Promoting team cohesion and collaborative performance while strengthening employees' social, environmental and economic awareness: that's what a CSR Team Building approach is all about. But how do you go from theory to practice? Let's discover together the importance of CSR Team Building and the ideal activities to give meaning to your employees.

What is CSR: Definition

According to the European Commission, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is "the voluntary integration by enterprises of social and environmental concerns in their business operations and in their interaction with their stakeholders". It is based on three main pillars:

- Society
- the economy
- the environment

In practical terms, the aim of CSR is to see every company adapt its operations to adopt more ethical and responsible practices that are more in line with the objectives of sustainable development.

What is CSR Team Building?

CSR Team Building is part of this strategy. through sports, fun, educational or creative activities, it raises awareness by placing people and the environment at the heart of projects that create links.

How can you strengthen your CSR approach through Team Building?

CSR Team Building is a practical way of improving collective well-being by consolidating links between employees, while raising the group's awareness of environmental, social and economic issues. But for the project to work, it's important to choose your activities carefully.

Activities to understand CSR issues

each company has its own approach to CSR. For a CSR Team Building project to work, it needs to be built around the values that define your organisation. But it's just as important to get out of your comfort zone by choosing activities that will raise points that are rarely raised in everyday working life.

Moving forward together to become CSR players

A successful CSR Team Building activity is one that opens the way to more questioning, awareness and responsibility. Don't hesitate to get off the beaten track and help your teams discover ever more unexpected ways of looking after everyone's well-being.

What is CSR Team Building?

CSR Team Building is an approach that consists of strengthening cohesion between team members while raising the group's awareness of societal, environmental and economic issues that have a direct impact on the business world. This can be done through activities selected for their theme or for the way in which they tackle these important subjects, while offering your employees a fun time to spend together.

How does Team Building reinforce your company's CSR approach?

Team Building brings people together. It is based on activities and workshops designed to strengthen links between employees. When these activities include a responsible dimension (ecological, economic and/or societal), they convey a strong message and raise participants' awareness in a lively way. The experience is much more memorable than when the information is simply presented.
