5 reasons to involve your team in CSR actions

Social Corporate Responsibility is a question which is being increasingly linked with the essence of the business. Today it is not enough to simply come across as responsible, now you have to be responsible and show it in every action you take.

In this context, the involvement and participation of your team in your company’s CSR strategy becomes essential. Every employer must have a voice inside of the business and feel part of the overall voice of the company.

Why? Because it gives your company gives these benefits:

1. An involved team is a coherent business. At the end of the day, a business is nothing more than the total of people which has been integrated into it. A team which doesn’t share the values that the company defends will find it difficult to represent it whatever the case, which will undermine the image of the company and go against the efforts made regarding CSR.

2. An involved team is a faithful team. If people play a fundamental role in trying to achieve a key objective in the company, getting faithful people to the company is a necessary condition for the positive development of the business. People are one of the most valuable assets of the company and involving them in the company’s strategical decisions makes them feel “at home”.

3. An involved team is a motivated team. Motivation moves mountains. Being able to get the employer to feel part of the business and its challenges gets the team to feel like these challenges are their own, and they will confront them with all of their energy in order to get better results.

4. Sharing goals and values facilitates a better connection between members of the team and, therefore, contributes to the creation of a more pleasant working atmosphere, with more efficient relationships with the people who have integrated into the team.

5. An involved team attracts talent. Working in a business in which the team has a voice and a vote makes working in it a rewarding experience. This involvement grabs the attention of potential new employees as it seems an attractive prospect.

We present you our annual year-end report. A year in which we have received 100% more donations than last year. This increase has been possible thanks to more than 113.000 people who have done their micro donation at the same time they were buying a product or service in one of the e-commerce with cause that we work with.

The funds received have allowed that 41 different NGO will implement more than 50 social projects in 26 different countries. The money will be addressed to 8 different kind of projects, such as the emergency campaigns, which represents a 35% of the projects.

More than 110.0000€ have gone to addressing the needs of refugees crossing the Mediterranean or fleeing from conflicts in Africa and people who have suffered the consequences of natural disasters, like those in Ecuador and Haiti, this means a growth in donations of 190%.

Education projects, the second on the list, have focused on ensuring education for children, young people and women in conflict zones in Asia and Africa. Unlike the previous year, the healthcare projects focused mainly on research and care for sick children in Spain, receiving 334% more donations. On the other hand, most of the food projects went to fighting childhood malnourishment in Africa, mainly, and to helping at-risk families in Spain.

These are our main results of 2016, a year in which we have achieved a capital increase of 2.3 million euros from European and private funds. Moreover, in 2016 we have launched a new raising channel that allows customers and employees of big corporations, to make donations and it has consolidated in the online banking sector. An example is the alliance we signed together with Banco Sabadell. With a team of 12 people – 5 more than the previous year – our goal for this 2017 is to triplicate the number of donations received and implement a new and revolutionary fundraising channel.
