Corporate Social Responsibility at Department of Social Services

6.8
6.8 rating for Corporate Social Responsibility, based on 31 reviews
What projects/initiatives does your employer run and what have you worked on personally?
There is vague talk about this and in some areas (notably Women's Safety) we're alright but the rank and file seem to view corporate responsibility as an unnecessary hurdle.
DSS is responsibility for a large number of national initiatives associated with social responsibility. Due to the breadth of the portfolio staff are made aware of project and initiatives through events and internal communications. I have had personal involvement with a large number of these, including White Ribbon Day, NAIDOC week, and National Families Week.
The Department is not 'for profit' therefore, I don't think CSR holds the same emphasis in the Commonwealth as it does for the private sector
