If one of our recent posts motivated you to start implementing CSR policies in your business, well now we are going to give you another list with four CSR actions which will not only maximise the positive impact your business has on society but which will also reduce costs and increase profits for your company.
Since Corporate Social Responsibility has a positive impact on everyone and is affordable for everyone, take note of these 4 CSR actions!
1. Promote actions which save energy. Switching off the lights when you don’t need them, reusing paper when it is not absolutely essential to use new paper, avoiding printing off documents when it isn’t necessary, switching off the computers before leaving the office … These practices don’t only show that you respect the environment, but they also help to reduce costs within the company.
2. Train your employees. To rely on a motivated team is to rely on people who are happy with their jobs, something which has a direct impact on our society but also on the company itself. A motivated team implies greater efficiency in the workplace. Make sure that you add value to your employees and you will see that, in the medium-term, counting on them and their energy will prove to be an investment and money-saving for the business.
3. Reconcile! Going back to point number two, a happy team has a direct impact on the economic results of the business. Did you know that one of the biggest worries for Spanish people is being able to reconcile their work life with their personal life? Make it easy for them, and you will notice that sooner rather than later, you will reap the benefits.
4. Donate your product or service. A donation to an appropriate organization or to a suitable movement could prove to be a strong tool for promoting your business. How much would it cost you to reach your target audience by paying for conventional media advertising? Do the maths; a lot of the time, investing in donations is essentially saving money in advertisement without giving up the benefits.
