Corporate social responsibility, shared-value, and purpose-driven companies—all represent the changing lexicon of using business as a force for good. 

With 51% of employees stating that they wouldn’t work for a company that didn’t have a strong social and environmental commitment, employers are taking notice of corporate responsibility and putting these principles into practice in the workplace.

This session will discuss the changing role that corporate responsibility has in the workplace in our society and offer practical tips for incorporating it into your culture and workplace.

BoCK Competencies Discussed:
Workplace: Corporate Social Responsibility

For more than 20 years, Kathy Pedrotti Hays has helped organizations adjust their actions for maximum positive social impact.  By blending experiences from both non-profit and for-profit businesses; Kathy helps companies drive revenue, generate success and create positive work environments by developing and implementing social responsibility and giving programs.

Kathy’s career in corporate social responsibility began as the first marketing director for an Ohio-based law firm. Here, she realized organizations that acted in a socially responsible way could recognize profits beyond the bottom line.

To foster this interest, she earned a Master in Public Administration with an emphasis in nonprofit management through the IUPUI School of Public and Environmental Affairs and immediately began building her career in both the nonprofit and for­profit sectors.

She cultivated her leadership ability at AIDServe Indiana as the statewide director of education and training. She then became the executive director of the Marion County Family Advocacy Center where she assisted the organization in coordinating child abuse and domestic violence investigations. In that role, she was responsible for managing a staff of 28 and a budget of $1.5 million derived from federal, local and private sources.

Kathy has helped to grow and develop the social enterprise movement by assisting companies in their business planning and implementation of their social responsibility. Kathy also recently assisted the first Indiana-based company in attaining  bcorp status.

She has significant facilitation experience and currently serves as the Indianapolis facilitator of the Women’s Presidents’ Organization, an international organization that provides monthly confidential peer learning sessions for women business owners with revenues in excess of $2 million annually. She has facilitated numerous client and neighborhood focus groups and key informant surveys for strategic planning and collaboration projects done on behalf of small, medium and large nonprofit and for-profit organizations.
