The Benefits of CSR
A company’s sense of responsibility towards the community has become increasingly more important year after year, due to consumers are looking for more than just high-quality products and services. When making a purchase, consumers are holding companies accountable for how they socially contribute with CSR.
Over the years, BEST has developed a great lineup of charitable give-back programs and has built long-lasting relations with the top philanthropic organizations. Our CSR programs can be delivered anywhere in North America and feature group bonding activities designed to boost team spirit and unity while helping less fortunate members of your community. These uplifting events include activities, games, and challenges resulting in the creation of items for donation to local and national charities for the benefit of overseas soldiers, schools, the homeless, children, the elderly, and Alzheimer’s patients – to name a few.
Here are a few of the benefits of CSR:
- Increase public image
- Boost employee engagement
- Positive workplace environment
- Increase creativity
- Encourage professional and personal growth
In a 2017 study by Cone Communications found that of the majority of consumers surveyed 87% said they would purchase a product because a company supported a cause they care about. More importantly, a whopping 76% will refuse to buy from a company if they learn it supports a cause contrary to their own beliefs.
“A company’s CSR strategy is a big factor in where today’s top talent chooses to work, often referred to as the triple bottom line: people, planet, and revenue. Companies are encouraged to put that increased profit into programs that give back.”, Susan Cooney, global diversity manager at Symantec.
Participating in CSR team building programs are both fun and fulfilling.
