The Centre for Corporate Responsibility (CCR) of the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS) has held its first corporate social responsibility (CSR) Training Programme.

The Programme was held last week at the Executive Hall of the UGBS under the topic “Hindering & Promoting Factors of CSR Practice”.

Facilitators included Mr. Yaw Asokwa-Nkansah, an Associate of the CCR and Dr. Dan Ofori, Coordinator of the CCR and also a Senior Lecturer and Head of the Department of Organisation & HRM of the UGBS.

 Dr. Ofori explained that the Centre aims to equip managers with the skills and outlook to put sustainability and responsibility at the heart of their operations by integrating CSR behaviour within organisations.

He said the centre will continue to be guided by its mission to create a new generation of business leaders that were knowledgeable about and committed to Corporate Social Responsibility, by inspiring current and future managers with the passion for responsible corporate leadership.

On his part, Mr. Yaw Asokwa-Nkansah reiterated the need for firms to adopt sound principles that promote CSR and endeavour to avoid traps that hinder the implementation of CSR-friendly business principles.

The Training Programme was attended by over 30 participants drawn from various private, public and non-governmental organisations.

The CCR was established under a cooperation agreement between the UGBS and the Centre for Cooperation with the Private Sector, (CCPS) of GIZ, South Africa.
