ISS Denmark wins 2016 CSR People Prize for social responsibility

Facilities services provider ISS Denmark has won the CSR People Prize 2016 for actively using its size and position to raise awareness of corporate social engagement.

The award was presented by HRH Prince Joachim of Denmark at a conference in Copenhagen. According to the jury behind the CSR People Prize, ISS has distinguished itself through its longterm efforts to include a variety of vulnerable groups in the labour market. ISS also uses its size and market position to create new models, methods, and knowledge for how other companies can work with and extend their social responsibility.

Among its many efforts, ISS works actively to help integrate refugees into the labour market as well as psychologically vulnerable young people who have difficulty getting started with an education. The unifying goal is to help large groups of people get a job or an education. ISS has also developed a business case demonstrating that there are clear financial benefits from fostering diversity among employees.

Mette Rønnau, chair of the CSR People Prize jury and director at Cabi, said: "ISS stands out for being particularly innovative and for disseminating their experiences with social responsibility. It is a company that goes to incredible lengths to document and demonstrate the value of being socially responsible, without sacrificing the human and financial bottom line."

The CSR People Prize has been awarded since 1998 by the Business Forum for Social Responsibility (VFSA).
