With unemployment figures at unsustainably high levels and a GDP growth projection of below 2% in 2019, now more than ever businesses have to contribute towards the collective socio-economic rejuvenation pot.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a broad term used to describe a company’s effort to improve society in some way.
Trident Press believes in responsible corporate social responsibility. Businesses have a responsibility towards contributing to sustainable socio-economic development in communities they operate in.
Corporate social responsibility can boost employee engagement. A company that has a progressive CSR policy is likely to attract employees with the same ideals. Subsequently, engagement in CSR projects can yield an impressive work ethic and high staff morale. Corporate social responsibility helps attract and retain engaged and productive employees.
Taking part in CSR projects promotes individual philanthropy amongst staff members. Employees tend to take part in initiatives their employers prioritise. Companies that have policies of volunteerism often attract employees with the same ideals. Employees become more philanthropically aware when they work for companies that are socially responsible.
For non-profit organisations, engaging in CSR projects can mean forging lasting corporate partnerships with businesses with similar policies. CSR brings nonprofits and companies together, creating strong partnerships between the two.
Trident Press is committed to the continued support of worthy causes that improve the lives of deserving individuals.
