The Slovenian award for social responsibility HORUS 2009-…
The mission of the HORUS award is to promote holism in thinking, innovation in working and responsibility in conducting Slovenian companies’, organisations’ and individuals’ activities. With the HORUS award we wish to strengthen the awareness of the meaning of social responsibility and warn on humans’ interdependence. Since 2009 we publish a call each year for various categories, we promote examples of good practice of Slovenian companies, organisations and individuals through seminars and publications in media, and through consultation in preparing SR strategies we encourage them to a more responsible and effective business activity. The archive of awarded companies and organisations has already grown into a library of examples of good practice in areas of social responsibility and is an invaluable source of skills and knowledge in the field. We bestow the HORUS award in collaboration with the Slovenian association for public relations (PRSS) and many support partners. More at: www.horus.si
IRDO international conference (e.g.) 2006-…
The international conference of the IRDO institute with the title of “SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND CURRENT CHALLENGES” highlights certain topics in relation to social responsibility. Since 2006, the conference has been creating a rich tradition of research in behaviour and the development of social responsibility, and we organize it in collaboration with numerous support partners.
We organize the conference each year to strengthen social responsibility in Slovenia. The development of social responsibility is in fact critical in all areas of social life, as well as the connection of various stakeholders that work in this field. Also important is the comparison of research and theoretical points in regard to practical experiences – in the legislation, economy, social work, protection of the environment and elsewhere.
We connect theory with profession, the scientific side with practical examples of usage, we connect professions interdisciplinary to help solving problems of modern society. Interesting theories and solutions to problems are exchanged each year in the company of scientists, consultants, operative experts and many others. The proceedings which get compiled at these conferences have a permanent scientific expertise value, as they enable the readers to transfer the accumulated knowledge to their business and everyday practice.
The honorary sponsor of all IRDO institute’s international conferences was the president of Slovenia, first Dr. Janez Drnovšek and Prof. Dr. Danilo Türk, and now Borut Pahor. Co-organisers of the conference are many partners – organisations, ministries, chambers of commerce, the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, Salzburg, the International Federation for Systems Research (IFSR), Vienna, Slovenian Research Agency
