How corporate social responsibility benefits the whole community
Many companies have now introduced an internal corporate social responsibility policy to their business activities, with the aim of improving their business operations to limit negative consequences to the environment and the planet as a whole. This has obvious advantages to the company, and even to the employees who participate in these programme, but what of society as a whole? How does corporate social responsibility benefit the whole community?
Employees more often than not live locally in the community – so they can see the huge benefits their company is contributing with CSR activities, which will impact directly on them and their families, friends and neighbours. This ‘feel good’ factor has really positive implications for staff retention, recruitment and loyalty, leading to more employment and better long term prospects for these communities.
Supporting local charities has always been at the heart of ReGen’s CSR activity, and we regularly hold coffee mornings, participate in charity truck runs and hold fundraisers for causes close to our heart. We love being able to give back to the community and see the funds raised be put to worthy causes. Check out the rest of our news section for the full scope of our charitable work and the local groups that we support.
Having a corporate social responsibility strategy can also have a knock on effect to encourage others to act responsibly too in other areas of their life. It can help improve overall environmental responsibility, educate people to make greener choices and encourage personal growth and development in an area which could become a new passion for someone.
Our business is built on great service and building lasting relationships with our suppliers and customers, and like many other companies with a CSR policy, our core beliefs and values help us to achieve this. We feel that we can enhance relationships with our whole community by acting responsibly and selflessly to make a better place to work and a better community to live in.
