Doing Good is Good Business
Become a Socially Responsible Organization…
The business community has discovered that doing good, is good business with significant financial and non-financial benefits. The level of social need is evident and continues to grow. As community partners, business has the unique opportunity to mobilize people to make a positive impact through philanthropy and volunteerism. Employees want to work for companies that are socially responsible and customers are willing to spend more money with these companies. Regardless of bottom-line benefits, purpose-driven organizations know that giving back is an opportunity to be a community leader and drivers of social change.
Commonly referred to as Corporate Social Responsibility programs, companies are weaving charitable funding, volunteerism and sustainability programs into their DNA, resulting in better performance and an enhanced public image. According to The Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP), philanthropic companies have experienced an increase in median revenues of 11% while their non-philanthropic competitors revenues fell by 3% during the same time period. CECP research also found that six out of ten consumers are willing to pay more for a product or service from philanthropic companies with good values. Simply put, companies that give back to their community outperform those that do not.
Employees that participate in volunteer activities, experience an increase in personal fulfillment, happiness, and company pride, resulting in higher engagement levels. Team building occurs naturally during volunteer activities, working side-by-side with co-workers, senior management and business partners. Even non-participating employees become engaged and take pride in their socially responsible organization.
