Membership in the IRDO institute network
There is a trend in Europe, where responsible companies and organisations decide to become members of organisations that strengthen social responsibility. In this way, they gain reputation, loyalty of their customers, bigger motivation of employees, better cooperation with the community and other business partners. They also increase their competitiveness, social and business capital and innovativeness.
Members of the institute are companies, foundations, organisations and individuals. We are brought together under the Council of the institute, which supports the work of the institute and discusses overall development and progress of the institute. We exchange knowledge of various scientific and business fields, inform about the meaning of social responsibility and connect economic, social and other interest groups with the intention of executing and creating projects for more social responsibility in Slovenia and abroad. Once a year we organize a meeting of all members of the institute, and members are invited to various events organized by the institute and our partners.
Members contribute to the development of the institute and its work, and we receive numerous benefits. We participate by helping create work programs, we attend various debates, have free access to information and news on our portal and e-publications of the institute (newsletters, books…), we have special discounts at using the products and services of the institute (training, counselling, research…), and we exchange practical experiences. Through our membership in other organisations (CSR Europe…), we get knowledge and connections, that we couldn’t get otherwise. In this way we are strengthening our reputation, social and business capital and we contribute to our own and shared social responsibility.
Since 2008 we have about 100 members and partner organisations. The collective members consist of various companies and organisations. Meetings and events are attended by members of the leadership or specific areas of expertise, members of management boards, and the chairpersons of bigger Slovenian companies, organisations and foundations. Individual members are: students, researchers, scientists, experts and everyone who is aware of the meaning of SR and is therefore indirectly involved.
Legal persons can become members of the IRDO institute anytime (collective membership), and so can individuals who sign a membership agreement about the collective membership and respect the rules of the institute.
We welcome you to participate and to do so morally and financially, as well as with your expertise, support our efforts in the development of social responsibility and strengthen your own work in this field.
