Corporate Social Responsibility

CSR in Cork – How your Team can work with ours

When you look up the definition of CSR you get a lot of meanings. For us at Cork Deaf Association, we believe CSR is when the companies and organisations around us, put into action their commitment to our shared community. It’s about values, ethical choices and actions that benefit society. It’s about volunteerism, inclusivity, sustainability and education.


How can CSR benefit your organisation –

  • Improve employee engagement – learn about your workforce and their families
  • Promote inclusivity and diversity in your organisation
  • Support the local community where you work
  • Create good social media and PR opportunities
  • Contribute to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals
  • Improve your brand in the local community
  • Align your brand with values of volunteerism and social responsibility
