October 5 | World Affairs Council of New Hampshire | From CSR to ESG: Ensuring Success for Communities
The past several years have seen massive shifts in the world of work, as the pandemic showed that many jobs were could successfully move to remote locations, while others were required to increase health and safety measure to avoid disruptions to their production. This continues an ongoing trend of technological change, which has exacerbated the inequality in the current structure of work. With technology creating change at a faster rate than ever, companies embracing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) principals in the workplace, and governments working to leverage comparative advantages and limit disruptions to their own economies, now is the time to look at the future of work.
Kevin Cassidy, Director and Representative to the Bretton Woods and Multilateral Organizations at the International Labour Organization (ILO), will join the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire for an insightful discussion on how corporations, workers, and governments can come together to ensure success for corporations and communities. Leaning on the success of the ILO's tripartite (government, workers, and business leaders) structure, he will provide the audience with key insights into how these three levels can come together to build positive relationships and create new solutions that will benefit the entire community.
This program brings together community leaders who are interested in creating the conditions necessary for human centered workplaces. Members of the public, business leaders, government policy makers, and anyone concerned with a strong and functioning economy will find positive insights from attending this program.
Audience members have the opportunity to engage with this program both in-person and online. After the event, a recording of the discussion will be made available.
