Corporate Social Responsibility
The corporate citizenship efforts of a business are increasingly important to stakeholders. As a result, many companies are beginning to focus on developing a robust, inclusive corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy. Businesses that demonstrate a culture that is focused on values, dedication to community and a commitment to excellence attract a diverse, high-performing workforce.
The first step is to begin by making an impact in the communities where your business is located and where employees, along with other stakeholders, live and work. When initiating a corporate social responsibility strategy, it is important to give employees a voice. Local philanthropy to organizations that employees are passionate about can increase engagement and improve the image of your business. That said, building an effective CSR strategy also means connecting philanthropic efforts to your core business or ethical standards. It is unproductive to make donations to an unrelated cause or as a marketing scheme.
