Great Corporate Social Responsibility Programmes, from A to B.
We've developed our skills in corporate social responsibility consulting so we can help businesses of all sizes develop strong corporate social responsibility programmes. Our team consults on the strategy side of CSR, doing research and making recommendations to your Senior Leadership Team, and then we can also help you to get the programme up and running once you've signed off on the plan. It's at this stage we start matching your business with community partners from our database of more than 30,000 charities from around New Zealand, Asia, and the Pacific.
Best of all? When you work with us, you're supporting a registered charity in New Zealand. Funds used to cover our consultancy service are used to improve our services for smaller businesses that can't afford to invest in their CSR in a big way. Together, it means we're all working to make CSR normal.
What makes great CSR?
CSR isn't very well defined globally, but we've done the research for you. We've pulled together 16 standards for Great CSR that will help you get your head around the idea.
What is the value in being a socially responsible company?
When a business gives back to its community, everyone benefits. Staff feel better, the community is better off, and brand relationships are strengthened. There's economic evidence that CSR programmes boost productivity within a company, attract better people, and help generate better returns.
Still, right now, too many businesses don't see it as their place to be responsible for their community, and so CSR is often pushed aside, treated as either as a token gesture or an afterthought. We're trying to change that by promoting great CSR and great CSR strategies. 100% of what you choose to give goes directly to the community projects you choose to support.
Why a Step Change?
The term step change recognises that to create social change, consumers, governments, and businesses all have to do their bit, and take their one step. We encourage businesses to be better at corporate social responsibility, by making it easy for them to understand what great CSR looks like for their company and to find community projects around New Zealand, the Pacific and Asia to support.
