Social Good: A Hot Trend Among Businesses
A lot of companies now are exerting a lot more humanitarian efforts in order to create a bigger social impact. This is a very positive trend, as the results are definitely showing good already. Corporate social responsibility is already part of so many companies’ values, and even more hotshots are getting on board with conscious consumption and social procurement. Focusing on such efforts have done a lot of companies good, and even with that said, it is still an emerging thing amongst industries – but more companies are following suit.
Helping out to create greatness
Any company can do this in any scale. Through social procurement, companies get their goods from social enterprises or those sources who aim to help the underprivileged. Big scale companies sometimes do this in their smaller departments, since social enterprises usually produce in small batches. With this said, however, some big scale companies fund social enterprises so that they can produce more and help more people in the process. Another thing that they do is to hire staff that is fro impoverished backgrounds. They are delegated to admin work as their way to empower them under their roof. If they take them under their roof, they also get tax cuts as well.
Being a role model
Adapting corporate social responsibility to the company’s set of core values is also known to improve consumer behavior. Companies, in this case, serve as pillars of doing good deeds. Companies, as big as they are, are big enablers for any type of action – and to do something brilliant like doing action that has a positive impact will definitely create waves out of ripples. This also adds a dimension of humanity in any company, which is a good image to consumers. It is important for any company to give out an image that they care and that they mean well with the services that they provide.
A conscious choice for humanity
Through conscious consumption, companies and enterprises are becoming more and more responsible with all of their actions. This shows genuine concern with all the people of the world, the environment, and everything that can affect the world. This also got a lot of people thinking in terms of how they are running their lives. This movement focuses on the greater good, and how the world is collectively making an effort to make the world a better place to live in. This also means supporting smaller businesses, social enterprises, and businesses that have a more “genuine” sense of purpose. With this thinking, it’s not just about profit anymore.
As mentioned, a lot of companies are following suit with such line of thinking. A lot of enterprises, both big and small, are urged to adapt to this movement since their contribution is highly valued in the world today. Right now, the big guns are urged to take the lead to create a world with ore heart and humanity – two things that are evidently lacking in today’s society. At the end of the day, everyone’s cooperation is called for in making the world a better one for all its citizens.
