  • Share Holder VS Stakeholders

    In the field of sustainable management, it is no longer a question of pitting "shareholders" against "stakeholders", but rather of creating a synergy 🤝. "Shareholders" and "stakeholders" have a common interest: to ensure sustainable and profitable growth for the company and for themselves 🌱💰. Small reminder: the "stakeholders" (or stakeholders) include employees, unions, customers, consumers, suppliers, subcontractors, service providers, financial partners, local communities, public authorities, and all other entities impacted by the company’s activities 🏭. In this key transition period that brings us to new business models, it is essential for leaders to understand the importance of consulting their stakeholders when making decisions 🤔. When a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) strategy is implemented, stakeholder consultation is an integral part of the overall management process 💼. But why is stakeholder consultation so important in sustainable management models? 1️⃣ Creation of shared value: companies that involve their stakeholders in their decision-making processes are better able to create value for all stakeholders 👥. 2️⃣ Strengthening the company brand: a good relationship with stakeholders improves the company’s image and strengthens its reputation, a valuable intangible asset 💪. 3️⃣ Innovation and competitiveness: dialogue with stakeholders helps to better understand their needs and expectations, and thus to develop innovative products and services that meet them 🚀. 4️⃣ Anticipation of risks: stakeholder consultation also makes it possible to identify and anticipate the social, environmental and economic risks that the company could face. This improves the sustainability of the company and reassures customers and investors 🛡️. 5️⃣ Identification and involvement: when companies take into account the opinion of their stakeholders, it creates a sense of appreciation. The result is an increased commitment, making these entities more invested and loyal to the company, with positive repercussions on its stability and profitability 📈. 6️⃣ Regulatory compliance: many regulations require companies to take into account the social and environmental impacts of their business. Stakeholder consultation is therefore an effective way to ensure compliance 📜. 📢 I invite you, dear decision-makers, to fully embrace this approach and to make your stakeholders your best allies in building a sustainable and prosperous future 🌎.

  • CSR explained to my Grandmother

    The general public is not yet fully familiar with the concept of CSR … 🤷‍♂️ This is to justify my hook and my content which may seem a little simplistic for the specialists… , they excuse me in advance 🙏 🚀 So today we’re talking about #CSR, or Corporate Social Responsibility. ❓But what is CSR? CSR refers to the practices and strategies by which companies voluntarily decide to contribute to social welfare and environmental protection, going beyond legal requirements. 🎯 CSR Core Objectives: 🌱 Ecological: Minimize the environmental impact (reduction of carbon emissions, sustainable use of resources, etc.). 🤝 Social: Commit to the well-being of employees and communities (working conditions, equality, inclusion). 🏢 Economic: Ensure the viability and growth of the company while being ethical and transparent. 🌐 Why is it so important? Positive contribution: Companies play a crucial role in sustainable development by optimizing their impact on society and the environment. Trust and image: CSR practices strengthen consumer, partner and investor confidence in brands. Innovation and competitiveness: It inspires innovation and opens up new market opportunities. Talent attraction: Employees are increasingly looking for meaning in their work, making engaged companies a preferred choice. 🔍 Business Impact: 🔄 Adaptation: Companies that adopt a robust CSR strategy are often better able to adapt to market changes and stakeholder expectations. 📈 Financial performance: Several studies show a link between financial performance and CSR commitment. 🚦 Risk management: It identifies and minimizes risks related to social and environmental issues. 👉 Icing on the cake!

  • Health-Safety and CSR, a passionate story!

