The statement ‘the only responsibility of a business is to multiply the profits’, was replaced at the beginning of the XXI century with the rule ‘the only responsibility of a business is to create values’.
It means that nowadays, businesses go beyond calculating revenue and focus on building organizational values for their stakeholders – including the employees. One of the ways to create values is through cross-cultural cooperation. WrOpenUp gives companies an opportunity for such cooperation.
The employees of international corporations located in Wrocław are the core of this cooperation. WrOpenUp gives them a chance to develop, be involved in important initiatives, integrate with the inhabitants of the city, and opportunity to share their skills and experience with the students from schools located around Wrocław to assist them in developing the competencies of the future.
What does it mean to be socially responsible?
To be responsible is to invest in human resources, environmental protection, relationships with the business environment and to inform about the aforementioned activities. Sustainable development and Corporate Social responsibility (CSR) becomes a commitment to stakeholders that is shareholders, business partners, clients, local community, employees, and public administration.
