Chairman's Note

It has been my passion and work for almost 20 years to gather together Corporate University professionals from across the world and ultimately helping to shape the future of our profession. GlobalCCU is truly the unique global community of Corporate University peers, and our motto, beyond borders, beyond cultures, beyond continents, is as relevant today, if not more, as it was when it was first created.

The GlobalCCU services my team and I have worked hard to create aim to deliver maximum value added benefits with the purpose of encouraging peers to connect together (both physically and virtually), share, question, collaborate, innovate, challenge and learn from each other. My mission is to help them demonstrate their value to People, Business and Society.

Corporate Universities
A lever of Corporate Responsibility

GlobalCCU Publisher

The book’s primary aim is to help companies understand how their corporate university can play an active part in using societal responsibility as a governance and management tool.

Corporate Universities have reached a critical point in their development. These self-appointed “universities” – educational structures within major private and public corporations – are spreading on a global scale. Their initial purpose was to provide employees with a broad range of skills and help companies implement their business strategies. Today, this original mission is still vitally important, but they cannot remain detached from the major issues and the guiding principles that govern contemporary society. Corporate Universities have become more influential and have branched out into other activities, one of which is extremely important – the development of Corporate Responsibility.

The laudable principles of Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainable Development, and Corporate Citizenship have been knitted together by ideologists, companies, international organizations, and civil society. However, these fine and intelligent principles are only worthy if they leave the drawing board! Corporate responsibility isn't something that can be bought in a supermarket – it has always been something that needs to be learnt and put into practice.

The author invites companies to make their Corporate University a lever of their corporate responsibility. It is not only a question of fashion or of image. It is a question of ethics. It is also a question of global regulation. It is urgent to help directors of education and sustainable development and social responsibility officers to work together, with internal and external stakeholders, in order to ensure that corporate responsibility becomes a true leadership tool.
