Corporate social responsibility is often stereotyped as the donation of money to charitable organizations but in fact it is so much more.
“Shared value companies recognize that there are tremendous opportunities for innovation and growth in tackling social problems as core business objectives. Shared value is not social responsibility, philanthropy, or even sustainability, but a new way to achieve economic success. It is not on the margin of what companies do but at the center.”
Porter, M. & Kramer, M. (2011). How to Fix Capitalism: The Big Idea. Harvard Business Review.
Charitable and philanthropic contributions are explicitly the most correlated to corporate social responsibility. Smaller organizations often do not have the resources or funding to engage in large charitable donations. This leads to philanthropic and charitable work often being overlooked in smaller organizations.
Equity Vision Consultants actively donate time and resources to charitable foundations and believe that giving back is as crucial to a vibrant company as acquiring new work. Engaged employees, high retention, group decision making, attention to work-life balance and small community contributions are what characterizes the approach of Equity Vision Consulting.