    As you know, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is eager for promises, but be careful, we must not "tell her" it… Even if his heart is in the stratosphere (very close to greenhouse gases ☹), his feet are well on earth. It strives to make a better life for humans, and especially for those who work there and regularly expose themselves to multiple and varied risks. In its brief, CSR gives pride of place to «good work practices», and if there is one that stands out for its vital necessity, it is «Health and Safety» in our workplaces (for insiders we talk about #HSE, #EHS, #QSE.. which incorporate an additional environmental dimension). This is called an HSE approach. The HSE concept encompasses practices and policies aimed at ensuring a safe, healthy and environmentally friendly working environment. By ensuring the safety and health of its employees, the company demonstrates its responsibility to them and helps create a climate of trust and loyalty. The HSE approach requires a regular risk assessment of the company’s activities and the implementation of appropriate preventive measures. This also includes compliance with applicable health, safety and environmental regulations and standards. By complying with legal requirements and proactively managing risks, the company demonstrates its commitment to ethics and strengthens its credibility with all stakeholders. And it is precisely here that the idyll between HSE and CSR begins: Ethical approach, Strategy, Awareness, Training, Actions, Results, and Key Performance Indicator (KPI), which can be clearly integrated into an extra-reportingfinancial or a CSR report (which contributes to the improvement of the ESG score). Many companies are already carrying out a large number of concrete actions in terms of Health, Safety and Environment and yet do not have the right tools to turn them into measurable arguments, readable and practically usable to their advantage in terms of CSR communication. Do not hesitate to surround yourself with experts to seal the sacred union between HSE and CSR, who will help you in the publication of bans and offer the young couple a beautiful and long way full of promise and future… I stand at your disposal to write the rest of the story together! #rse#esg#iso26000#santesecurite#hse

  • TO BE OR NOT TO BE... Les soft skills !

    Soft skills, another anglicism!? And yet, even if the meaning approaches it, it must be admitted that it is a little more «fun» than «human skills» 😊 Small reminder of the definition for the uninitiated: «Soft skills» are transversal skills, which represent a set of personal, social, communicational and emotional skills, that each has and uses in its interactions with others. They complement the «hard skills» which are the crucial technical skills in the operation of companies since they embody the foundation of know-how and expertise. In the professional world, soft skills are increasingly valued. While technical skills can be acquired through training and experience, soft skills are harder to develop and therefore increasingly sought by employers. They enable everyone to work effectively as a team, manage stress and conflict, adapt to new situations and solve problems creatively. They also play a central role in project leadership and management, including the ability to motivate teams and effectively communicate their visions and goals, and of course in making (good) decisions. The employee who presents a profile with developed soft skills is a rare pearl for the company! Never let go… You have understood, to hide too much behind his diploma we risk being unmasked! In the age of AI and chatbot, human skills are and will be more than ever a future value for companies. The soft skills culture is very naturally integrated into the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) approach, by what it brings in terms of efficiency and quality of life at work. O-360, which offers «professional solutions dedicated to attitude changes», cultivates soft skills and will be able to show you its attention, listen to you and offer you (very) innovative support solutions in this area. #SOFTSKILLS#CSR # #ESG#change management

  • Sustainable development and CSR, the end of the effects of announcements?

    Our companies have become accustomed to communicating with indescribable ease their CSR actions, and this could previously satisfy the need for a respectable image. It was enough to say it to make it credible… Now it will have to be demonstrated! Investors finance companies and projects with tangible CSR criteria, and the phenomenon is growing exponentially. An example among many others, BlackRock, the largest investment management company in the world (9'000 billion assets under management) finances companies with an ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) score high, including Microsoft, Unilever or Patagonia… While we may attribute virtuous intentions, make no mistake about it, the adoption of sustainable and responsible practices has a positive impact on the financial performance and long-term competitiveness of companies. And it is the same for many investors and decision-makers, the criteria for awarding public or private contracts give pride of place to companies that are able to show credible commitments in this area. This is the end of the «announcement effects» and «measures», companies (large groups and SMEs) must demonstrate their willingness to change their matrix by adopting a governance mode in line with the expectations of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). It’s no longer an option, it’s a matter of survival! The development of specialized standards and measurement tools provide concrete elements to optimize CSR performance, according to 7 fundamental principles established according to the ISO 26'000 standard (which I will detail later) The system is based on planning evaluation criteria specific to the company’s activity, action, verification and corrective adaptation. The approach affects all employees, suppliers, subcontractors, customers and the surrounding society. The whole is measurable at all times and transcribed via KPIs (Key Performance Indicators). But beyond the form, it is the spirit of the approach that is interesting, since it invites everyone, at all levels of the hierarchy, to consider their own actions, because all the functions of the company are involved: Management, HR, Finance, HSE, Production, Quality… Don’t kid yourself, to win new markets, you’re going to have to go ahead with a clear cut in CSR and show a determination that will win over investors, customers, and new talent… 😊 If these statements echo and awaken your ambitions, I am at your disposal to tell you about the solutions we put at your service.
