At DFI, Inc. we recognize that businesses support corporate social responsibility initiatives for various reasons: to enhance the lives (and therefore productivity) of employees and their families; to improve the environment; to boost marketing efforts; or to simply make a difference. Our programs are tailored to respond to the forces that drive corporate social responsibility actions:
Regardless of why CSR efforts are being supported, our clients are always concerned that their programs be noteworthy and deliver impact. DFI assesses how governments and the international donor community are responding to various development challenges, to identify target niche areas ripe for client support.
DFI has worked with clients to more closely tie CSR spending with the efforts of international donors, foundations, and non-governmental organizations. Such a strategy can enlarge the size of a CSR initiative, heighten its public profile, or improve a company's reputation and local understanding in ways that enhance business prospects. The DFI public-private partnerships team works with clients to ensure maximum results from CSR resources.
CSR resources are often available from headquarter and country levels. DFI trains client staff to ensure coherence of company programs while responding to the unique challenges and conditions on the ground.
