CSR Times – an exclusive print publication on the subject of Corporate Social Responsibility in India, an organisation that works for the welfare of the society. CSR Times covers news, views, interviews, write-ups, facts and figures, interesting and thought provoking articles on the subject of Corporate Social Responsibility. The idea behind this publication is to highlight the good work that Corporates and Individuals are doing for the cause of society. So far, the Corporate Social activities which deserved to reach a greater audience are confined to the internal communication in organisations, or at the best they are covered in their inhouse magazines and annual reports. CSR Times provides a much needed platform for the Corporates and Individuals to highlight their contributions towards the welfare of society. Through CSR Times , we give nationwide coverage to Corporate Social activities, reaching out to a robust readership that includes Business Owners, CMDs, Directors, CEOs, CSR Heads and Representatives, HR Heads, Social Activists, from Corporate Houses, NGOs, Public Sector Units, Multinational Companies, Government Departments, Funding Agencies. etc., in almost every sector of industries.
