ICRS has come a long way since its launch just over three years ago. We now have around 300 Individual Members and 60 Organisational Members together with a further 2,000 people who receive the Institute’s fortnightly newsletter. This rapidly growing and diverse membership is supported by a rich set of resources and events to help them increase their positive impact on both society and the environment. With CRS careers becoming more popular and specialised than ever before, we thought it was time to take stock.
Congratulations to ICRS Director Dr Sam Healy, for her British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
The Honour was awarded in recognition of her programme directorship of the 5% Club. The 5% Club is focused on creating momentum behind the recruitment of apprentices and graduates into the workforce. Its members consist of employers in the UK who want to make a difference and support the UK’s ability to compete in increasingly tough global markets.

After I spoke at the ICRS Exchange last month, many of you have asked for copies of the IBE Business Ethics Framework. It maps out the process of how to establish an open and responsible culture, which can lead to enhanced trust and reputation, and as a result, improve financial and operational performance.
