The business case for corporate community involvement has never been stronger. Whether through in-kind and financial donations, employee volunteer days, or enduring partnerships, CSR has the power to bring positive, measurable change to both the communities in which you operate and to your company. In fact, the benefits of corporate community involvement are two-fold, providing positive returns to local charitable organizations and neighborhoods and boosting company performance indicators, such as reputation and employee engagement. As your company builds partnerships and working relationships with local community nonprofits and service-based organizations, neighborhoods are strengthened.
Corporate community involvement programs can provide your company with a platform for showcasing products, employee competencies, and your firm’s values. There are even ways to promote networking and skill-building among employees while you are strengthening your community. Companies that use corporate citizenship to strengthen community partnerships are not only able to foster a workplace culture deepens employee commitment, but are also able to build enduring relationships in the communities within which they do business, a quality that benefits both companies and communities alike.
