-Building your strategy around your company’s core competencies

-CSR programs to protect and grow your biggest asset - your employees

-Examples of how local businesses are using CSR to achieve competitive advantage -Including how One Community are supporting local business Core Facility Services with their ambitious CSR plans

-Explore and expand your company’s definition of CSR.
