CISL Programmes provide life changing experiences for the employees involved, organisation changing opportunities for their companies’ partners and return real business benefits to the companies.
Working with five companies: BD, Credit Suisse, EY, Merck and Microsoft, and building on the learning from 2015 and 2016, Emerging World have launched the 2017 CISL Impact Study and Benchmark to provide:
- Deeper analysis from a significantly larger sample
- New areas of interest offering a greater depth to the data
