Are social sector skills relevant to the corporate sector?

Posted by

This debate emerges when students keen on a career in sustainability and community work wonder if it’s better to move from corporations to NGOs or the other way round. The majority view leans in favor of business skills as more important than skill sets of NGO employees. So the overarching view is it’s all right to move from corporations to NGOs.

While true in some cases, this is not universal. Moving from community and issue based work to business jobs many a times is more rewarding. The multi-stakeholder relationships which a NGO manager deploys, the management of issues and solutions and corporate social strategy would not be possible without a grassroots mindset.
