer in the importance of the contributions the Costain Group can make, in a variety of ways, across the educational spectrum and also believe that the involvement of employees is crucial. It is not enough, however, for companies simply to say these words. Such beliefs must be followed up with actions the hard evidence of any written or spoken commitment. It is encouraging to see the extent of our activities across the country, involving a diverse spread of Group business. But it's important to note that these activities are very strongly centred on the work we do and geographical areas in which we operate. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Education + Training Emerald Publishing

Abstract

We should never underestimate the role that industry can play in education and the communities in which it operates. I am a firm believer in the importance of the contributions the Costain Group can make, in a variety of ways, across the educational spectrum and also believe that the involvement of employees is crucial. It is not enough, however, for companies simply to say these words. Such beliefs must be followed up with actions the hard evidence of any written or spoken commitment. It is encouraging to see the extent of our activities across the country, involving a diverse spread of Group business. But it's important to note that these activities are very strongly centred on the work we do and geographical areas in which we operate.
