Allens wins CSR gong

Allens wins CSR gong

Allens Arthur Robinson has been recognised for its corporate social responsibility program.

ALLENS Arthur Robinson has been recognised for its corporate social responsibility program at the Australian Human Resources Institute Awards held in Melbourne last night.

Allens won the Danah Zohar Award for corporate social responsibility, ahead of the other finalists, Atlassian, Guild Group, Luxottica, and Main Roads Western Australia.

The firm's director of people and development, Susan Ferrier, said the award was recognition of the firm's longheld belief in the importance of its corporate social responsibility role.

Among the firm's core corporate social responsibility initiatives are a Reconciliation Action Plan, an extensive pro bono practice, support for charitable organisations, responsible environmental practices, the Women at

Allens program, and academic, sporting and cultural sponsorships.

The award's judges said that Allens has shown that it takes seriously its responsibilities as a member of the business community to show leadership and to contribute to the public interest.

The firm was also a finalist in the Wayne Cascio Award for Responsible Restructuring.

This latest recognition comes two weeks after Michael Rose won the Neller HR Champion and the firm was nominated in the categories of HR Partners Award for Best HR Leader and the Mastertek Award for Employer of Choice (more than 1000 employees) at the HR Leadership Awards.
