Project background

Every organization somehow influences the society. This includes influence to the health, well-being and life in general of employees and their relatives, influence on environment, cooperating organizations and various stakeholders, including customers or consumers, workers and their trade unions, members, the community, nongovernmental organizations etc.

The two year project SOCIRES (Social Responsibility Manager) will contribute to the raising of the awareness of all types of organizations in this area and to the increase of competence level on labour market.

Main goal of this project is to prepare vocational and e-learning course, exam and certification, which will be targeted to managers in organizations. Currently, trainees and trainers are being educated how to analyze and define social influences and responsibilities of an organization. Since standard ISO 26000 has been approved, this topic became very interesting on the market. Along ISO9001 (quality management systems) and ISO14000 (environmental management), this standard could be the next big shift in organizational thinking and behaviour against all its stakeholders.

Using this new course, managers from Slovenia, Germany, Hungary, Greece, Spain and Austria will be taught how to find thin line between social responsibilities and economic interests of the organization.

The certification of the knowledge is EU-wide valid, under the ECQA (European Certification and Qualification Association) framework.

The ultimate aim of this project is a little bit better society for everyone by raising the awareness and the knowledge of decision-makers in the organizations.
