Social and Environmental Impact of Co-operatives
The intern will work with the project supervisors to develop an online tool to capture 15 key performance indicators (KPIs) that reflect social and environment performance of co-operatives in Canada. The intern will attend focus meeting with the supervisors in order to identify the co-operative participants requirements. The intern will complete a systems mock-up and detailed user requirements document that will be approved by CEARC. An online web-based system will be developed to gather submitted data, produce benchmarks and functionality to create on-demand reports. The Web-based tool is a key component of CEARCs social and environmental reporting index project. While the tool will be designed to capture 15 KPIs for this project, it will have the capability to enable the CEARC systems administrator to add many other categories over time. This system will provide significant benefits for CEARC as a mechanism to identify and report KPIs that reflect a way array of co-operative performance elements.
