Can businesses still do CSR during COVID-19?
With the UK tightening measures to stem the spread of COVID-19 following an increase in infections, the Legal Spectrum Podcast series visits the role of business in the community.
Jobs versus communities?
Charities have been hit hard by the onset of COVID-19, while many businesses will understandably be weighing up whether they can continue to support their local communities.
And as the pandemic persists, the resultant global downturn is predicted to be considerably worse than the last recession.
How important is your local community?
So what does this mean for charities? Does traditional corporate social responsibility still have a role to play in making our communities better? And how can businesses continue to make a difference?
