“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give” (Winston Churchill)
Many companies have made social responsibility an integral part of their business model. It’s an increasingly important issue for any organisation. There is a shift towards making a positive contribution – or at least reducing a negative impact – on a corporate and individual level.
More companies today believe in giving back to the community, as they begin to understand how economic growth is linked to social and environmental wellbeing. To be sustainable and credible, organisations have to take the social and environmental consequences of their actions into account.
Is social responsibility integrated in your organisation? How can we strike a balance between economical growth and the welfare of the workforce, our families, the local community and the larger society? And how can we be socially responsible as individuals? How do our actions affect communities outside our immediate circle of family and friends?
