What skills does Acre look for in a CSR professional?
The technical expertise required to drive sustainable change varies from person to person, but driving real change in purpose-driven professions takes more than technical expertise.
From our experience working with over 100 market-leaders, we understand the sustainability skills and behaviours required to drive this change.
We develop and assess against our bespoke competency framework of non-technical skills, built based on data that outlines what 'good' looks like in over 2,000 purpose-driven professionals. We believe that those non-technical skills, such as Bussiness Insight & Inclusive Leadership, make an effective leader who can drive change and deliver impact.
Find out more about our Sustainability Leadership Assessments here.
We work with your people, the leaders of today and of tomorrow, taking the time to understand the skills your business needs to achieve your ambitions and create impact. And, with our sustainability recruitment capabilities, we can advise on talent solutions that are designed to deliver this change.
We believe that a continuous approach to development leads to different types of actions, resulting in more thoughtful and impactful behaviours. That’s why our sustainability leadership development programs include time between sessions to put theory into practice; providing an opportunity to reflect, think and take meaningful action.
Find out more about our CSR Leadership Development Programs here.
What should a corporate social responsibility professional get paid?
There is a range of things to consider when it comes to compensation within the sustainability marketplace. We survey the sustainability industry every two years as part of our Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability (CR&S) Salary Survey, which aims to understand the evolution of the marketplace over the past 10 years and to unpack topics related to gender and diversity pay gaps, breakdowns of compensation by global region and sector, and much more.
