ISO 26000 gives guidance on social responsibility, what it means, what issues an organization needs to address in order to operate in a socially responsible manner, and what is best practice in implementing social responsibility. ISO 26000 contains voluntary guidance, not requirements, and therefore is not for use as a certification standard like ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004. Thus it helps organizations move from good intentions to good actions. The principles of ISO 26000 are in line with the UN Global Compact and also ensures consistency with ILO labour standards.
The ISO 26000:2010 Social Responsibility Assessment Module within Performax is designed to help organisations ensure continuous compliance to the standard, based on LIVE employee feedback on the key components of the standard. In addition, it presents advanced analytics and collaborative action planning capabilities. There is a 30-day free trial (max. 10 users) available for new customers.
The assessment module can be customised and implemented within 2-3 hours. The initial round of feedback from stakeholders may take 1-2 weeks. Reports are generated in real-time. So, within 2-4 weeks, you’ll be able to ‘sense and respond’ to social responsibility issues, and take action on innovative improvement ideas.
