Who should attend

This course is relevant for managers and leaders in public and private organizations and across sectors. By attending this course, the participants will develop knowledge and skills needed to practically work with social sustainability. This is not a prescriptive course – rather, it is a course that aims to broaden participants’ knowledge and critical thinking on how social sustainability can be part of corporate sustainability.

About the course

Majority of organizations in the public and private sectors recognize the importance of the three pillars of sustainability (economy, environment, and social/people). In practice, however, the emphasis on these pillars vary greatly. Traditionally, financial sustainability has been the prime concern for organizations. Growing awareness of organization environmental footprints has resulted in an increasing integration of environmental consciousness in strategic decisions. Far less attention, however, has been devoted to social sustainability – in particulate, to the social impact resulting from people management decisions.

This course responds to the need for social sustainability integration in organizational life. As such, it focuses on people management in organizations from a sustainability perspective and discusses the role of managers and leaders in designing and maintaining sustainable work systems that contribute to corporate sustainability and societal sustainable development.

The various learning activities are based on recent scientific research in the field. The course, additionally, addresses some of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the practical complexity of concurrently attending to the competing demands of sustainability.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • Sustainable people management
  • Developing strategies, policies and practices for sustainable people management
  • Assessing and communicating sustainable people management

The course will be delivered using the Insendi platform and webinar tools such as Adobe Connect
