How did Corporate social responsibility become capitalist social responsibility?

“There is increasing pressure to dress up CSR as a business discipline and demand that every initiative deliver business results. That is asking too much of CSR and distracts from what must be its main goal: to align a company’s social and environmental activities with its business purpose and values.

- Harvard Business Review, ‘The Truth About CSR’.

What is the impact of positive CSR?

A Workforce of the future report found 59% of millennials would gravitate towards a company with pronounced corporate social responsibility programs.

According to a Glassdoor survey, 75% of employees aged 18-34-years-old expect their employees to take a stand on social issues.

A 2016 Cone report found that 74% of employees found their job more fulfilling when they are provided with opportunities to provide a positive impact.

YOUR business can be full of local volunteering legends

The Social Society will match you with local organisations genuinely seeking the skills running through the brains, veins and fingertips of your workforce.

Instead of CSR being a box-ticking exercise undertaken with rolled eyes and shrug - park litter-picking, anyone? - your business will have a tangible effect in the local community.

This is positive in its own right, plus you’ll have a happier, more motivated team who are proud of their business. *Drops mic*.





A Social Society Discovery Day can improve your CSR and all-round employee ju-ju:

You’ll learn – with the aid of LEGO! – the role your business already plays in the local community.
You’ll learn the transformative effect your business and team could have on your local community.
We’ll unpick your core values and discover how you can grow with greater purpose – whilst retaining these values.
We’ll vision board, set team goals and develop models of support for your employees. End result = increased staff retention.
We’ll help you identify the best options for local volunteering in your area.
If you’re reading this, chances are you’re already a badass founder/manager/supervisor – we’ll help lead with increased compassion and community-focus.
There’ll be a silent disco. That’s all we’re saying.

Prices for Discovery Days are on a case-by-case basis.
