The forum for effective engagement of large companies

Corporate Citizenship Working Group

What do companies achieve that are involved in social engagement? Which methods are suitable for the creative development and long-term planning of engagement programs? And how can their impact be further enhanced?

These and other questions are being discussed by the Corporate Citizenship Working Group, which is led by PHINEO and unites dedicated large companies wanting to strategically position their corporate engagement.

PHINEO highlights relevant topics and developments. It also outlines proven approaches, methods and practical examples of Corporate Citizenship and impact orientation in the nonprofit sector.

Project partners: several large companies & corporations | Duration: since 2013, annual new edition
