Social Impact Planning: Take Your Business to the Next Level

February 15 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

The purpose of this project is to bring awareness to area business leaders on how easy it is to incorporate corporate social responsibility into their businesses. This will include an introduction about what CSR is, what is included under that umbrella with examples, why it’s important to think about, and how implementing some simple strategies can increase company morale, boost engagement, and increase profits. The COVID-19 pandemic and social injustices for George Floyd and Brianna Taylor have changed the modern workforce. Companies are offering hybrid work models, and increasing salaries but are missing a key component, people are looking for value-aligned workplaces with a strong community presence. They want companies that take a stance on social issues whether that be its people, environment, or the community at large. Now is the time for companies to include CSR in their business models and this workshop will teach companies how to do just that.

*This workshop is in-person.*
