As part of CRF’s research for our upcoming Masterclass on Responsible Business, we asked HR and Corporate Responsibility professionals about their perception of the drivers of responsibility in their organisation.

One of the conclusions of CRF’s upcoming research on Responsible Business is that organisations face a number of challenges on the transformational journey to becoming one. These challenges include gaining leadership buy-in, collaborating effectively across functional boundaries, embedding the responsibility mindset into the organisational culture, and narrowing the gap between good intentions on responsibility and actions undertaken. We find that the HR function is poised to maximise its contribution to the business by supporting colleagues to overcome many of these challenges; however, the HR function’s contribution to Responsible Business appears to be limited, thus far.
