For so many of us, corporate social responsibility is really important.
It changes where we work, what we buy, how we perceive our favourite childhood brands. But many of us are stuck working in organisations that don’t get it yet, and they’re not getting our best. There’s still too many companies producing plastic plants, ignoring their diversity statistics, and exploiting the natural resources and workers of foreign countries, all to spin a profit.
What is step changing?
Step Changers are the people inside organisations working to bring about change…
They could be a group of employees, leaders, dedicated sustainability managers, or everyday workers wanting to speak out to make a difference. To do this at work can be hard and scary, especially if you’re battling internal politics, communication hierarchies, bureaucracy, or management, or if you’re new to the team. We support step changing workplaces with the resources and evidence necessary to make building a corporate social responsibility programme for their team as easy and effective as possible.
… because our values don’t disappear when we reach the office.
The term ‘step change’ captures the idea that it’s hard to change everything problematic in one go or to fight what feels like an uphill battle, but collective change is made a lot easier if we all focus on our own patch of good and trust others around us to do the same. For most of us, the workplace is where we spend most of our day to day lives and so it is important we’re able to make good for the world while we’re at work too. To create real change, all of us as consumers, businesses, and governments have to be brave in taking that one step, whatever it might look like.
