This one-day workshop will help you teach participants how to:
- Define sustainability and social responsibility
- Discuss the principles of social responsibility in business

You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
What is Corporate Social Responsibility?
Corporate social responsibility can be defined in many ways. This session will give students a grasp on what it is and how it can fit into a business. A business case for corporate social responsibility is a good place to start and that is discussed here along with ways to frame your business case. The session also covers the pre-assignment.
Creating a Corporate Social Responsibility Program
Once your students have a grasp on what corporate social responsibility is, then it’s time to move on to creating a program at their workplace. Implementing a program will benefit from using a project management approach and this session showcases different areas of a project by, including the project vision, project plan, engaging stakeholders, implementation tips, and measurement and reporting tools.
Corporate Social Responsibility Principles
This session shows how a system for sustainability eases the transition for all the parties involved. Here, students will discuss the ISO 26000 sustainability framework: due diligence, human rights, organizational governance and ethics, operating practices, and labor practices.
Environmental Awareness and Sustainability
Environmental issues are often a large part of a corporate social responsibility project. This session takes students through these issues from the perspectives of creating community, managing consumer issues, and building community involvement.
At the end of the course, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
In Person Training
The traditional classroom style of training remains our Most Popular and Most Requested format. On-site training provides participants with an in-person facilitator who will work directly with the team, whether for a single training session or a training series. The Mainstream team will craft and tailor your experience to ensure that your training session is specific, relevant and unique to your audience while meeting your learning objectives. Why settle for ‘pre-formatted, pre-scripted, one-size fits all’ training programs, when our team is able to customize a program that is just right for you? We know that every team has unique learning needs, situations and that they come from a variety of industries, each having unique customer needs and demands. Our programs can be scaled to accommodate time restraints, unique learning needs and even industry or company nuances and barriers.
Don’t settle for a program that gives you almost what you need; our team wants to give you Exactly what you need.
Delivering traditional onsite training results …virtually!
We’ve officially changed the rules and redefined what is possible in the world of soft skills learning. Our unique technology, accompanied by honed delivery methodology, have successfully replicated the traditional classroom-style training environment, allowing it to exist online.
Most online training solutions limit participants’ responses to keystrokes or to single person conversations because -with inferior technology- group discussions become distorted and confusing to follow. Our Virtual Room has eliminated those barriers and encourages learning through meaningful instructor feedback, skills modelling and engaging group discussion, without visual or audio distortion
The Virtual Room is for any organization seeking a flexible substitute to traditional onsite training; whether to lower costs, eliminate unnecessary travel or to simply ease the burden of demanding work schedules.
Lunch & Learn
A Lunch and Learn session is an onsite or virtual learning program with a facilitator-led session sharing valuable information and skills on an area of identified learning interest. It’s a great break away from a traditional training program, allowing your team the opportunity to learn while enjoying their lunch. Due to the limited time, the program focuses on specific learning concepts and skills. It is an interactive session that quickly targets and reveals learning objectives that are predetermined by the training organizer. Lunch & Learn sessions are also great as a training series, providing progressive learning programs for developing skills in a ‘bite-sized’ format.
