Priorities for a Socially Responsible BusinessA key priority for a socially responsible business should be the ongoing drive to develop and maintain strong and mutually beneficial relationships with the community. Businesses that take an active interest in community well-being can generate community support, loyalty and generosity.
Ways a Business Can Get InvolvedBusinesses engaging in effective community relations and involvement projects typically also conduct outreach in the community. This outreach aims to prevent or solve local problems, nurture social partnerships, and generally contribute to the overall quality of life in the community. Businesses can also build community relationships by contributing money, time and resources. An example of this would be:
- Sponsoring community events, such as fundraisers or sports teams.
- Providing materials, consulting and other resources pro bono.
- Partnering with startups and newer businesses, helping them get off on the right foot.
