In partnership with the Centre for innovation and management consulting enterprise, Tashkent business club Non-governmental Nonprofit Organization [NNO] started to implement \"Business\'s social responsibility\" project.
In order to implement this project the club received a grant from the Fund for supporting Uzbekistan\'s NNO in September this year. Within the framework of the project the work will prolong until mid-2007.
The purpose of the project is to create prerequisites in making progress in the processes, which will make it possible to switch over from simple charity to business\'s social responsibility before the society, and also to organize constructive dialogue between the state local agencies and businessmen with a view to produce forms of social partnership, the Centre for innovation and management consulting enterprise\'s press release says.
Business\'s socially important initiatives are not paying tribute to fashion, it is a response to a change in society\'s expectations from business, and moreover, this becomes a normal practice of conducting business. Today, in order to become successful in business, it is already insufficient to honestly pay taxes, to ensure worthy wages to employees and income to shareholders. The society expects from business more deeds, namely ? making contribution to the solution of social problems.
