Trialogue’s CSI strategy refresh offerings in response to COVID-19

The urgency with which all sectors of society must act to address South Africa’s gaping socioeconomic divide is only reinforced by Covid-19. The environment has changed irreversibly in the past few months and corporate social investment (CSI) needs to adjust to the new and growing societal needs as well as the additional resources or constraints on the business.

Corporate Reporting

Trialogue offers a full CSI reporting service, from information gathering and writing to design, print and delivery. We apply our knowledge of CSI to ensure that the right information is included in clear, compelling editorial. Our CSI reporting work varies from project case studies for different audiences and platforms (brochures, websites, annual reports, posters) to published foundation reports. The range of services we offer includes concept design, information collection, writing, editing, proofing, design, photography, print management and delivery. 

Why do it? 

Studies show that there is significant value in a company’s good reputation, and CSI can make an important contribution to this. Communicating your CSI strategy, activities and the impact of these on society promotes your commitment to South Africa’s development challenges and keeps important stakeholders informed.
