There are many ways your business can give back this holiday season. As we head towards the end of the year, let’s take a quick look at a few ways your company can start creating impact now. We all know that giving feels so much better than receiving. However, you just might discover that building altruistic culture in your company can also elevate your public relations.
EMPLOYEES VOLUNTEER TOGETHER
Find a local cause that is important to you and your employees. For example, explore local homeless shelters, food banks and animal rescues in your area. Then, coordinate a time for everyone to volunteer together. Bringing employees together to volunteer can define company values and strengthen team bonds. Longterm, these values contribute towards building a strong company culture. Volunteering as a team is a win for community and business.
DONATE TO A CAUSE
There are endless benefits when your company donates towards a charity. Most important is the aid you provide to organizations that depend on donations to create impact. Work together with your employees to find a cause that is closely linked to your business or one your employees nominate. In return, donating to charities can improve your company reputation and earn respect from your employees.
Finally, there is nothing better than partnering exercise with giving back. For example, New York City is hosting the Jingle Bell Jog. This 5K enables runners to raise money for different youth programs. In return, these funds will aid close to 250,000 children nationwide. If interested, this race is just around the corner and happens on December 14th. Check locally to see if there is an event happening in your community this holiday season. This is a great way to get the team together outdoors while raising money for organizations in need.
