Title Pool of training elements on CSR and purchasing practices
Product Type modules
This pool of training elements and experience sharing of FLA on purchasing
practices were at the basis of the transfer and formed a solid foundation for the
development of the RESPECT innovative approach and vocational training
that supports it. It is also a precious source of information and training resources for stakeholders and RESPECT community that are interested in specific aspects of CSR.
Various academic elements have been pulled together to form a body of knowledge. This sum of CSR knowledge forms the project's foundation, which the RESPECT project partners can use to build their developments. In addition to this, various academic and training materials have been considered to contribute to the RESPECT project's pool of training elements:
- CSR courses at FBS: FBS is a business school that has worked for 12 years on issues of sustainable development and CSR. The school is constantly developing related training content for Masters, MBA and PhD programs. These elements address both social and environmental issues of CSR;
- CSR courses from academic Partners and Universities: FBS has developed a number of partnerships with international universities in the field of sustainable development and CSR. This has allowed FBS to benefit from the expertise of these institutions and bring various theoretical and practical knowledge to the RESPECT project;
- CSR books and academic articles: researchers at FBS regularly publish national and international articles and books as part of a research laboratory dedicated to CSR, business ethics and sustainable development. These research publications have been very useful to better understand the issues tackled by the RESPECT project;
- HERMES’ project materials: the previous Leonardo HERMES project, on which part of the transfer is based, developed CSR training courses for companies and human resources directors of small and medium sized enterprises. HERMES brought together useful knowledge through pilot testing of those courses on real professional actors.
Finally, the professional experience of each partner and the studies carried out by the FLA on purchasing practices has brought specific knowledge to support the RESPECT pool of training elements.
