10th HR Showcase - A platform for organisations & CSOs / NGOs to showcase the most innovative and impactful CSR initiative/practice. Apply now to win the "Best CSR Practice Award"

Theme: Collaboration/Partnership

Societal problems are complex and cannot be tackled by any organisation working in isolation. Experience has also showed us that we cannot solve these issues just by writing out a cheque to a CSO/NGO partner. There is an urgent need for various players to collaborate; involve multiple stakeholders in solving an issue in a sustainable way.

To begin with we are looking for instances of collaboration between CSR functions and the CSOs/NGOs that they work with that have led to significant outcomes for the communities that they serve.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for successful long term collaboration between company CSR and specific CSOs/NGOs which is beyond funding. This could include working together in identification of issues to implementation covering areas such as:
  • Program design
  • Application of Technology
  • Supply chain management
  • HR processes
  • Finance processes
  • Volunteering
  • Monitoring and evaluation
  • Strategy
  • Capacity building
  • Bringing in other players – Government/academia/other NGOs
  • Any other
  • Long term would be a relationship that is at least 3+ years.

Evaluation Criteria

We would be looking at examples of long term sustained collaboration, problem identification, project design and intervention, appropriate implementation strategy wish well defined impact indicators and possible long term benefits. Lessons learned from this by company as well as CSO/NGO will help all.
