In a recent interview, Boris Libois, category leader of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) marketplace, laid out his plans for using ki work to develop a thriving CSR community.
"My category leadership is to manage, through a cooperative and secured way, the “CSR ethical label”. This quality of service guarantee includes the pre-selection of the suppliers by the platform. It also implies a ruling-assessment of the professionals by their clients, through the platform. Finally, the service includes a professional coaching helping the suppliers to climb up the learning curve.
This will be the added-value of the ki work CSR marketplace. A mix between a commercial brand and a open standard, intended to enhance corporate citizenship following a voluntary way and local communities sensitive approach."
Boris also explains how CSR requires a multi-dimensional approach, and that ki work and other web services can help deliver this goal.
"I address CSR from a social entrepreneurial point of view. The challenge is : “Prospering with responsibility”. CSR is important to achieve the sustainable development of companies in respect of all their stakeholders interests. This means: workers, providers, clients, customers, neighbours, natural resources and shareholders. With the Web 2.0, the stakeholders and civil society also have access to large and shared resources."
Finally, Boris also outlines how CSR consultants can benefit from being accredited experts in the CSR marketplace.
"The benefits for independent CSR experts on ki work are an easier access to large CSR projects posted by companies and lower commercial expenses to find new incomes. The second advantage is to make CSR experts brand, skills and services more visible and thus more valuable for them."
