What is CSR?
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is when a company operates in an ethical and sustainable way and deals with its environmental and social impacts. This means careful consideration of human rights, the community, environment, and society in which it operates.
If you’re a business owner, the days of operating solely for profit are gone. Whilst this is obviously still important, many companies are now focusing largely on corporate social responsibility.
Benefit #1: Improved public image
This is crucial, as consumers assess your public image when deciding whether to buy from you. Something simple, like staff members volunteering an hour a week at a charity, shows that you’re a brand committed to helping others. As a result, you’ll appear much more favourable to consumers.
Tips from WYND Team 👉 : Always remember that how the public perceives your brand is vital to the success of your business.
Benefit #2: Increased brand awareness and recognition
If you’re committed to ethical practices, this news will spread. More people will therefore hear about your brand, which creates increased brand awareness.
Tips from WYND Team 👉 : Get in front of consumers where they are, and take advantage of all the exciting awareness opportunities available in the digital world today, and to come in the future.
Benefit #3: Cost savings
Many simple changes in favour of sustainability, such as using less packaging, will help to decrease your production costs.
Tips from WYND Team 👉 : You need to evaluate where your business is now and where you want to take it in the future. A well-thought-out road map is essential to properly forecast expenses and provide for contingencies.
Benefit #4: Increased customer engagement
If you’re using sustainable systems, you should shout it from the rooftops. Post it on your social media channels and create a story out of your efforts. Furthermore, you should show your efforts to local media outlets in the hope they’ll give it some coverage. Customers will follow this and engage with your brand and operations.
Tips from WYND Team 👉 : Customers engage with brands repeatedly when they feel appreciated, looked after, and excited by new and original offers. A consistent series of positive, reliable, and fruitful interactions with a business will help keep customers engaged and satisfied and ensure they come back.
Benefit #5: Greater employee engagement
Like customer engagement, you also need to ensure that your employees know your CSR strategies. It’s proven that employees enjoy working more for a company that has a good public image than one that doesn’t. Furthermore, by showing that you’re committed to things like human rights, you’re much more likely to attract and retain the top candidates.
