Working to make corporate social responsibility normal.
Step Changers is a non profit helping businesses to step up their Corporate Social Responsibility programmes. We support projects that work to eradicate poverty, educate kids, improve the environment, make things fairer, and improve healthcare in communities around New Zealand, the Pacific, and South East Asia.
Our aim is to change business culture from one where businesses don't talk about corporate social responsibility each day, to one where it becomes so normal it is boring to bring it up.
Ultimately, it's about improving the countries and communities our businesses are involved in, by providing better access to education, a clean environment, equal rights, and good healthcare. Key to this is recognising that it's the role of all businesses to play a part in building a better future in the regions they're involved with.
- Progress not perfection
Great social responsibility is imperfect - and so we're not about big promises of perfection. We're about making progress.
- Turn the wheel
Great social responsibility takes everyone on a team working to build the momentum.
- Go home proud
Every employee should get to go home proud.
- Leeeeean in
Great social responsibility takes an attitude of leaning in - of using expertise, entrepreneurial spirit, enthusiasm, experience and energy to solve the social problems that we don't have to solve, but would be nice to.
- Have glass pockets
Be transparent about where you're at, what you're doing, and what you're aiming to do. Spend diligently, report diligently, and make decisions with the best data available.
