Last October, CSR Asia partnered with the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund (SIE Fund) to deliver six one-day workshops on Creating Shared Value, that introduced core principles, how they can be put into practice, and best practice examples from across the region. Over 70 organisations benefited from the workshops, and over 100 people participated in the immersion visits that provided first-hand experience of some of Hong Kong’s most pressing social and environmental issues. Back by popular demand, the SIE Fund has commissioned a second round of capacity building activities, including workshops, immersion visits and one-on-one coaching, in Q4 2018. Read on to find out more about each of the activities and why you should sign up.

What is Shared Value?

Shared Value is an approach to doing business, popularised Harvard Business School professor Michael Porter, in which companies align business objectives with solving social challenges. It is a model that allows businesses to realise innovation and growth potential by treating social problems as business opportunities; maximising their competitive advantage while simultaneously creating value for society.

Round two: One-day workshops
CSR Asia will offer an additional six one-day workshops, to provide companies in Hong Kong with targeted training in Shared Value principles. To cater for companies at different stages of understanding and implementation of shared value principles, the workshops will be offered at two different levels: introductory (Shared Value 101), and advanced (Shared Value Implementation and Impact Measurement). 

 

A close up of a logo  Description generated with very high confidence The Shared Value 101 workshops are designed for businesses that want a more in depth understanding of Shared Value principles, and how they can be integrated into business. The workshop aims to continue to strengthen understanding of Shared Value and dispel misconceptions and misinterpretations. The workshops are designed to outline the principles of Shared Value, demonstrate best practice and allow participants to start thinking about their own project design. An emphasis is put on ways in which businesses can contribute to social innovations needed to tackle many of the challenges that remain in Hong Kong.
