The Community of Caring is the ultimate win-win-win. It strengthens communities. It creates a more engaged workforce. It contributes to strong business results. Through the Community of Caring, Center for Companies That Care makes it easy and provides numerous resources for your organization to be involved in the community in a socially-responsible way.
Alignment with Organization's Vision
Many organizations have already made a strong commitment to employees and communities. Being a company that cares provides another visible opportunity to live the values that already exist and reinforce the commitment.
Building Toward the Future
The next generation of employees are today's school children. By investing in the community, companies that care prepare the future workforce for the jobs ahead in order to aid them in improving themselves, their families, and their communities.
Making a Difference
Companies that care feel a strong sense of responsibility to their stakeholders and define their stakeholders broadly. Not only do they consider their financial shareholders as stakeholders, they also include employees and the members of the local communities in which they do business in the scope of "stakeholders." As society evolves, and the needs of employees and communities change, companies that care encourage other organizations to pool their shared knowledge and work together toward common goals that will improve people's lives. By capitalizing on group synergies and utilizing strength in numbers, companies that care accomplish more.
