How companies add Human Capital to CSR

India Giving ChallengeMUMBAI: Time is money, the saying goes. When put into social good, it can actually be a good substitute to money. From merely writing cheques towards CSR activities to supplementing the non-profit sector with human capital - the time clocked by employees who volunteer for social causes - India Inc is addressing a critical issue which every non-profit organization (NPO) faces: dearth of managerial talent.
